If anyone's looking for a set of Dice Game dice, these sure seem like they will do the trick for $22.

I love the people who think changing the value of a Yahtzee Rollzee is what's gonna keep Hasbro off their nads.

A six die Rollzee would be quite a feat.

I believe Die #6 is to be used in Furkle on the other side of the whiteboard.

I bought a set off of Wayfair and they arrived a few days ago. Definitely would recommend picking up a set.

If it's important to you, the dice have the "North American" 1 where the pip is the same size as all the others, as opposed to the "Chinese" 1 where the single pip is much larger than all the others.

And with 6 of 'em, you can play Deluxe Dice Game for a Ferrari (or Lucid). ;)

I noticed at walmart.com that they will be soon stocking the Family Feud "Survey Says," jumbo card game.  The same card game is included with the Gamestar+ edition as a bonus.  When in my local Walmart store, I didn't see the card game, but I noticed a spot in the same aisle showing a Family Feud "Survey Says," full size game for around $20.  There wasn't any in stock, just a descriptive label w/price.

They can certainly complain about the name if they want in a "marketplace confusion" sense, but given how similar Yahtzee is in name to the public domain implementation, that is tricky.  They can't do anything about the game itself, since game rules cannot be protected.

I'd agree if they were stealing the public-domain part of the name, instead of the trademarked embellishment. "We're just a version of the public-domain game of Yacht" is one thing." "We're a dice game totally trading on the name of Hasbro's product" is going to get a lot less sympathy from the court.

Several pages back, someone mentioned an upcoming "All-Time Funniest Questions" Feud game.  Does anyone have more information on this?

Several pages back, someone mentioned an upcoming "All-Time Funniest Questions" Feud game.  Does anyone have more information on this?

Here is where I first got such information:  https://www.acdd.com/catalog/product/view/id/86224/s/family-feud-funniest-ever-questions/

It wouldn't surprise me if it was a "working title,' and maybe what I found out here is what might soon be available: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Family-Feud-ALL-STARS-Edition/378385427?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0

The same site also showed this:  https://www.walmart.com/ip/seort/368472852?irgwc=1&sourceid=imp_XvMSp00c8xyNRxFVN2z1fRCmUkD3jiS733-pyU0&veh=aff&wmlspartner=imp_2055067&clickid=XvMSp00c8xyNRxFVN2z1fRCmUkD3jiS733-pyU0&sharedid=&affiliates_ad_id=568844&campaign_id=9383

As well as this:  https://www.walmart.com/ip/seort/894599638?irgwc=1&sourceid=imp_XvMSp00c8xyNRxFVN2z1fRCmUkD3jnTL33-pyU0&veh=aff&wmlspartner=imp_2055067&clickid=XvMSp00c8xyNRxFVN2z1fRCmUkD3jnTL33-pyU0&sharedid=&affiliates_ad_id=568844&campaign_id=9383

I'm wondering if like with FF, the J! game is being made with different themes in mind.

BTW the WOF and J! game tins w/books are apparently being delayed until December, 2022.

While shopping at my local Meijer store, I'd seen a counter update in the toy & game aisle.  A spot was marked for "Password."  It also read "small box" leading me to believe it may come in a box about the size of the one Cardinal released several years ago.

Since they had none in stock, I'm wondering if it will feature new graphics related to the new series (premiering tonight), and maybe if they'll promote this version during the show.
