In honor of Glenn's work in the field of cryptography, the name of his game will be presented in ROT13. It's Fubccvat Fcerr:
  1. Frigidaire Affinity washer & dryer (CT)
  2. Panasonic 65" 3D plasma HDTV w/glasses (CT)
  3. Foosball table (RR)
  4. Pair of Dahon folding mountain bikes (RR)

Seems obvious to me that the foosball table ($600) is the one to be avoided in this lineup.

From where I sit, $45 for the tomato press, $50 for the iced tea maker, and $20 for the toaster oven. That leaves 6 and 1 left over, and doubt that's a $62 note dispenser. As Switcheroo setups go, this is one of the easier ones in recent memory.
