Gridlock! is a pricing game that debuted on September 18, 2017 (#8011K), that is played for a car. Contestants must "navigate" mini cars out of a lane of traffic and into an empty lane by correctly giving the price of the vehicle to win.

GameplayEdit

The contestant is shown a series of mini cars and is spotted the first digit in the price with the gray car. Next, they must pick a pair of numbers from one of three blue cars to figure out the 2nd and 3rd numbers in the price. Then, they must pick a second pair of numbers from one of three orange cars to figure out the 4th and 5th numbers to complete the price. If they make a mistake, they get one do-over. If they guess incorrectly a second time, he/she loses the game.
