Although it's not yet available for purchase at this time, the San Diego Zoo's website is going to have the Family Feud Wildlife edition available soon.  This is the first time the box botton illustration is shown:

Some of you might be interested in investing in Gamestar+.  This website has all kinds of info, as well as videos, you might find interesting.  They show what might be a prototype box cover for Family Feud in the window where you click to see the video presentation, complete with comments from Steve Harvey:

Honestly, while I’m always wary of a company who’s the self proclaimed “Netflix of (Blank)”, I think there’s something here. A lot of those DVD games weren’t fully interactive in that the game relied you to tell it what was happening on the real life board/score pad to move forward. I’d consider paying $5 a month to stream the Scene It library along with a bunch of interactive game shows.

I'm surprised the Netflix hasn't even ventured out in that direction - licensing notwithstanding.

Apparently a Supermarket Sweep game is coming- Buzzr is giving some away in a watch and win promotion…

Was the promo showing actual product image, or just horizontal scrolling message mentioning the upcoming give away?
Appeared to show the front and back of the box (whether actual product or mockup, I couldn't tell you).

EDIT: Here's the promo in question...

https://twitter.com/BUZZRtv/status/1443984134913892385

The Android Gamestar App has been updated with the Supermarket Sweep game component and they also added something for a Deal or No Deal game. The Supermarket Sweep app contains the alternative theme in the clear as well as the Big Sweep and Super Sweep Music that they use. The actual game is still in the pre-order stage on Amazon and says it releases on November 9th.

Can confirm that the iOS version has been updated as well. The Deal or No Deal component is essentially a bank offer calculator.

Good to note that the Amazon listing for the UK version of the Millionaire board game, also has images of a US board game that's not available on Amazon US yet.

Each question card has a "lifeline" QR code that you can scan. 12-question stack, looks like "Ask the Host" is included as well.

An online store, fleetfarm.com is showing, "Jumbo Card Game," versions of J!, WOF, PYL and DOND.  Here is the link to PYL:

https://www.fleetfarm.com/detail/press-your-luck-card-game/0000000377813?Ntt=press%20your%20luck

The DOND is listed as "out of stock" at this time.

I also stumbled across these at walmart.ca (Canada):

https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/family-feud-kids-game-box-multi/6000203864259

I found the J! and PYL games at my local Go Toy and game store.

You'll notice those have content in both English and French.

The DOND one can be found at Walmart also.

Fleet Farm is a store chain in the upper Midwest (mainly MN and WI, and a few in IA, ND and SD).

I meant' to mention that the box art to the one at fleetfarm is different, showing a cell-phone for app use, but that's probably all it is.  The exact same contents, I'll bet!

If you feel like trying your luck, Target has Plinko at a Black Friday/clearance price of $14.24. (I recently scored the Goodwill find of a lifetime with a working board for $1.99.)

I know someone on here used half-dollar coins instead of the included chips. I found something that works even better: 30 mm stainless steel stamping blanks. They're a bit lighter and smaller, so they have a little more bounce and unpredictability to them. And their size means using 1" round stickers to decorate them gives you that nice Plinko chip look with a shiny metal edge. I got a 10-pack on Amazon for $8.

Card Sharks has migrated out of the games section and into the discount racks at Barnes & Noble. $10.

Family Feud for the Switch/PS4/XBox One is $14.99 at Best Buy, at least at the time of posting.  The Switch version moves a little slow for my taste i.e. you can't skip through dialogue.  Otherwise, it's not bad for the price.

I have the Xbox One version- we cannot skip either.

For that price I'll add it to my Christmas list. It's probably an indication that the show itself is done.
