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

No. Question cards. Look at the photos they posted on Facebook.

Dangit, you're gonna make me go on Facebook? Of all the indignities!

(Thanks for clearing that up.)

Like Adam mentioned, I am certain that those black and white cards, shown in the following picture from EG's facebook photos are the question cards and they will be assigned a number in the corners (up to "70"):

I don't know if the question cards will really be that large in size.  They had a lot of prototype games there, which were probably given to those attending the Toy Fair last week.  If you look closely the red and blue backs of the card decks are not the same design, in accordance with each other, and supposedly the actual games are going to have back-side designs similar to the show.

Also, on the page of the local affiliate carrying America Says, a home game is mentioned as in stores and online, though I have seen no evidence of a home game yet.  https://www.wbnx.com/shows/america-says

Has anyone heard if there really is a home version of America Says, or if there will be one later?

I donít recognize the red decks in that picture, but the blue backed ones are Maverick brand cards.

I found an old thumbdrive with a fan-created Wheel of Fortune game from 2006 that's kinda charming. It runs in MS-DOS and is just text, but the application pulls from three Wordpad files for puzzles, wheel configuration, and shopping rooms, so you can customize everything. If you want a copy, PM me here or on some other social media site and I'll send you a link.

If anyone is looking for ways to pass the time, the Internet Archive has a huge library of old DOS games, including many 80s game show adaptations: https://archive.org/details/softwarelibrary_msdos_games

There are versions of Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, Family Feud, Classic Concentration, Super Password, Wipeout, Win Lose or Draw, Hollywood Squares, Now You See It, Card Sharks, Press Your Luck, Double Dare, High Rollers, $100,000 Pyramid and the really awful Price is Right.  There may be more that I haven't found as well.

Endless Games has posted the instruction booklet for Card Sharks, and it's possible there's either a typo, a change in the front game for the home version, or a change in the front game for Season 2 of the show.

If you're referencing what I think you are, I don't believe that's a typo, since that does match the picture of the game board shown here.

Ah, sure enough, it does. Interesting, because the prototype they had at the Toy Fair in February used the 10-card setup.

Looks like they realized that making a gameboard with only one fold in it is cheaper than making one with two.

Many thanks!  Oddly I had a friend who suggested trying video games to help during this time, so this helps there. 

The Super Password game is really addictive and a pretty solid interpretation of the show.  I know an NES version was to come but never made it....all the same, the computer with the keyboard makes it an easier play as you can quickly type out answers. 

OT, but I saw the PC version of Donkey Kong here too....yeesh, I heard you had to adjust the speed as the game on an emulator plays too fast and the first barrel hits you within a second.  Still true. 
Post over.  You may enter your smarmy comebacks here.

If you're in the market for an original Now You See It home game, here's one that's never been opened for, uh, 90 bucks.

I think I'd get this first for $39.99, even though it's terribly discolored.

No, I haven't seen Card Sharks available yet, but I did see in my local Dollar Tree store that EG has released Jeopardy! and WOF card games for $1 in smaller sets.  The J! game is ONLY ONE "episode" worth of material (54 cards), and WOF has 44 puzzle cards and 10 "wheel" cards.
