You can now also get a peek at the rules, which are the same as the original board game:

Looks like the UK is getting set to release new versions of a couple of favorites - https://toyworldmag.co.uk/john-adams-to-launch-new-board-games-for-the-cube-and-lingo/

You can get a peek at those and other games now at:

The LINGO game looks neat in how you drop these different colored, transparent tiles down the board, for letter status.

Apparently this is a thing.  Bullseye (UK) coming to Switch next week this Thursday, June 17th.  Yours for the low, low, $ale of the Century price of $/£12.99.  Looks like your usual Switch shovelware.

Bullseye (UK 80s game show) coming to Nintendo Switch

I tried copying the release and the upcoming website.  But my tablet would not let me copy and paste.  But Bullseye (UK) is coming to Nintendo Switch and according to Wink's fb page, apparently it will be available in the US as well.

This is also mentioned under the long-running Home Games/Video Games thread. Mods, can it be moved there?

I spent $13 + tax on Bullseye for the Switch so you don't have to.  I streamed my games on Twitch:  https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1059323513  I knew going in that this was going to be a flaming bag of dog feces.  I just didn't think the bag would hold 30 gallons of waste.

You can't change your player name.  The game doesn't keep track of high scores.  And you can see how I broke the game during my 3rd playing.  Enjoy?

So it was full of bull feces instead?

Watching that makes me miss the version that was on WeDigTV a decade ago, and that one was free.

That dartboard wouldn't look out of place on a Nintendo 64.

I think I've seen more faithful adaptations on the ZX Spectrum.  Pass.

The term you're looking for is "bull pucky".

Walmart's website is now offering the new Disney themed Family Feud game for online purchase and shipping to your home.  It will probably turn up in stores very soon.  You will notice that the game includes a little card holder with Mickey Mouse ears:

Kohl's has the Card Sharks game on clearance for $12.49. Also, if you return an Amazon purchase there, you'll get a coupon for 25% off an in-store purchase.

I just found on amazon.com, yet another new Family Feud box game, called "The Big Buzzer" edition!  I though it was neat, seeing how the  new "Disney," themed version features a card holder, w/Mickey Mouse ears;  This version has an electronic buzzer, with the show's logo embossed on it:
