Path to Perfection: 123123123's PG Gauntlet (S2, E6)

Calling all TPiR super fans! (So basically anyone on the site)

Do you have the pricing acumen, the pricing game skills and just the right amount of luck to perfect an episode of the Price is Right? Well, here's your chance to prove it.

Starting this Tuesday afternoon (6/15), the Numbers studio will open its doors to all contestants who want to try their luck.

Just like a normal show there will be 6 pricing games, but no IUFBs and a single showcase to bid on Range Game style.

Unlike a normal show though, all contestants will play all the pricing games at the same time. If you keep winning, you keep playing for a shot at perfect show bragging rights.

But the moment you lose a game, you'll be immediately escorted out of the building, deemed a poor pricer. (You'll still be able to play along for fun though)

The show keeps going until someone makes it to the end and wins the showcase, or all players are eliminated.

Will it be fun? I sure hope so. Will it be easy? Not a chance, as the crew fully expects most of you to flame out before the first commercial break  :lol:

But I love being proved wrong, so come one and all and flex your pricing muscles!

Since everyone who joins will play, no need for an elaborate sign up, but please give a simple "I'm in" so I know who's a part of it

I'm ready to outwit, outplay, outlast to the final showcase council...

This looks very intriguing, I'm in!
Quote from: Bill Todman
"The sign of a good game, is when you don't have to explain it every day. The key is not simplicity, but apparent simplicity. Password looks like any idiot could have made it up, but we have 14 of our people working on that show. There is a great complexity behind the screen. It requires great work to keep it simple."

"If any show, forget sports, Price is Right, [the audience is] the star of the show. Somebody... coming on down and losing their minds, and ... crying, that's the show. The show isn't me, the show isn't necessarily [a] can of soup, how much that is, it's watching people go bananas, and there's going to be some of that missing."

First off, good luck with the interview. It will probably start around 5pm eastern time, but you'll basically all only have to give one response per game in a 24 hour period, so not too time consuming.
