Rules: The game is played for a car or up to $5,000. A gameboard contains 30 cards: 11 Cs, 11 As, 6 Rs and two cards which read “CAR”. In order to win the car, the contestant must accumulate cards whose letters spell out CAR or get one of the two CAR cards. The contestant chooses two free cards from the board and may win up to three more by pricing each of three small items within $10 of its actual price. If the contestant exactly prices one of these items, they win all three additional cards and all three small prizes, regardless of whether or not one of them was missed along the way. After the cards are chosen, the contestant is offered $1,000 per card to quit the game and walk away. The cards are revealed one at a time; if the car is not yet won, the cash buyout offer is repeated with the remaining cards. The contestant wins nothing if he or she fails to spell CAR or get one of the two CAR cards after the last card is revealed.
Components: A gameboard with 30 numbered cards and 5 card slots at the bottom to insert chosen cards.
Space: The player should stand across from number chart because the information behind the number cards cannot be seen until later in the game. That information is displayed once all five numbers are chosen.
Goal: The goal of this game is to win the car by accumulating three cards with letters that spell out CAR or get one of the two CAR cards.
Core Mechanics: The contestant can earn up to three additional picks by guessing the prices of two-digit small items. If the contestant’s guess is within $10 above or below the average retail price, they win the item and another pick. An exact bid on any of the items wins all three items and picks.
The mockup of the Spelling Bee game I created includes the 30 numbered cards and the chosen numbers are colored in. In the image I provide above, I drew the 5 open card slots to represent where they should be placed. At the very bottom of the game board, I drew a hexagon which says how many letter C, A, R & CAR cards there are in total. The 3 prize items I chose to use for example are student related and not the most exciting, but just so you understand the item price guessing. On top of the item’s image, I used post-its to write the actual prices of the items. This game seems really fun, not only to watch, but to play also. So buzz on away and play to win!
The Price Is Right game my group chose to come up with modifications for is the Credit Card game which deals with knowing how to add up the value of items with a set limit in mind. We all enjoyed playing this game and thought of ways to change it up with new rules. The modification I thought about is subtracting the first selection amount from the credit card limit then continue choosing items until the new total limit is completed, and if the contestant goes over the amount, unfortunately they do not win any prizes.
