Line ‘Em Up is a pricing game that made its debut on The Price is Right on March 10th, 1998.

In the game, the contestant is shown three small prizes, as well as a car. They are given the first and last numbers of the car, but must use the numbers of the small prizes to correctly fill in the middle three numbers of the car. If the first attempt is not successful, they are told how many numbers are right and given a second chance. If they are correct, they win the prizes and the car.

The game continues to be played on the gameshow to this day.
