The Price is Right is a game show like no other.

Jeopardy requires in-depth knowledge and trivia of many subjects.

Success in Wheel of Fortune demands that contestants can literally fill in the blanks, using incomplete information to solve a puzzle.

The Price is Right is the game for us all. If you know how much aspirin costs, and if you have a bit of luck, you can go far.

One man went further anyone else in the game this week.

A 29-year-old New Jersey man earned a total of $263,000 in cash and prizes from the game show.
