If you have a board game named after you, you are significantly more than "only mildly egotistical"...

Yeah.  That Jan Murray was an asshat.

Just because "Chris Lemon's Lemon Party!" didn't exactly fly off the shelves doesn't mean you have to get all huffy about it.

I was thinking more along the lines of "Reiner Knizia's X" or "Sid Sackson's Y" or "Steve Jackson's" .... okay, I'll spot you Steve Jackson.

That's very true. I'm much more likely to buy a game that has a familiar designer's name on it.

I am almost certain that Donald J. Trump did not design Trump: the Game. It was some peon deep within the bowels of the dev basement and the company marketeers put the Trump skin on it. I mentioned this fairly recently--I'm not sure why Jake didn't pick up on this. Maybe he has me blocked.

When did I ever suggest that Trump had anything whatsoever to do with the design of the game?  In fact, if he allowed his name and likeness to be put on a game that he had absolutely nothing to do with the design or creation of, that is the height of egotistical in my book...not sure just what it is you think I should have "picked up on"...

So, why would I have blocked you?  Is it because you tend to be a bit of a...oh, never mind...

Coming on September 8 to the 3DS is the first traditional game show adaptation for that console (read:  Not Wipeout):  Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?

Jackbox Games has announced that the Jackbox Party Pack 2 will be released this fall. The new pack will be headlined by Fibbage 2, while the other four games remain a secret. I presume that You Don't Know Jack will return- the only other game I could see making a return from the first pack is Drawful. At any rate, I'm happy Jackbox continues to crank out new games, especially since the BYOD format lends itself so well to parties.

A few weeks ago I happened upon a largely complete and good condition sixth edition of Endless Password, in a new shape box and dubbled "Classic Password." I don't know if further editions had a similar problem but the magic window reader is no longer a pleasant leatherette but instead a flimsy paper sleeve that is difficult to open.

The Family Feud "Party" tin contains a question booklet, a wipe-off card, and a marker. That's it. However, it is on sale for $6.99 and claims to have 350 survey questions, so those seeking material might consider it. Also, if you have a Kohl's card, you recently received a $5 coupon good on any purchase of $5 or more. 350 survey questions for $1.99 is a decent acquisition.

Endless bastardized the later editions that way. I'm not sure with which version that started, but it's so much of a turn off for me that I don't bother with those editions, even when I see them for sale for almost nothing.

Five Below has the Family Feud "GameBox" edition by Cardinal for $5. It has 203 survey questions individually printed on cards, as well as some strike cards.

Also for $5: Giant Freaking Foam Rubber Dice. I'm talking, like, 8 or 10 inches per side. Available in black, or neon pink, green, or blue. For when Dice Game-sized dice just ain't cuttin' it.
