After my last encounter with one of these things a few weeks ago, where it was discovered they were considerably cheaper in the winter than they were in more temperate months, I'm going with $6,995 this time. Flop.

Daniel Flops along with me...

Grand Game:
  • Alexia multigrain onion rings
  • Dawn Platinum dishwashing liquid
  • Tillamook sweet cream butter
  • Snack Pack pudding
  • Steak-Umm sliced steaks (6)
  • Krusteaz honey cornbread mix

Either this has been there all along and I only just now noticed it, but they've added some subtle gas pump-style "ringing" to the sound effect as the target price "reels" go into motion. Nice touch, that.

If this were up to me, I'd avoid the Dawn and the Steak-Umms (the latter of which are surprisingly pricey, at least out here they are).

Target
$4.50
$1
Pudding
$1.59
$10
Baking mix
$2.59
$100
Dish soap
$3.99
$1,000

...And so much for my grand plans. But now it's pretty obviously the butter. Unless Tillamook (a brand I have, admittedly, never heard of) is some sort of gourmet butter that's like six bucks a box, it's the only thing left that looks under $4.50.

Go on...
Onion rings
$3.79
$10,000
WIN!
(Butter: $5.19; Sandwich steaks; $5.69)

...Sure, make me look like an idiot. I don't need your help for that! ;^P (At least I was dead on about the Steak-Umms...)

More or Less for the second straight show:
  1. Escalade Sports foosball table (RR)
  2. 8pc leather handbag collection (AL)
  3. Samsung 60" 3D LED HDTV w/4 pairs of glasses (AL)
  4. 2014 Hyundai Sonata GLS (2.4L, AT, auto-dimming rearview mirror, HomeLink, compass; RR)

Hopefully we'll at least get off the first prize this time.

Fortunately, it looks simple enough to get that far, anyway. Only the handbags will cause problems, but I'm thinking Less for those.

Ah, random accessories... what're you gonna do?

Come what may, Linda is taking home $6,585 worth of goodies from this game. I defy anyone to call her a "loser" with a straight face.

Of course, there's still one more hurdle to get over, and it's the biggest of all...

Car
$21,800

...and as usual, it's a coin-flip proposition. Heads or tails, More or Less, it's all the same.

Oh well... it's still a nice haul, but it could've been so much nicer yet. Even so, a great first half!

Switch? puts its season-high win streak (ten straight) on the line:
  1. StairMaster stepping machine (RR)
  2. HP desktop computer (16GB RAM, 2TB HD, 27" display, speakers, printer, upgraded graphics card; AL)

Beware those HP printers, however... mine just started printing advertisements all by itself over the weekend. Seriously, no kidding around. Dirty pool, HP, dir-tee pool.

Oh, and those prices should be switched.

This next one I can't make out, however, due to a reflection from the Plinko Plasma kinda drowning out the subtleties.
