Bit of a bummer after that rather impressive first half, especially Pass the Buck, but I'm not ready to abandon hope yet...

Mini Coopers are trickier than most cars, so it's actually kind of unsporting to put them in a game like Pathy. It would, in fact, appear to be just begging for a forced loss. Still, you never know... stranger things have happened... we shall see.

(RR with the do-overs)
  • Hand-cranked vegetable & nut chopper
  • Libman Freedom spray mop
  • Pair of glass "hidden heart" candlesticks

In one respect, that's the hard one gone; unlike most playings where you can logically narrow down the thousands digit to at most two choices, this time it really was a 1:4 chance. (Like I said, Mini Coopers are tricky cars.)

Unfortunately, it doesn't get any easier from here...

A perfecto on the last one-bid of the week!

Race Game, which the producers can't seem to make up their mind about the reveal for -- in front of the scrim or behind it? :
  1. Polaris Phoenix 200 ATV (RR)
  2. Sony 15.5" touchscreen laptop computer (750GB HD, 8GB RAM, headphones; RR)
  3. Pair of Apple iPod Nanos (16GB), Classic (160GB), & Shuffle (2GB; GOS)
  4. Avanti Fitness treadmill (GOS)

Today was, incidentally, the classic "in front" reveal.

$596
$1150
$2999
$3599

This one's easy. $596 is obviously going with the iPods, and that treadmill is most likely $1,150. The ATV and computer could go either way on the last two, but that shouldn't be too difficult.

45 seconds... go!

  1. I believe that tied the record for quickest Race Game win. IIRC some one did 9 seconds in either 1991 or 1992 on Race Game.
