There's a new Family Feud game from Ludia, and it's more of the same, really.

Kind of like Endless Games, really.

Just downloaded this one from the Google Play store for Android... pretty cute game. Manages to capture the spirit of the show well.

Fibbage from Jellyvision Games (The You Don't Know Jack people) is now available on the Xbox One for $7. It's a really fun party game.

to paraphrase a famous GS announcer, "if you would like to play "Countdown" on your iPad.... FORGET IT!!!" 

The company that released the "Countdown", "Strike it lucky", "Bullseye" and "Going for Gold" apps to the UK iTunes store has pulled each and every last one. 

Hopefully someone else with get the rights, assuming it's a rights issue, and sell them again.

Seconded. And since the controller is basically "any web browser you can get your hands on, be it a laptop, desktop, on your phone, whatever" and since the One has Twitch streaming built-in, you can easily find people streaming their games and oftentimes they are good with people jumping in who are watching the streams. Not quite as good of an experience as couch play is (it *shines* at a party) because of the lag, but it works just fine and you can try out the game even if you don't have an X1.

Here's an interesting game. Red Herring. You have 16 answers that you organize into three categories plus one category, the red herrings, that don't fit into the rest. I haven't seen Only Connect, but I suspect it's the same principle as part of that.

I just stumbled across this information at buzzerblog.com:

https://www.facebook.com/41501058492/posts/10152788466618493

It came as no big surprise to me, but I thought maybe Patch Products would've been the manufacturer, since they've been associated with Jeff Foxworthy, with AYSTAFG and You Might Be a Redneck, If...

There are other online retailers who have good deals, and can be found at amazon.com

Would be nice if other original GSN shows get their own board games!

Talicor has a long-established line of religious games, such as the Ungame and, until recently, VeggieTales games and puzzles. I recently visited the main offices and saw a model of the product. Didn't mention anything in case release plans changed. Matt O's game show game site lists several products that never got past the prototype stage. Spotted it last week at Family Christian stores. Talicor is an interesting company that actively pursues educational, general and religious games.

Jackbox Games just game out with a five game pack which includes YDKJ 2015, Fibbage XL, an overhauled Lie Swatter, and two new games- Drawful and Word Spud. They've taken their "any device as a controller" idea from Fibbage and applied it to all games in the pack. All games support multiple players, but Lie Swatter can support up to 99 players, making it a nifty game night game. I think I know what we're doing for our Super Bowl halftime party this year.

The entire pack goes for a measly $25 and can be bought on PS3/4 and Xbox One. YDKJ '15 comes with 50 brand new episodes, so the pack is worth it for that alone- this is a steal.

Without either console, I won't be able to check out this pack anytime soon but I am very curious as to the changes to the overhauled Lie Swatter...

So YDKJ uses the browser-as-controller conceit, too? I would have severe problems with the potential for latency.

Can you quickly run down what the three games that aren't Jack and Fibbage are? I'm not familiar with any of them and we were discussing this at work this morning...

/we are big Fibbage fans at the office

It's also coming out on Steam in the very near future, so PC and Mac users will be good to go.
