"Trivia Trap" coming to "TPIR" this fall
The new Pricing Game, Gas Money, will work just like the first two rounds did in the first maingame format of the short-lived game show "Trivia Trap". Here, a car and up to $10,000 are both at stake. Five possible prices are shown, one of which is the ARP of the car. After choosing what he/she believes is the right price for the car, the contestant must eliminate the incorrect prices, one at a time. Every time he/she successfully eliminates a price, he/she wins the cash amount behind that price, which can be either $1,000, $2,000, $3,000 or $4,000. The closer an incorrect price is to the ARP of the car, the more that it's worth (thus, picking the closest price is worth $4,000). The player can stop after any successful elimination, but if he/she chooses the correct price at any time, everything is lost. Eliminating all four wrong prices wins the car and $10,000.
