TPiRecap: 8 April 2014


Before we start today, allow me to indulge in a brief plug. If you haven't subscribed yet to Wink Martindale's YouTube channel, you're missing out on some serious goodies any game show fan worth his or her salt would love -- including a look at the three "lost" Pricing Games of 1978: Shower Game, Finish Line, and Telephone Game. Until now the only visual evidence these three games existed was to be found in G-R.net's members-only Golden Gallery. There's also a playing of Punch-a-Bunch in its original "multiplier" format, not seen since 1979 (and even G-R doesn't have stills of it!). All this plus clips of ultra-rare pilots (sold and unsold) and a look at the Winker's extensive collection of memorabilia. It's a game show geek's dream channel! Definitely check it out.

She managed to get five full chances and used only about half the available time. This is, indeed, how this game needs to be played. I'm duly impressed!

See how nasty this game is? >_> I'm literally begging you now, guys, do something about this already. The game is just entirely too hard in its present form.

Not quite stock, but a Cruze is one of the less expensive cars on offer... I say if you can get it down to $16K or $17K you should consider cutting your losses.

Hard to fault him for doing that. I would've eliminated $18K next and wiped out.

It's been a pretty good day on stage so far, with only the evilness that is Stack the Deck to really rain on our parade. Alas, Tiffany's bidding has been such thas thes hasn't been able to participate in all this winning and Leftover Island is looming large on her horizon. Can she yet avoid the trip nobody wants to win?

  1. Apologies if asked before, but have you ever thought about recapping either the Kennedy and/or Davidson versions?

    1. I'm not averse to doing some of the eps that're on YouTube. I've even thought about doing a British or Australian episode just for variety. Maybe if I get more time over the summer break...
