We had a game like that when we were young and poor, and there used to be such a thing as “the dented/unlabeled can rack” that was full of mystery cans priced @ like 10 cents each. We’d clear that sucker all the way out. If it was your turn to cook dinner, you got to grab 3 cans out of the mystery shelf, and you had to base the meal around those. If you got beans, corn, and soup, you were pretty lucky; if you got peaches, tuna, and pickles, it was much harder. Oh, and we didn’t have a “fully stocked pantry” either, just lots of boxes from the generic aisle w/ b&w labels that said RICE, CORN, CEREAL, etc. I remember when this first came out, I wondered which dinner guest owed me royalties for stealing my old lifestyle!
