Flor will be floored indeed if she wins Five Price Tags:
2014 Kia Forté LX (1.8L, 6AT; AL)

$21,899
$17,405
$19,580
$20,790
$18,275

This is actually the second appearance of it, but since the first one occurred when I was out on the DL this is my first chance to comment on the new-look price tags for this game. They are now a lighter blue, with the prices having a beveled/shadowed effect, and the tags themselves now have a white border as well. It does look a bit less like cheap cardboard now, a nontrivial concern in this day and age of 720P HD.

I'm mildly surprised they didn't take the opportunity to finally update the prop too, but I guess you just don't mess with the classics, and Five Price Tags certainly qualifies as one of those. On the other hand, if they could finally put the name on Most Expen$ive...

After a few playings where I dared to hope that pattern had finally been broken, we're right back to players who think every price they're shown is nothing but wrong. When will they learn, if ever they do, that it's actually better in the long run to assume the prices are all true instead?

Ah well. It only takes one pick to win, after all. As a stock Forté, I'm going to go with $17,405 (the cheapest on the board) myself... and I'm going to assume Flor won't.

...Yeah, I think I'm just gonna stop predicting car prices now.

  1. Yamaha Zuma 50 motor scooter (RR)
  2. Prada his & hers leather accessories (RR)
  3. 17pc power & hand tool collection (AL)
  4. Goal-Flex air hockey table (AL)

...Not one, but two collections are offered here. Chances are high one of them will not be selected or revealed, thus rendering tha ARP a matter of speculation forever. This is just what I needed today...

Again, if a game has a bailout option and you don't take it, it becomes strictly a pass/fail situation no matter how much you actually end up with. Either you win the top prize, in this case the car, or it counts as a loss.

You know where Brenda's going if she doesn't get on stage this time, so I won't belabor the point (it's becoming too much of a cliché around here)...
