Next Premiered Pricing Game
is the simplest pricing game of all and the last of the three played on the premiere show.
The contestant is faced with two prices, one of which is the right price. Choose the right price, win the prize.
For a time in Dennis James' version, the game was played with two prizes. So in effect that version was called "Double Double Prices".
Double Prices becomes the very first pricing game to be lost on its first playing but got its very first win the next day.
Overall, Double Prices has been played more times than any other pricing game.
Foreign versions of Double Prices Edit
The game is played the same way in other parts of the world, with the only notable difference being the game's name:
Mexico: "Con Melon o Con Sandia?" (With Canteloupe or With Watermelon?, players chose the price by saying the name of the melon attached to the price rather than the price itself.)
United Kingdom: "Double Price Tags" (at least during Bruce Forsyth's run)
Australia: "Two Price Tags" (at least during Larry Emdur's runs)
1st Look A Edit
The very first playing of Double Prices.
Is the price of the Whirlpool $485 or $319? (Note the brown colored prop with only two shelves that show the ARP behind a flap and one of two possible prices and a magnetic cling to hang the price tag underneath the one above it)
Contestant Elaine choose $485.
1st Look B Edit
Another playing, also from the first week. In particular, this is from September 5, 1972 and is featured on Disc 1 of the DVD set.
Is the price of the Argus camera $410 or $350?
The contestant selected $410...
1st Look C Edit
Good Lord! We're playing Double Prices for 2 prizes. So I guess you could say... "This is Double Double Prices!"
Which of these two prices is the price of the prize?
Sometimes, when that prop turned green, the 1 Right Price prop was used with the somewhat useless question mark.
The somewhat revamped green prop, now with three shelves and no question mark.
Here's a playing from the 80s
Which of these two prices is the price of the prize? (In the 80s, both this and 1 Right Price carried these blue podiums, again with three price tag shelves for this game)
4th Look A Edit
Here's a playing from Bob's last show with dark hair with the now familiar prop.
$3262 is the right price but the contestant chose wrong.
4th Look B Edit
Here's one from the 2000s with the modified logo.
$3499 is the right price and the contestant chose right.
