It's coming rather late with it being a summer-time toy, but I just found this being available for "pre-order":

Based on the stunt competition, not the Peter Tomarken produced/hosted game show.

In an earlier post, I'd mentioned about the "All-New" Platinum Edition of Family Feud.  Here is the box image for that:

Also this version was just listed recently:

At https://familyfeud.shop/, you may now purchase the "Digital Party Game" versions of the Baby Shower, Bachelorette Party, AND Wildlife editions.  The Wildlife edition board game is still listed as "Coming Soon," but has a somewhat different box cover, still indicating the "San Diego Zoo," but using what might be the zoo's official logo

Serious question- has the Harvey Feud had more home versions than any other iteration of any game show? Between the home games, card games, travel games, games in a box, digital party games, mustache in a box games and whatever else they come up with, there's got to be 20 plus versions.

In the multi-formatted game category -- most likely.

Now if you are talking one manufacturer/same formatted home game, I think Milton Bradley's original Concentration  home game is the clear winner with well over 25 editions that came out over the years and all pretty much the exact same contents, save for a different puzzle roll.

You had 24 Milton Bradley editions of Password, at least 8 from Endless, and 1 from cardboard - er, Cardinal.

MB made it to the 14th edition by 1982 (so 13 total).

Milton Bradley issued 24 or 25 editions each of both Password and Concentration. Now if we add different platforms to those new board game editions, Feud has to be at least right up there with Milton Bradley and Endless board game editions, floppies, ROMs, Karn DVDs, O'Hurley DVDs, Steve Harvey card games and Android/iOS editions. I think it wins for number of platforms it's been on, if not total number of versions.

Off hand I don't know how many altogether have been from Cardinal/Imagination Gaming/Spin Master; however, if I'm correct in just the last 12 months, they have released TEN different themed versions!  Milton Bradley used to release a new regular edition, on average, once every year.

I wouldn't be surprised if in the fall of 2022/2023, Pressman will release a 40th Anniversary edition of WOF, partly for that reason, but also because 2022 marks Pressman's 100th anniversary!

Absolutely right! For those unfamiliar with the story, Milton Bradley released a total of 13 editions, but didn't identify a "13th" edition among them (triskadecaphobia, reportedly.)  Likewise with Password and Concentration!

Who is this for? I understand why you might have a bridal/baby shower version of the game, as those are continuing to happen virtually. But I would imagine that most people doing anything Halloween themed are doing it in person, and not all workplace are big on Halloweeen/costume parties.

At $10 a pop, they're the right impulse purchase price point. Wonder how many of these they've sold.

So....$10 was definitely a good impulse purchase price point. Out of mobid curiosity, I bought it.

It's a PowerPoint game control with macros, but it's done well and looks appealing. This version comes with 50 preloaded questions and a downloadable question PDF file akin to the answer booklet that came with dry-erase versions of the game. The questions are actually straightforward and don't delve into the "You can't say (redacted)" territory, so that's a welcome surprise. Each game is 5 single point rounds. There's no Double/Triple rounds, and no Fast Money. Highest score after 5 questions is the winner. Wash, rinse repeat.

Most people in the game show community have access to more sophisticated game controls that render this one useless, but for the Average Joe that doesn't need/want to learn button combos to play a few rounds of Family Feud, this game features most of the bells and whistles, and I think there's just enough here for that crowd to warrant a $10 price tag.

Was the promo showing actual product image, or just horizontal scrolling message mentioning the upcoming give away?
