The puzzle board from the Tyco '92 game got it right, better than Pressman's IMO. Used letter board right there on the board (as opposed to flipping through the manual and looking up how many R's are in Puzzle #62), and there's something much more satisfying about the flappy piece of plastic to reveal the letters on the board itself.

It's just wild to me that these have basically been the same since the 80s, short of the smaller puzzle board.
You'd think they'd at the very least stop including "Free Play" tokens.

And is it just me, or is $50 / $100 / $200 / $400 / $1000 bills when everything is either $3500 or $500-900 an incredibly bad system?

I mean, you need $50's regardless of what you do

For the first time, I've seen a listing for such a products at LTD Commodities:

https://www.ltdcommodities.com/images/product/92541_1325311_WEZ_zm.jpg

This might just be a promotional prototype box, so don't be surprised one way or the other.

Yeah, looks like they just took the 4th edition photo and slapped a "5th" on only the box, as the manual still says "4th Edition".

It's just wild to me that these have basically been the same since the 80s, short of the smaller puzzle board.

Wow, even the same play money. I wonder if those have been in print longer than Milton Bradley Bucks were.

How long has the wheel in those editions not had a $5,000 space?

Also when did they finally switch from a crayon to a dry-erase marker for the ULB?

Beat That! Is a game that comes with a bunch of every day items and 160 different physical challenges with said items. If you’re looking for a stand in for Double Dare/Beat The Clock/ Minute to Win It, this looks to be it.
