In May of 2006, I, with the help of my parents for supplying the material, created a Deal or No Deal game that could be played at home. I didn't use 22 identical sealed boxes, but 22 identical matchboxes. Unsealed.

Image

I wrote the numbers. The handwriting has improved little in the 10 years since.

Image

Somebody else wrote the game board values, evidently. Missing here is the made-to-fit white card that was used to mount the value cards.

Image

The matchboxes contain two inserts of the box value. The handwritten and crayon shaded values were the originals whilst the more proper looking inserts were created a few months later... but never saw active use as the game was never played again once I'd finished updating the value displays! The source of the 'official' looking value cards was the actual, official, shop bought board game that had been released in August '06. I spent a long, boring afternoon scanning the inserts onto the computer, before re-sizing and printing them to fit the inside of the matchboxes. All the effort and all for nothing!

Image

Another innovation which I don't remember using in active play was the creation of the three 'LTL Blue boxes'. These value cards were created in excel spreadsheet once I'd learnt what font was used for the values in the real TV show. Eurostile, la'. I presumably didn't use the official board game style values because there wouldn't have been a '£2,000' insert.

Image

Curiously, I found that Box 3 of the 'LTLs' contained peanuts. Perhaps I was saving them for later.

Image

To complete, here are the show's wildly contrasting bottom and top prizes. The 1p box here...

Image

... the £250,000 box here. The original handwritten value must have become unusable, hence its replacement with a Word document typed value.

That's a great idea PK. You could make your own fan series with this! :-D

All the effort and all for Tinypic to fold.

Bah, guess it's something we'll never see

It's a pity the picture links are broken. This is something I would have done 14 years ago.
