Wait, what're we doing at the Turntable if we're playing ½ Off?:

Apparently just a hiccup in stage instructions, since a jump-cut places Drew and Rachel by Door #2 where they're supposed to be...

  1. I see you noticed it, too. I'm guessing they originally planned to have the third game be one that DID use the Turntable (or Card Game), but swapped it out for Half Off at the VERY last minute and forgot to tell Drew!

    1. It couldn't possibly have been Card Game, because they'd already done the car game for the first half (Any Number). And ½ Off isn't the kind of game that can be a "quick" substitute for something else, because it's an elaborate prop that requires special setup. Realistically, I can only assume that Drew got some misdirection from the staff on that one, or that he momentarily forgot himself and thought ½ Off was supposed to be played at the Turntable.

  2. Wait, I thought you counted More or Less a partial if the player clears prize 2?
    Either way, aside from the Half Off win, I don't regret passing this up for the NY Auto Show! Camp Jeep FTW!

    1. I do, and it's marked as such on the Leader Board and in my record sheet. I just goofed on the "LOSS" text and color.
