My favorite Price of Right game is the one where they do the prices of the grocery items. So fun!


Annie said...

PLINKO is my favourite game from the Price is Right!

I remember WAY back when Bob Barker did Truth or Consequences!

Plinko is my favorite. Gosh, my mom loved The Price Is Right, now both my kids are watchers when they have the time.

Great Giveaway - thanks Karen!

I loved the grocery pricing game. That was one I could try to do as well, not like plinco or some of the others. Have watched Bob Barker for many years and always thought he was a great man. His love of animals is also close to my heart.

I was raised on TPIR and love Bob Barker. I was sad to see him retire but honestly glad he has taken time for himself as he deserved it! What a fun show and for anyone who never saw him host, you missed a treat...and were you on MARS? How could you miss it? This is a joy to read....good luck to all on this really quick one week giveaway!

I love the grocery matching price game. It was the only one I could probably do. I have watched this show for over 30 years.

I liked the one where you had a limited amount of time to place price tags on different items and you won the item(s)that you priced right.

DEBIJOT said...

Plinko has always been my favorite game.

I would love to enter your drawing. My favorite game in Plinko or Hole in One. I am a follower.

Melissa - Shhh I'm Reading said...

I love the Cliffhanger game. I can hear the song it my head. I also like the grocery pricing game. I could usually do pretty well at that one.

I also follow. :)

Marie Burton said...

Goodness.. Plinko came to my mind first also..
I also like the game with the Hiker Guy going steadily up the hill, every time you got something wrong he went up higher and higher, and if he fell off the hill then you lost.
I have no idea what it is called. Barker is an icon, & I loved watching his show. It was probably the first game show I ever watched!

Never been a big follower of the game, but who can not know Bob Barker? Since May is memoir month I wanted to throw in a recommendation for a memoir that, while of the older babyboomer era, is really for everyone. "Cornfield Heiress" follows the coming of age of the author in the '60s.It's sexy, funny, nostalgic, descriptive and well-written. Great fun to read. You can think back to those long ago (and long-gone, I think)-- days lying in the grass catching butterflies. Times were simpler -- but then of course, the author's life gets more complicated, naturally.
