At the end of the day, you've got to get on with it really. No, this isn't a rambling post, but do you try and stay positive when you have such luck?

When will this horrendous run of luck end? Val was an interesting enough contestant, but yet again the boxes didn't go in the player's favour. After hitting the £250k and £75k in the first round, it was going to be hard to recover to a decent offer. I don't blame her for taking £1,500 in the current climate, or indeed anytime because it was a fair offer for the board - but even that turned out to be the worst thing to do!

So far this season, we haven't been able to see if the attitudes have changed, in fact they've hardly had a decision to make offer-wise. Let's hope for a better game and more testing offers tomorrow, and avoid this week becoming the worst ever please!

Wow, three craptacular shows in a row now? This must be some kind of record, and if it's not, then it's pretty darn close to one. But as always, I remain confident that better times lie ahead. We'll see a big winner soon; I'm sure of it. And everyone seems to be right about the sob stories. Enough with them already. They make what should be a fun show to watch depressing and boring.

At least she only dealt after all the life-changing money had gone and didn't bullsh*t about being a gambler. :)

I found the deal a little odd as she essentially had the second-best round possible from 5-box (let's face it, the 3 remaining blues were inter-changeable), and the offer only went up from £950 to £1,500, amounts which essentially would hardly be any different to me, so I thought she would go for it on the basis of having turned down the £950. At least the offers were fair for the board today, but still they never reached anything particularly wonderful.

I fear for whoever gets a good board is going to deal becuase they're just so rare they'll think the luck can't last, even though we all want them to go for it, and then I fear for the forum's sanity. :shock:

Yet again another game full of bad luck. Val was nice enough, though I felt it was worth taking a gamble at the end to try and win £5,000, but then I guess with all the luck (or lack of) in the Dream Factory at the moment a deal seemed the safest option.

Hopefully we can get a big money game tommorow and finally get season 4 off to a good start.

I don't see anything wrong with her taking the Deal, after the luck she had, it was quite understandable. She was a nice lady as well.

But we do need a nice big win or an OPW soon, preferably today.

Something of a cruel game, the board wasn't as harsh as it was for Nikki the day before perhaps but still proved rather relentless. Val came across as a pleasant enough charector, though not especially memorable, and she deserved better luck.

Oh well, maybe today will be better

It's great having you here Wendy with the gossip. I thought Val was a brill character but what a shame she didn't go on. But as I have said before you have to think about the person and what that money would mean to them in their situation. Whereas she could have had a good cry, she showed great dignity and Nikki did too to be fair, just saw her at the end breaking down at the credits. You all deserved a good drink you really did.

Tell you what Tricky, there are some good games coming up, but not neccessarily for the outcomes (if you know what I mean).
