Top 5 Best Games on The Price is Right
The Price is Right has been around in its current form since 1972. Once hosted by the acclaimed Bob Barker it is now hosted by the incredible Drew Carey. Through the decades, it has entertained audiences for generations and given away a lot of prizes to lucky contestants. So with good memories about to “come on down,” we look at the Top 5 Best Games on The Price is Right.
Best Price Is Right Games – Hole In One (or Two)
Hole in One is a game set up like miniature golf. The contestants guess the order of multiple items from cheapest to the most expensive. The more items they get in the correct order, the closer they get to place the ball to the hole. Although it was originally a single shot to get the ball in the hole, there has been the second chance added to sink the shot. Often times the grand prize for getting the shot is a car.
Best Price Is Right Games – Squeeze Play
Contestants are given 5 numbers and need to pick one of the numbers to take out in Squeeze Play. The remaining numbers are put together as an attempt at the price of the grand prize. Occasionally the price of the grand prize is five figures instead of four and an extra number is added. Thankfully, the contestant still only has to remove one number to get the winning price.
Best Price Is Right Games – Cliff Hangers
Contestants have to guess the price of three items and the difference they are off by is how far the little yodeling climber goes up the mountain. If the contestant is off by too large of an amount on the three items, the climber falls off the edge and the contestants lose the game.
Plinko is easily the most famous of the pricing games. Contestants are first given two prices to four different prizes that are wrong. The contestants pick either the first or second price as the correct one. If guessed correctly, the contestants are given a round chip. The chips are taken up to the top of a flat board where the chips are dropped down and end up at different places / prizes at the bottom. The added amount after all the drops is what the contestant wins.
A game where three contestants from the previous games spin a large wheel with the contestant lading closest to one dollar (in one or two spins) advancing to the final game of the show. If a contestant reaches exactly one dollar, they win $1,000 and another spin. The contestant can get an additional $5,000 if the wheel lands on a green colored section of the wheel or an extra $10,000 if it lands on the one-dollar space again.
