Spoiler: Case #17

WOOOOOW! WOOOW! WOW! That's a spectacular start!


Case 19, open the case.

Spoiler: Case #19
$300

(cheers)

Great!


What do we have for numbah five?

Spoiler: Case #5
$5,000

(applauses)

That's good!


Case 13, better be lucky! Open the case...

Spoiler: Case #5
$100,000

Well, not the best but not the worst!


Moving on to case #1. Open the case...

Spoiler: Case #1
$400

(cheers)

Awesome!


Finally Case 25. Open the case...

Spoiler: Case #25

(applauses)

Well, could have been worse.

Overall, not bad for an opening round, eliminating 3 right sides and 3 left sides, including that penny off the bat!


(Phone Rings...)

And here's StrangerCoug coming up with your first offer. If you say No Deal, you will have to open 5 more cases. And remember that this is the new Deal or No Deal. You may at one point issue a Counter-Offer to the bank, which if he takes it, that's a done deal. But if the Banker says No Deal, all the money goes off the board and the game is forced to continue. Now, let's hear from our banker...

Ring ring, ring ring, ring ring... Pick up your phone...

Yes, I'm going to annoy you with that all game because I am a mean kitty. Welcome back to the MID-2010s! :twisted:

Anyway, I've got my laptop open, and I've been doing some number-crunching here about what I should offer you. You were a little hit and miss as far as getting low values go, but the penny right off the bat is impressive. I'm going to be nice this once and offer a little bit more than it says I should give you: $25,000.

Deal or no deal?

Alright! Keep going with 5 cases. Starting with #4. Open the case...

Spoiler: Case #4
$200

(cheers)

Nice!


Number 8, show us something low!

Spoiler: Case #8
$750,000

(groans)

There goes a big one.


Moving on with case 15. Open the case...

Spoiler: Case #15
$1,000

Much better!


Case 16, show us a dollar!

Spoiler: Case $16
$750

(cheers)

We'll take that!


Case 23, open the case...

You took a hit, eliminating $200,000 and $750,000. But this is still pretty early in the game, and who knows, your case might have more than a hundred-grand.


(Phone Rings...)

Banker's offer incoming. If you say No Deal, you will have to open 4 more cases. The Counter-Offer option is also available. I think I know what he's going to say...

You were saying? I saw you open two six-digit cases :P

But the other three were all $1,000 or less. That's not bad. I think that deserves an award of sorts, don't you think?

And that award is... a higher offer. How does $36,000 sound to you?

Deal or no deal?

(applauses)

That's a generosity from the Banker right there. Let's see if he'll be even more generous... or you crash and burn. Hopefully you don't.

Coming along with 4 cases to open. Let's see what's behind case number 2. Open the case...

Spoiler: Case #2
$5

(cheers)

Awesome!


Can we see what's in number 9, please.

Spoiler: Case #9
$10,000

(applause)

That's a good one.


Case #21, don't let us down. Open the case...

Spoiler: Case #21
$1

(cheers)

That's a great streak!


Finally, at the end of the line, case number 26, open the case...

Spoiler: Case #26
$25,000

(applauses)

A nice finish!

We have a nice round here. The highest amount you eliminated was $25,000! That's going to pull your offer up a bit. However, as we see the board right now, the number of big moneys and the short-changes are almost the same, so you need to consider about the risk you're taking as well.


(Phone Rings...)

I sometimes think I need to fix the phone after this.

(few laughs)

Third offer coming from the Banker. If you say No Deal, you will have to open 3 more cases. Remember, you can still Counter-Offer if you want to. Here we go...

You impress me, Xalxe. I'm scared a bit here. Perhaps as much as you are.

Fortunes can quite easily change in one of our favors here, so I want you to think long and hard about this offer: $71,000.

Deal or no deal?

Now see, I knew we were friends, SC. That's a lovely offer, and I'll be honest, I'm very tempted to accept. Unfortunately, I am a betting man, so I think I'll be going another round. No Deal

Open 11, 3 and 7.

Nice gambling spirit here! Let's see if it pays off. Three cases. First we open case 11. Open the case...

Grrreat!


Then we have number 3. Open the case...

Even better! Can we see a 3 out of 3?


Case 7, better be a small number. Open the case...

I think the Banker has something to think. Xalxe, take a look at this offer carefully. If you say No Deal, you will have to open 2 more cases. The Counter-Offer option can also work well if you feel like it. Also, we should try to answer the phone fast before we get copystrike.

*the ringtone gets changed again to something even MORE annoying, so much so that it's better to leave it to Xalxe's imagination*

A gambling man, you say, Xalxe? Well now, you don't want to be pressing your luck too far in this game. This show, too, has consequences for those who take it too far ;)

Speaking of Press Your Luck, remember that guy Michael Larson? Well... I'm going to offer you more money than he got with how far he dared to press his luck: your first six-digit offer is for $139,000!

Deal or No Deal?

Case 6, please be small. Open the case...

Wow! Good streak!


What about case number 10? Open the case...

Xalxe, from now on, you're entering the point where we open one case at a time before each deal. Each case you open from now on will affect the deal quite a lot. The Counter-Offer is still there to use. And now, here's your fourth offer from the Banker...

*unspeakably annoying ringtone*

You got a LITTLE bit too cocky, Xalxe. I have a number here my calculations say I should offer you, but I don't think it accurately reflects the price of your greed. So instead, I'm going to ignore what my little formula says and offer you only $120,000. Still leaves you with most of your dignity since you also took out one of the lower amounts.

...Yep. As you know, it got worse. And it's not looking pretty for you.

You've now lost a digit in the offers you're getting from me: $71,000. Which means to hell with inflation, Michael Larson would still have you beat.

Another $22,000, you say?

Well, it's a pretty swingy stage of the game right now, and you know I really don't want to see you open the $10 so I'd have to raise my offer considerably.

It's a done deal. Enjoy your money. I've kept the banker's seat warm for you when we change places.
