One of the more lesser liked games in the show's current rotation and premiered to celebrate the show's ceremonial 4,000th episode (in reality, it's the 3,992nd).


  • The contestant is shown the price of a prize, with one digit missing. Three possible digits are shown, and the contestant picks one. If the contestant is correct, they win the prize.

History and behind the scenesEdit

  • On its first playing, on the ceremonial 4,000th episode (in reality, 3,992nd) aired on January 31, 1992 (#8285D), the game was won.
  • Pick-a-Number has been played for a four-digit car at least once in the game's history, during the time when such cars were still being offered on the show.
  • Pick-a-Number can theoretically be (and has been) played with a 5-digit price, as the dollar sign on the board can be replaced by a digit. However, because of how the prop is built, the ten-thousands digit could not be the missing number.
  • In concept, this game is similar to foreign version of Squeeze Play, where a contestant pulls two numbers off the prize of a product. In Pick-a-Number, a contestant simply puts in the correct number from a supply of three numbers.


  • The most number of times this game was played in any season was 28.
