  1. Did anyone watch Tuesday nights show?! I was watching this old giffer on a losing streak with £75,000 maximum winnings, and he wasnt doing reet good. So I left the house to go catch my bus and walked past a TV shop... and Deal or no Deal was on, and the afforementioned giffer was jumping up and down celebratory stylee.

    DID HE WIN THE £75,000 ?!?!?!?!!?!?!?

    I watched it! What you heard was pretty much it - he's played lots of instruments, and used to be in a brass band (cornet, flugal, tenor horn...then he said violin!).

    How good was it yesterday though?!!

    But i have to ask would we ever see that...? The best chance of being made the biggest offer is if you have £250k and £100k boxes left. If you were there, and were offered say £160k - would you 'No deal' and risk it?

    Personally... I'd take the £160K.

    I'm not sure anyone would 'No deal' on that offer.

    I've thought about it a lot, would I "no deal" on the £100k/£250k split with an offer of £160k or similar. I think I would. £100k is serious money, about 5 years wages and would almost buy me a house. So I'd not sneeze at that amount of money, even with the £160k tempter.

    As Kirsty mentioned on Tuesday if you can live with the fact you only £100k then No Deal if you can't then Deal

    Personally I'd have dealt a long time earlier...........

    I think that if I managed to get to the final with the 100k and 250k still in play, I'd just go for it and take the risk - because it's such an unlikely situation to be in!

    But I know that I would probably deal a lot sooner, so wouldn't get that far into the game anyway!

    But that's exactly what she did do. She was left with 75 or 250K, was offered 125K and decided to go on because she said she could live with leaving with 75, so it was worth the risk.

    If it were me, I'd have taken the 125K. After that, 75 doesn't sound so good... albeit considerably better than the state of my account at the moment!

    Yes, I would have taken the £125k. I think it has a lot to do with age too, look at the guy yesterday, (day before actually), who took 8 and a bit (I was doing tea at the time, so can't remember exact amount or name of guy) when he could have gambled one or two more deals. However, he was not a young guy, and 8k+ was beter for him than the game going pear shaped (like they sometimes do).

    Do you know, this is the first time for many years that I have actually made a point of scheduling my day to fit in with a TV programme :eek:

    Thank you God!! :) Tho has anyone found an english version?

    Anyone know if they have any plans to make an interactive DVD game type thing of the game show? I reckon it would go down really well, and preferably can they do it before August because it would be the perfect birthday present for my dad!
