Well, I think it is safe to say no run of shows on the American version could match what's currently going on in the dream factory, as prime-time contestants didn't see previous games before theirs and the syndicated version's player gallery changed every week. So instead I'll post a game that relates to Jen and Lee's games. In case you didn't see the commentary for Jen's game, I personally was so infuriated at Jen's decision to deal at first that I had a 2012 non-Mad Mark moment and tried to bring the OH DEAR moment back into the forums. Fortunately, I got a much needed early warning for that from hogwild94 that made me realize that Jen's decision wasn't overly-cautious. I'll explain the rest after the episode.


Today's game, per request of practically all readers of last week's game, will definitely be another syndicated game. Beverly Schneider, a paralegal from Rhode Island (my home state :smt023 ) has been selected to play. She swaps her original case #18 for #16. Let's get dealing:

Round 1:

#7- $25
#14- $200
#9- $5
#18- $10
#17- $400

An all blue round.

Banker's offer:

$21,000
No Deal (just in case anyone's wondering, no one dealt the 1st two offers in America though there were several close calls)

Round 2:

#21- $100
#15- $50
#1- $1 (wow, she equalled £5k Matt's record run of 8 blues from the start :shock:)
#10- $10,000 (she has to hit reds/ride side amounts at some point, and that downwards is excellent)
#11- $7,500

Banker's offer:

$33,000
No Deal

Round 3:

#13- $2,500
#19- $300
#4- $75,000
#3- $500

8 case board:
$0.01
$1,000
$5,000
$25,000
$50,000
$100,000
$250,000
$500,000


Wow, this is an amazing board. Based on what I know, she has the second best 8 case board (only topped by a guy who had the power 5 at this point) in the entire syndicated run. Will the offer reflect this extraordinary board?

Banker's offer:

$65,000
:shock: NO DEAL (though she was struggling with it a lot)

Round 4:

#20- $25,000
#6- $5,000

Wow, 4 of the Power 5 with 6 cases left!!!!!!!! :smt119 Since the U.S. banker doesn't make a stigma out of the penny, one can only imagine how large this next offer will be.

Banker's offer:

$96,000
(RECORD 4th OFFER) DEAL!!!!!!!!

I know what you're all thinking now: How could she walk away from that ridiculously strong board? Why didn't she have the guts that the crazy gamblers in the prime-time version did? Well the reality is that $96,000 was clearly a life-changing sum to her and it clearly was good for the board at 64% of the average. In addition, she could easily lose the top two and have the offer relatively crash through the floor. Very similar to the reasons Lee dealt when he did today.

Round 5 (prove-out):

#1- $0.01(She has the exact same board amounts Esher had left at this point :shock: )
#2- $500,000

Wow, that last case saved her from the first $200,000+ prove-out fifth offer.

Banker's offer would've been:

$88,000
:blueponder (I'm tempted to call that over-inflated but I won't based off the previous offer)

Round 6 (prove-out):

#22- $50,000 :shock: (if only Esher visited America in 2009 and saw her game as it has been the exact same as her's since 5 case)

Banker's offer would've been:

$120,000
:smt011 OVER-INFLATED (you'd be crazy and/or a HORRIBLE board reader to decline that)

Round 7 (prove-out)

#8- $100,000

Banker's offer would've been:

$131,000
:smt019 RIDICULOUSLY OVER-INFLATED (NBC Universal was stupid to think people wouldn't notice these ludicrous hypo-offers)

Well, at least based off these offers we had to work with, the $250,000 was completely unattainable today unless you were one of the brain-dead idiots on the prime-time version. But did she make a great Deal?

#16- $1,000 (WOW, very similar to Esher's game)

To prove it: #18- $250,000

She clearly was not a contestant who was willing to go all the way to win the big money. Therefore, she used the board to her advantage to win the mega-money without taking a huge risk. That's exactly what Jen and Lee did, and while both missed out on significantly more, they both made sensible Deals for life-changing money. Just imagine how cautious the dream factory would've been and would be if both of them declined those offers and crashed to a blue like Esher did last fall. :shock:

This game is not about playing to the end. It's about winning a sum of money that you would be very happy with, which is what Jen, Lee and Beverly did. :smt023

$131,000 on a $1,000 / $250,000 final two? There's no way that'd have been offered in live play. I think the real offer would've been somewhat lower, as $131,000 is an AMO (see, the Mad One knows a thing or two about numbers). The UK Banker might've offered somewhere between £80,000 to £100,000 on that final two, or even the Banker's Gamble.

Given what he offered on the only $250,000/peanuts final 2 in live play (as most players didn't have the guts to get that far even with the stingy offers most of them were given :evil: ), the U.S. banker probably would've offered $102,000 on her finish. If there was one thing I hated about the syndicated version of the show, it was it's ridiculously inflated hypo-offers when the $250,000 and/or $500,000 was in play. :smt019
