I figured that it wasn’t exact nor would you buy them for quiz bowl practice (buy the Trebisky octopus for that) but for a game that has buzzer races use them.

There’s a board game at Target called “Just One” that uses the same premise as the Odd Ball pilot (panel gives one word clues to a word/subject, but repeats are discarded before the words are revealed to the guesser). It goes for about $20.
I complain about some stuff, I praise other stuff, and I say "meh" to the rest...see it all at notableneurons.com

That's mildly irritating in that I buy these games as an early adopter and then they end up at Target. That said please support your friendly local board game designers and buy good games.

Right? Making Spiel des Jahres-winning games available to a mass audience is simply *awful*.

I think he means that the prices get cut once they go to department stores, but I understand your sentiment.

I am still utterly failing to see a problem with that.
