*** WORLD PREMIERE PRICING GAME ***

Matthew, a laid-back Beach Bum (and a fireman) from Detroit, MI, is the first person
on the planet to play POCKET CHANGE for a Ford Focus ZX4 SE (Std., AC, RWD, Wipers,
AT, Sport #67S, Traction, ALB)(SS)

THE GAME: Staked with 25 cents Matthew has to find the numbers in the price of the car 

by picking the right numbers from a group of six (the correct numbers plus one more).
If he's correct, he gets to pick one of 20 envelopes, each of which have an amount of
virtual change from zero to $2. If he's wrong, Miss Stirling (in this case) will
increase the price of the car by a quarter. After all the picking is done, the amounts
in each envelope are revealed. To win Matthew must collect enough "Pocket Change" to
cover the incredibly low price of the car. Best case scenario: get all four numbers
right without an error.

     Car   In Play  Pick  Envelope Total
1st   .25  012457   1  *  ( 2) .05 $ .30
2nd        0 2457   5  X
      .50           4  X

5th        0 2      0  *  (16) .10   .80   LOSS

INITIAL REACTION: This one might be a bit problematic. For one thing, there may a lot
of picking to do - not unlike 3 STRIKES, and that's time consuming. Matthew plucked
out the card from the first envelope even though Barker told him not to. Oops. The
distribution chart on the set - it seems to be where a "Levi's" tag might be - is
unreadable so we have no idea what amounts are on the board and how many of each for
now (except the zeroes - Bob said there are three of them). Shane's role in the game
was reminicent of Carol Merrill's role in certain car games on Let's Make A Deal - ah,
those were the days. The game play is OK but if time becomes an issue because of it this
might end up becoming the next "Time Is Money".
