Bryan with box 3 contains the £250

Noel says that Steve was right about box 3 containing the 250, but is was just the wrong 250 :lol: Steve says he has had a fantastic time and he will be able to do a lot with the money.

A good OPW on this one :)

Connor is too young to join the forum, let alone play the game, but that's a very interesting idea. I can see myself doing similar at age 12.

On a day where the Government declared war on welfare claimants, today's contestant is a whistleblower. :D More relevantly, he has a family story that reminds us all of just how quickly anyone can become disabled, and I will leave you to interpret the politics to taste. We're here for the game.

Have we seen the yellow and red cards since h2005's memorable Finders Keepers minigame within his episode?

Good bit of comedy relating to Pat's box-opening technique, lightening up a somewhat dodgy opening round. Crikey, that's almost dealable. Almost.

Is that the first time the phone has ever been used to contact a viewer? If only this show was live, they could have done a proper 'play Deal or No Deal at home' phone-in competition that way... anyway, improved second round, after a striking first offer, and... it still goes up, by just about enough to not look wrong.

Ten grand goes. Do we really need two low blues now, Noel? Surely that's not what you want, it might mean a third-offer Deal. ;) Top irony with the next box being £750; fifty grand, now that is a worry on this board, top two completely exposed, and ten grand is a genuine decision on this board. I fancy quite a few more people would take this but for the stigma of doing so. Excellent balanced advice from Bryan, though I might have emphasised the high probability of this being a one-box game at eight-box.

Oh god, he says he's here for the big money. Well with the round survived, we're about to see if he is as aggressive as that implies. The offer only goes up five grand, and he takes it. No, he wasn't, and frankly he should have gone last time (and yes, I know he'd have won £5,000 less if he had, but it's pretty irrational play to stop there after playing on at eight-box).

Having said that, the fact that the Banker promised to lowball the offer on a one-box game makes that slightly more justifiable (though I'd still have played on). It also means that the Banker has removed the opportunity for a proveout lie on a £250k-and-rubbish five-box.

Which, of course, we duly get. When was the last honest proveout offer with sizable money intact, anyway? I genuinely can't think of a recent one.

Well that's one way to secure the OPW. Shut me up.

A Banker Spanking - not quite to the extent of Alex's victory but good enough for me.

On a slight sidebar, who was that alongside Fadi in the Halloween teaser? Is she even on the wings? I didn't recognise her and i don't think it's because she was dressed as a tree

If I was offered a miniature replica box, the last thing I'd want would be for the crew to scribble all over it.

Why are people faffing around with miniature replicas of boxes, when they could have the real thing?

A strange game. Noel suddenly transporting back 30 years and talking to young kids on the phone... the banker not inflating a proveout offer...... and a sensible OPW to boot.

That was surprsingly reminiscent of Alex from early 2008 who got absolutely (unjustifiably IMO) lambasted for dealing £100 less on a similar board but without the two oranges. And the banker made a similar threat if he took out one of the biggies before 5-box. Only difference was Steve proclaimed to be a gambler, whereas Alex was a student, so it was hardly surprising for Alex, but I have to say I was rather disappointed when Steve dealt as it would have been exciting from then on if he'd no-dealt. But I liked Steve so was pleased he got away with it, but I'd love to know what tyhe 5-box offer would have been if he kept both biggies in (£68k perhaps)? ;-)

I didn't see Alex's game back then but it sounded like an absolute low point for the show - he was basically blackmailed into dealing, then given an utterly ridiculously inflated proveout offer - even Doreen would've been lucky to get that!

For today's show, the £15k offer seemed low for the board initially but with the top 2 exposed like that it's worth at least considering - the big difference being that in Alex's game, having an all-blue round looked like a strong possibility with a good offer to follow (not as high as £68k though!), whereas Steve could have hit £3k and even with 2 blues, there could have been the feeling the round could have been better, which the banker could have played on when pitching the offer.
