Great Idea, So I Hope TVLubber (Nick Casiano) and Myself (athleticsfan08 - Jay Jianoran) will also write this episode along with ThisIsJeopardy and others.
So Here Are The Ground Rules
1. We are still using the 1987-1989 Sale of the Century Theme
2. The Fame Game Board was reverted "famous faces" sub-game, where he/she got to choose randomly from a game board with nine squares featuring the faces of celebrities, mostly performers on the network's shows as for the center space instead of the 'home viewer' it will be a personality from a Local NBC Station that carries Sale of the Century
Here's Some Suggestions that we will see (to make it historically accurate): Jerry Springer (WLWT - Cincinnati), Dan O'Rourke (KPRC - Houston), Randy Shaw (KHQ - Spokane), Ron Magers (WMAQ - Chicago)
3. We are still playing the Winners Big Money Game in the Bonus Round
Now here's what to come later on
April or May 1989 - Winners Big Money Game will be gone and will be reverted back to the Winners Board in addition the Growing Jackpot will now start at $50,000 and increases $2,000 if not won until hit.
Late June/July 1989 - Theme Music will be changed to the Australian 1986-1988 Theme music by Jack Grimsley arranged by Alan Deak
September 1989 - New Changes will take place
1. A 30-second mid-show 'fast money' is introduced
2. A $20 bonus space is added to the 'fame game'
3. An audio question is introduced, the question relates to the sound clip/effect that is played to the contestants. In the 1990's, this is changed to a visual question, relating to a picture shown to contestants
4. Instant Cash will be replaced with Cash Cards (Rules same as the Australian Version, but still with a growing jackpot)
5. New Theme Music Re-recording by Tweed Harris will be used
And there will be more of this as we go on.
