Freeze Frame is a game played for a prize that's less than $10,000. The game board features a ring of eight tiles, each with a two-digit number. A frame encloses two of the tiles at the top of the ring, which form a four-digit price.

GameplayEdit

  • For the game, the ring incrementally rotates one tile clockwise, each time stopping so that a different price appears in the frame. In keeping with the title of the game, this is usually accompanied with a "camera click" sound effect. To win the prize, the contestant must pull a lever to stop the ring from moving while the correct price of the prize is shown in the frame.
  • There are 8 possible price combinations in the game, but as with many other pricing games, usually only 2 or 3 of them are a realistic price for the prize being offered, which narrows the selection down.

TriviaEdit

  • While the reveal is by magic, the reveal has malfunctioned three times on April 6, 1995, April 11, 1995, and November 25, 1997; former producer Roger Dobkowitz came by on both instances to fix the problem, and the reveal was handled manually. The one from April 11, 1995 was won.
  • Freeze Frame is the last pricing game to offer a 4-digit car. A Ford Aspire worth $9,630 was offered on January 24, 1996.
  • The most number of times this game was played in any season was 33.
