'Zackly. What it does is make the front game more susceptible to the whims of chance. Which I suppose in a game of skill makes it easier to win if you're an idiot, but otherwise all players are playing under the same set of rules.

It's simultaneously easier to win and easier to lose.

And this is what Chris was referring to earlier in the thread- main game rule changes donít really count because the rule change applies to you and your opponents.

And I didn't catch that - mea culpa. Apologies for throwing things off track.

How did we all miss the obvious one - TPIR changing the Double Showcase Winner amount needed from $99 to $250?

Also, on Groucho Marx's You Bet Your Life, adding the $5000 number to the bonus round wheel (at first, the contestants chose one number, worth $10,000, and the rest were worth $2000; later, they chose a $10,000 number and a $5000 number).

Right. Which makes it more random.
