Stack the Deck is a game played for a car and with 6 grocery items where 3 match the displayed price.

GameplayEdit

  • The contestant is shown seven different digits (in the style of playing cards), five of which are the digits in the price of a car.
  • The contestant is given an opportunity to "stack the deck" in their favor and receive up to three digits of the car is the price in their correct positions. The contestant is shown three pairs of grocery items, one at a time. Each pair has a price displayed, and the contestant must select the item that correctly corresponds to the price. For each correct answer, the contestant may choose any of the digits in the car's price to be revealed; the corresponding card is then put in its slot.
  • After the three prices have been guessed, the contestant must fill in the remaining slots correctly using the remaining cards to win the car. The car price is then revealed by flipping over the game title.
  • The ideal strategy is to ask for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th digits. Assuming the grocery portion is played perfectly, the game ultimately becomes guessing the thousands' part of the car's price.
