EG is now also showing the "Junior Edition"s of WOF and J! on their coming soon page.

From the illustrations for the WOF games, It appears that the junior version plays with each round starting with every R, S, T, L, N and E (ala the bonus round on TV)!

You can now view the instructions for the J! and WOF card games, as well as the AKA (and Password) board game on EG's website.  Click "New Games," and the specific game you are looking for.

There is no mention of any Daily Doubles in the J! games, and the WOF games seem to be not as good as EG's "Quick Picks" WOF game from sometime back.

AKA looks good!

Target is now carrying redesigned versions of Cardinal's Family Feud "Platinum" edition board, and what is probably, a redesigned/retitled version of EGs "After Hours," edition--called "Late Night" edition.

You'll notice that the games are co-branded by Cardinal and Imagination Gaming.  Steve Harvey's image is shown on the "Platinum" edition now, and it also now features a reusable dry-erase board.

This one flat out asks you to name another word for penis, using the euphemisms they've displayed on the board.

Likely this is the hardest version they had -- no softball questions.

I'm sure they pulled out everything they had for this package.

Last fall, it was reported in Variety, that TBS greenlit a new game show to be titled "The Misery Index," based on a card game called Sh*t Happens, and featuring host Jameela Jamil and star the four members of The Tenderloins comedy troupe, who star in truTV's Impractical Jokers.  The card game is produced by Games Adults Play (GAP), a division of Goliath Games, which also owns Pressman.  The game has also been published under the title, Stuff Happens.

It was recently announced that the show will premiere on TBS, October 22, and the card game is now also called "The Misery Index," and promotes the show on the packaging.  I found a copy in Target the other day, for $17.99!

Here is a preview trailer of the show:

This past weekend, I found a few more interesting items in Target and Walmart.

In Walmart, they had the WOF card game, for only $5.97!  They also had a new Family Feud "Jumbo Card Game" for only $3.97!  The FF game only contains about 45 cards, and is more designed like the new versions shown earlier from Target.  Although there wasn't any copies on the store shelf, I noticed a label for a "Dysfunctional," Family Feud board game, for $14.88!

Walmart had two of three board games, based on segments featured on "The Tonight Show--Starring Jimmy Fallon."  They were Face It Challenge, and Box of Lies.  The third one, not in the store, is Best Friends Challenge.  You can see a promo for the games at this link:

Target had the Face It Challenge game, and also a game based on Carpool Karaoke, featured on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

Updating my earlier post of stuff at Walmart, here are web listings/illustrations of the new Family Feud items:

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Platinum-Edition-Family-Feud-Jumbo-Card-Game-for-Kids-Teens-and-Adults/184853654

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Family-Feud-Quirky-Family-Edition-for-Teens-and-Adults/968566842

You'll notice it is dubbed "Quirky Family Edition," despite the label on the store shelf saying "Dysfunctional."


In recent weeks, I'd seen yet another FF item on a website, and here is a picture of the item (along with other Cardinal products):

https://scontent-lax3-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/63ea06d7fca3afc517323d0fe37a95f1/5DC43205/t51.2885-15/e35/65888264_530993747639722_645558573158798168_n.jpg?_nc_ht=scontent-lax3-1.cdninstagram.com&se=7&ig_cache_key=MjA4NTM2NjAyMTk3NTk5MTQwNg%3D%3D.2&_nc_ig_catcb=1

That is a new repackaged version of Cardinal's original card game, featuring Steve Harvey's picture on it.  I found a copy of the game at a local Family Dollar store for $6!  The also had a similar game based on the Kids vs. Parents card game for the same price.  That, also features Steve Harvey's picture!

This past holiday weekend, I found (or found out about) two new products relating to home games:

First, Deluxe Password from Endless Games.  Dubbed a B&N exclusive, it comes in a similar box, as the new regular version, only featuring a blue colored box, and 2,000 words to play with:

https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/toys-games-password-deluxe/33833913?ean=0632468002519

I also found out B&N will be carrying another surprise, but doesn't have any yet.  Here, however you can order a copy from amazon.com

https://www.amazon.com/100-000-Pyramid-Game/dp/B07NGM7TW2/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=pressman+pyramid&qid=1567555330&s=gateway&sr=8-2

Anyone else take issue with the phrasing of "HOME EDITION with Michael Strahan"?
