Interesting to see Temptation staged on the turntable... that would actually work.  Maybe this is the staging change John mentioned in The TALK is Right forum?

Also, it's interesting to see that their version of the SCSD split screen is the one introduced this season in the US TPiR!

Very interesting clip.  It's seems weird to me that they were still calling it "The NEW Price Is Right" after over 600 episodes.  How did the showcase round work?  It looks a little different from the U.S. format.

The main portion of the game consisted of nothing more than ordering the values of the showcase prices in order.
I support The Price is Right.

I find it interesting that they shot the show in what sounds to be an exhibition hall/convention center, rather than a proper studio.

Portugal has a split screen like that, too. Just check the "Portugal 2006" gallery in "Price Around the World", and you'll see what I mean. ;-)

The clip mentions 33 games. Let's see what we know was there and try to (finally) get a complete list. Here's the list from an old thread:

Any Number
Bonus Game
Bullseye
Cliff Hangers
Dice Game
Grocery Game
Hole In One
It's Optional
Lucky Seven
On The Nose
Race Game
Switcheroo
Temptation
Ten Chances
Trader Bob (but with a different name)

That's 15. Checking with my mother, who used to watch the show, we can also add:

Blank Check
Bargain Bar
5 Price Tags
Card Game
Check-Out
Three Strikes
Hi-Lo

Now we're up to 22. I can't see them not having Double Prices/2 Price Tags, so at most we need 10 more for the list. Depending on if/how they counted the SCSD and Showcase we could be as low as 7 (one for the Big Wheel, one for Double Bullseye, and one for the Showcase itself). Any thoughts on what the rest could be? [Before someone suggests it, we never had Golden Road. Or Plinko.]
