Know Money, Win Money! Scavenger Hunt at C2E2


We like to shake things up here at Know Money, Win Money. As all you Knowbies are aware, we normally go to a place and then ask people questions that are at least tangentially related to both finance and the place we went to.

But this time, when we visited C2E2, a huge Chicago comic-con, we decided to do something a little different. While we did shoot multiple traditional episodes that featured the sort of Know Money, Win Money quiz questions and goofy man-on-the-street hijinx you’ve come to know and love, we also tried something new.

Take a look:

That’s right, we did a scavenger hunt! Specifically, we were looking for the most expensive item at C2E2. And there were a lot of possibilities! Even the churros they were selling were about five times what you would expect.

We kid!

Not really.

But the churros were far from the most expensive thing. There were Dragonball Z statues that you could get in the reasonable $100-$200 range, and there were enormous plushies that you could get for about twice that price. You like porgs from Star Wars? They were present in plushy form. What about a giant Pusheen the cat plushy? Yep, they had that too. How about a plushy of Thanos wielding the Infinity Gauntlet?

Nope. There wasn’t one of those. Sorry.

There were, however, some giant portraits of Batman and other superheroes that would run you a few thousand dollars each if you’re looking to turn your home into some sort of nerdier Louvre. And even pricier than that were big original storyboards.

But none of those things was the most expensive item we found. Do you want to know what the most expensive item was? Do you really want to know?

Then go ahead and watch the video you goof! And we’ll be back with more episodes before you know it!
