Pressman and Kohl's are doing it again, this time with the new Wheel of Fortune 5th edition board game.  Like they did the last three holiday seasons, they've added 50 more puzzles to this version  and the price I saw was a reasonable $19.99.   Past years it was a lot more!

Today, while in my local Dollar Tree store, I'd seen from Spin Master Games a Deal or No Deal Card Game and Family Feud Survey Showdown Card Game, selling for $1 each.  The DOND card game is like the "Jumbo" card game I'd seen earlier at Walmart, only smaller in size, while the FF card game is much like the earlier versions, with only 49 question cards, but same "strikeout" format.

Well, here's something unique if you're handy with a scissors: Endless has posted a PDF of the poker chips for Card Sharks.

When I mentioned that I saw the new Plinko game at Target a short while back--which was new news to me, at least--someone here replied that it was already covered here earlier and that there were flaws in it.  With 47 pages here I don't have time to try and hunt that part of the thread down so could you please tell me what is so bad about the home Plinko game?

Depending on the luck of the draw in manufacturing, one's Plinko board could be seamless, OR, have a big gap that causes chips to fly off the board. The one I bought was minorly flawed in that way, but easily remedied by putting card stock behind the arm that holds up the board. I just kept putting in tiny pieces of index card until the two halves were even, and chips stopped flying off the board.

Basically, the board is in two pieces, and they don't line up correctly, and that makes the chips fly off the board and onto the table.

You know what...if every other member has had the "Time" to look for old threads and answers about a HOBBY- so do you. You are just as grown as everyone else on the board and you know how to use a search bar. Enough with the excuses.

I highly recommend using the search bar up top and filtering your results so that it only shows replies from this thread. It only takes a few seconds and will save you from replies like the one above.

There's a new Family Feud 2021 game out for Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and PS4 - and it's rather good!

Developed by Snap Finger Click (many former team members of the Buzz games for PlayStation) and published by Ubisoft, this is the general polish I've been looking for in a game show game. All the board graphics and typefaces are correct, there's an attention to detail, and the host (a fictional Lucky McCoy) has fully recorded dialog including all game questions and answers and will even add in personal quips for some surveys. Developer is working on a patch to round out a couple of graphics issues, but I'm extremely impressed. There's even a "live stream" mode where you can have your streaming audience guess with you, or you can fill in your own surveys that people respond to on chat.

Here's a video from a Developer Stream of the game: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/800749084
