New Pricing Game Idea: Fire the Cannon!
« on: September 24, 2023, 11:13:15 PM »
This idea might sound rather strange...but it's a chance to win 3 large prizes (may be furniture, cars, trips, etc.; you name it).

There are five "cannons" holding the price of a prize, a shower of confetti, or nothing at all. The three prices for the prizes and the confetti are hidden in the cannons at random. The contestant's job is to shoot off the cannons that have the prices of the prizes and/or shoot the cannon containing the confetti.

But the contestant doesn't get any free picks; they must earn their shots by knowing the prices of three medium prizes at the choice of two prices. Each correct guess earns the player a shot at the cannons, and the game will end in a loss if the contestant doesn't earn any shots.

After earning their shots, the contestant will "light up" the cannons (not literally, they're just toy cannons that blow air out) one at a time, hoping to find the cannon with the confetti, or a cannon they think contains a price of a prize. If a price tag - indicated by a large tag bearing the Pricedown font dollar sign in the show's logo - is expelled from the cannon, the contestant wins that prize, and has the option to either keep their earned prize(s) or risk their winnings, as firing the cannon that contains nothing equates to a "lose everything". However, if the contestant lights the cannon that shoots confetti, he/she automatically wins all 3 prizes.

The game ends after the contestant exhausts their earned shots and/or wins all three prizes.

sounds cool, is it safe. anyhow you how are we doing the lose everything canon. (it seems that the canon either has confetti or no confetti) what does lose everything confetti look like, The lose everything one is not going to self-implode right. granted it is nice to see someone making up a game.

No, nothing like that. The cannons would all be some kind of mechanical prop, so there's no self-implosion or anything dangerous. The confetti, however, would only fire out of one cannon at random; the rest of the cannons shoot either nothing (the lose everything) or will shoot a price tag for one of the prizes.
