Time for Wiki Wednesday.

You know - you go to *Wikipedia*, you click on "random article," you report on the outcome.

Here's my random **Wiki Wednesday** find for this week:

Stack the Deck is a pricing game on The Price Is Right. Debuting on October 9, 2006, it is played for a car, and the set pieces have a card game theme, hence the name.

The contestant is shown seven numbered cards for a car with a five-digit price. The contestant must choose the digits in the price of the car in order. However, before picking numbers, the contestant is given an opportunity to "stack the deck" in his favor and be given up to three numbers in their correct positions.

The contestant is shown a pair of grocery items and a price, and must choose which product matches that price (a la 1 Right Price). If successful, the contestant may choose any number in the price of the car to be revealed. There are three pairs of items, so up to three numbers may be revealed.

After the three prices have been guessed, the contestant fills in the remaining slots using the remaining cards. Once all five digits in the car price are guessed, the correct price is revealed; if all of the digits are right, the contestant wins the car. Otherwise, s/he loses.

And please, have your pets stacked or neutered.
