$25,000 Pyramid Font Question
« on: August 02, 2013, 01:29:16 PM »

I am wondering, what font is used for the $25,000 graphic displayed above the board in the Winner\'s Circle round?

If I\'m not mistaken, it\'s in the Clarendon family of fonts.

I am wondering, JonSea, have you ever done an ounce of original research for any of your vaporware?

I think the http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120207230016/logopedia/images/1/17/10000pyramid.jpg\'>70s version was Clarendon. The http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/3/34/$25,000_Pyramid.jpg\'>80s banner looks different.

For a serious answer, I would think that someone just cut out circles from plywood, painted it blue and stuck a tube light bulb behind it. Ta-da.

And how about the font for a WC win? It was helvetica in the first week. Not sure about the rest of the run. But I know it used the same font as Press Your Luck\'s big board.

After the first week it became Cheltenham, same as the money amounts in the boxes on the board.... the Press Your Luck font you\'re thinking of is Franklin Gothic Extra Condensed, that was used for the category names on the board (in both the front game and the Winner\'s Circle)

Yes, I did.  I tried, but to no avail.  Which is why I came here to ask such question.

The font is \"Suevermeer\"...




It\'s actual name is Souvenir.  The font Cory linked to is a knockoff (since Souvenir is a commercial font) but it\'s close enough for government work.

I just followed Dan\'s lead. Here, here\'s a properly-named knockoff: http://www.fontyukle.net/en/Souvenir+Bold.ttf\'>http://www.fontyukle.net/en/Souvenir+Bold.ttf

On the Chyron, when someone won? You\'re thinking of the original (not ITC or \"Old Style\") cut of http://www.fontshop.com/fonts/singles/bitstream/bookman_std_headline/\'>Bookman, the same face they used for the main game. Press Your Luck used a cut of Caslon, possibly http://www.fonts.com/font/itc/caslon-graphique#product_top\'>Caslon Graphique.

When I mentioned the PYL font, I was also thinking of the score money seen on the WC subjects, after turning them over.
