LOSS

Probably should not have been lost, but it seems your first instinct is always going to be to switch the prices; even LFaTs like me are wired to think that what we see when the doors open is always wrong, because most games don't allow for the correct answer to be in plain sight right off the bat. When in doubt, it's usually a good idea to switch the prices in this game, but not today.

Gotta love Drew doing the Also Sprach Zarathursta deal. Adding a little flair to the ARP reveals is always appreciated. ;^)

And continuing in our impromptu Kubrick theme, Stan cues up a little Blue Danube as the prize cue for Cliff Hangers:

If only she hadn't gone so cheap on those cookie cutters, she might have pulled this off.
