Push Over is a game in which the contestant is shown a row of nine numbered blocks, which are comprised of the price of the prize (in order) and other decoy blocks at the beginning and/or end of the price. The last four digits (or five in the case of a five-digit price) are marked by a colored window.

GameplayEdit

  • The contestant must push the blocks until the correct price is showing in the window. If they are correct, they win the prize. Any blocks that are pushed beyond the window fall into a box, permanently out of play, and cannot be recovered. During the game's first playing (and a few others after that), Bob Barker joked that the blocks cannot be retrieved because they "go to China" and even went so far as to look down inside the box and said he saw people eating chow mein.

HistoryEdit

  • When the game first premiered, it received its first win.
  • On its first three playings, the box was red on March 3 (#1043K), March 26 (#1065K), and March 31, 1999 (#1073K) then it becomes yellow on its fourth playing on April 19, 1999 (#1091K).
  • While the window is shaded in blue, on the April Fool's Day 2016 (#7475K) episode, as a joke, it was yellow. The hands were also missing from the logo.
  • On May 3, 2016 (#7522K), the set got a new color scheme, the hands were removed, the squares were rearranged, and an additional curved triangle is installed behind the logo. Because, it was taped out of order, it did not immediately become permanent. On June 10, 2016 (#7575K), the new color scheme became permanent.
  • On January 8, 2019 (#8572K), Dameon McKinzie won an extra $20,000 courtesy of Publishers Clearing House for being the first contestant of the day to win their pricing game. It was played in the second slot.

TriviaEdit

  • The first price shown in the line has never been the correct price.
  • Push Over debuted on the final show with the “puffy” turntable walls.
  • On one episode, the price flap fell open as Bob was describing the game to the contestant, forcing him to award her the prize.
  • The very first numbered block can be any number but a "0".
  • The most number of times this game was played in any season was 38.
  • There are 9 blocks (at least in a playing for a 4 digit game), so there are 6 possible prices when playing for a 4 digit prize. However, since it's highly unlikely a number like 0, 1, 2, or even 3 will be the first digit, there are usually only 2 or 3 of those possible prices that seem likely to be the right one.
  • The falling blocks are audible because Push Over has a microphone inside its box.

International versionsEdit

  • On UK's Bruce's Price is Right, the game was played the same, except the blocks fell down "to Australia". On the 2006 Joe Pasquale UK version, it was played for a three-digit prize, the game had a pirate theme, and the blocks are eaten by a fish once they fall.
