Per website i4u.com:

https://www.i4u.com/2020/02/133062/2020-toy-fair-endless-games-showcase-new-card-sharks-tv-game-show-game

The box (at least a prototype), indicates that the game is for "ages 14+."  There is no word as to what the game pieces will consist of, but I hope the cards will be of similar design to the ones used on the show, and also feature betting chips (even if only small punch-out cardboard ones) for the money cards.

If you go to Endless Games facebook page, they've responded to inquiries from several people, including myself, and it shows some of the contents, including the game board and questions (on cards!)  They also told me there will be the Money Cards, with betting chips!

Couldn't find it, but gosh, the cover of their catalog. Wow.

Buffalo Games, a company in my neck of the woods, is displaying a table top Plinko game:

I would like to see something next to that for scale. It actually looks like they figured out that it needs to be not small for the chip-drop-effect to work.

Based on the picture in the lower left corner of the box depicting people standing next to the board, it looks like it might be a little under two feet tall?

(wonders if chips can fly out of the board like they would on the real show if the plexiglass cover weren't present)

Or, look off to the right for scale, where you can see the box on the shelf next to Buffalo's pinball and Skee-Ball games they sell at Target. Both of those are fairly large boxes, and I'd say Scott made a pretty good size estimate.

Buffalo Games has posted a short video of Plinko in action. You will want your sound up for it.

Between this and the table(?) Skee-Ball game, Buffalo Games has made the wheels start to turn
This signature is currently under construction.

Endless Games website shows what looks like the box bottom's graphics--The only thing mentioned to be included, but not pictured is the betting chips:

I know suits don't matter in a game of Card Sharks, but maybe rethink that card face art, gang.

Those arenít playing cards, those are question cards.

Check down on the lower right. Isn't that a face-up look at the playing cards?
