Noel runs through the Trick or Treat twists, which are: There is a Tree Spirit in the corner of the studio that will come into play at 5-box, and the player will choose one of its eyes - one eye has a treat behind it and if they find it, they get a holiday and an offer after every box; the other eye has a trick behind it and if they find it, the banker will look in their box, but they're guaranteed the swap at 2-box!

Hetty chooses the GREEN eye

Noel pulls it out of the tree and it has the TRICK :(

The RED eye contains the TREAT

Banker time

The Tree Spirit's son comes and takes Hetty's box for the banker to have a look in. The box is returned with the banker's seal on it to show he's looked in it!

Noel reminds us that Hetty's guaranteed the SWAP at 2-box, as part of finding the Trick.

The banker says he's being honest, and says Hetty has £1,000 in her box.

Banker's offer:

£3,000

Noel wonders why the banker would buy a £1,000 for £3,000. Bryan reckons that Hetty has a higher amount in it. The banker phones back and says he lied - Hetty actually has £20,000 in her box.

NEW OFFER

Banker's offer:

£8,500

The Banker is a bit like Wikipedia, doesn't always tell the truth!

And here come the mind games

Noel says what a BANKER he is, as he lied both times! :lol: The banker says so what?! He says he's telling the truth this time, and that Hetty has £15,000 in her box.

Banker's offer:

SWAP


There's no money on offer!

Noel's about to open Hetty's box when the banker phones. He says he admits that actually she has £3,000 in her box and he's offering the swap again!

Banker's offer:

SWAP

All the other contestants rush over to congratulate Hetty.

Box 20 with Damian contains the £3,000

Hetty says she's going to Vegas with the money!

So, how do you react to that?

Top irony with Box 4 on the table, for a start, and it's an 80-year-old widow. Interpret both of these as you will; she worked for a local council, historically a source of low pay for women, but she's worked well after claiming her pension. Her financial situation is left resolutely unclear; her ambitions suggest she might be reactive to board stability, prepared to play on if she can fall back upon holiday money, but not if she can't.

Four blues and £75,000 is a good start; that three of these are very low blues might just be relevant today. The Banker doesn't bother with the pretence of a 17-box cash offer; Hetty is one of those who'll take the box she's given, no matter what.

Second round also offers one, and only one, significant hit, although £5,000 may have been a useful fallback, falling squarely into luxury-holiday-value territory. Or possibly not; £9,000 is deemed enough only for one holiday for Hetty. The only holiday I've ever funded myself cost about 10% of that.

Again, precisely one big hit in the round. Alas, it was the jackpot. Still, the £100,000 is backed up by a block of four five-figure amounts, so I'd hesitate to call this board any worse than 'average'. It's a stick; Hetty has bigger plans, and she can chase them on this board without too much concern.

Crikey, that's the fourth consecutive round with exactly one big hit! I'm reminded of someone's signature quote of "what is the probability of any game exactly following statistical probability?", or similar. Anyway, it's a fascinating configuration; two blues, two oranges, the £10k-£20k block, and the £100k. Mean is a little short of £20k; the offer ought to be nudged the other side of ten grand, but with the ADP now at five-box, we'll get a stick. Told you. Brilliant spot to point out that there's a holiday in the offing if the five-box twist goes her way; did we ever see what Christopher won? It puts him above the other £100k winners on the Hall of Fame, strictly speaking, and possibly above Graeme to be the second biggest male winner of all time, although having said that, at least one player never got her holiday prize.

Anyway, Hetty dutifully goes on to the Adjusted ADP, and hilariously pulls off the £100k/blue/blue round. The first all-red final five in the history of the game without a Power 5 amount in it, although I think there was a £50k-high all-red final five in Kath's game, at the end of the week of three 11-box Deals. The Trick, frankly, does very little damage, apart from denying Hetty a holiday. We get a joke, then a revision, all in the cause of psychology. Kath can have a nice short break for £1,000, so it's worth playing on, and she does, and after £1k and £20k got mentioned, we actually get a £3k/£15k finish.

And with the final swap offer, we have a new record - smallest offer variance in DoND history. Ignoring the £3,000, we had three offers of £9,000, and one of £8,500. That's a record that looks as impregnable as Brenda's for best 9-box board ever. The producer knows she won't swap, the outcome is known... and it's a good one!

Note also that Hetty confirmed that £3,000 was good for a holiday after all; I suspect that another day, where the boxes turned out differently, she'd have played on until an absolute disaster scenario was clear.

Good result for Hetty, another determined character who wasn't swayed by the banker's attempts. Kept Noel in check as well, who's sometimes, shall we say, a little overexcitable! :P :)

Think that was the first time that no offer was made at all at 2-box, as the swap was guaranteed already. He also offered multiple swaps in a row, which is a common theme in the European versions.

Someone will have to teach him that, like in poker, it's better to keep to one story if you want to bluff than constantly changing your message, as you give too much away. May as well just pretend to look in the box, and play mind games without having any of the added risk of giving information away!

One more thing: was watching in HD, and had a good view of the "tree spirit's son's" face, who collected the box and brought it back resealed; think that was Glenn Hugill in disguise. Here's a pic, along with Glen 9 years ago:

Image on right from UKGameShows.com

Looked on 4oD for a screenshot, but the quality is too low to show his face and even in the low res pic, there's a resemblance, and looks more persuasive when played on the telly. If you've recorded the show, you can see him around 35 minutes in. I tend to watch the show on 4HD as I notice a small improvement in picture quality which may help in this case, though the show itself isn't filmed in HD (thanks for the info travis P).

What do you think? Is that him, or just a coincidence? :ponder:

Edit: Added man in costume pic for comparison, edited HD advice.
