Based on my experience in looking up a hot tub price the other day (for Clock Game purposes), I would say L-H-L-H.

So much for my theory, but what the heck? I'll take being wrong if it's to the advantage of a stage player.

Since George didn't specify the maker (and thus, it's probably not Ashley), $7,568 seems the most likely option from where I sit. We all know the story, however—lately, I've been wrong more often than not, so perhaps use my predicitons as a barometer of what not to do. (For the record, it does seem weird to have two straight stage prizes worth very similar amounts like that...)

$14,800
$16,789
$18,685
$15,515
$17,480

Knowing how my gut instinct has led me astray too much this week, I'm going to go against it and say $18,685 is to be avoided (since everything in me suggests $16,789 is the car price).

Pick #1: $14,800

Reverse reverse psychology isn't helping either, it seems...

...in fact, nothing seems to help in this game. (And $3,000 wasn't nearly enough to consider stopping on halfway through.) I don't understand it; this game honestly isn't that evil by design. Difficult, yes, but not impossibly so.

2 for the Price of 1:
Trip to Anchorage, AK (6n, The Historic Anchorage Hotel, daily breakfast, ½d Seward Highway & Portage Glacier excursion; $4,812; RR)

(With the non-appearance of Bargain Game in this slot, that leaves Most Expen$ive as the only game to appear in every week thus far in Season 43.)

The last digit is obvious and the first digit is most likely to be 6, so if he picks the middle as his freebie he's got it made.

I'd say "Let's all be there," but that's the wrong network. ;^)

  1. Wait...Plinko for a MILLION dollars!?! O_o;

    IMHO, even playing it for $500,000 on the previous Big Money Weeks was way too much. I knew you had to be crazy in order to work on TPIR's staff, but...

    Hopefully, next week will give us playings of Line 'em Up and Triple Play!

    Would you believe, that's actually our first winner in this game all year?
    Wait, "Pick an Instant Win" was on a LOSING streak!?! O_o

  2. I'm not gonna go crazy for Big Money Week like I have with Dream Car Week, but I will sit back and see what develops next week.
