The Price Is Right Wiki

More or Less, the game of High & Low with small prizes seen on certain pricing games, is now its own pricing game. It is like Golden Road except that in this game contestants can win up to 4 prizes instead of 3, consisting of three regular prizes (generally worth between $500 and $4,000 each) and one brand new car.

Gameplay[]

At the start of the game, the contestant is shown a wrong price for the first prize and is asked to guess whether its actual price is "more" (higher) or "less" (lower) than the one displayed. If correct, the contestant wins that prize. This is repeated for the subsequent prizes, including the car. If the contestant stumbles once at any point, it's game over with no prices revealed after, but the contestant gets to keep any of the prizes won up to that point.

History[]

  • More or Less was the last pricing game to premiere during Bob Barker's tenure as host of the show. The game was created by Barker himself.
  • Contestant Sharon won all 4 prizes on the 2nd playing of this game from February 21, 2007 (#3893K) and it was the only time that it happened during Bob's tenure. All the other wins occurred after Drew Carey took over.
  • Under Bob's tenure, after Rich Fields announces the first three prizes, it would cut to Bob talking with the contestant, and after that, the car was described. But, in the Carey era, the announcer will describe all four prizes at once, including the car.
  • On February 19, 2016 (#7415K, aired out of order on February 16), during Dream Car Week, a Maserati was offered. During that playing, contestant Desiree Lopez lost on the second prize.
  • More or Less has officially received 32 wins over the years. Its most recent win happened on January 14, 2022 (#9675K).
  • As of June 1, 2018 (#8365K), it has been lost on the first prize 16 times, meaning the contestant won absolutely nothing, cuing the losing horns.
  • On April 12, 2018 (#8294K), contestant Vanessa Sam won the showcase despite wiping out of this pricing game on the first prize.

Trivia[]

  • As with Golden Road, the contestant is allowed to keep playing as long as they guess correctly and keep the prizes they've already won if they lost the game, except Golden Road has you choose which of 2, 3, or 4 is the correct number for the prize; in this game, you have a 50-50 chance to win up to 4 prizes.
  • Like Magic Number and Gas Money, this game has never been the first pricing game to start any show. Because the electronic component of the game needs time to start up, the game can be played no earlier than second on the show, (No less than one commercial break).
  • The most number of times this game was played in any season was 16.
  • The game is similar in concept with Triple Play, Line 'Em Up, Five Price Tags and That's Too Much! It’s also similar to Golden Road, but played a lot differently as it has nothing to do with a missing digit.
  • A pink card is used to indicate More, while a yellow card is used to indicate Less. Two blue cards are also used to indicate both opposites. More is always written in yellow, and Less is always written in pink. In case of a game where three of, or all the prizes are one opposite, another set was created with all four different cards. There is a slight difference; the colors have a brighter shine. Based on whether each prize’s ARP is more or less, all eight cards are drawn at random for each prize. If the card has the wrong opposite for a prize, the cards are reshuffled and drawn from again. This makes it possible to have a game where all four blue cards are used, if two of the prizes are more, and the other two are less, although it hasn’t happened before.
  • The contestant has a 1/16, or 6.25%, chance to win the car.
