One buzzer. Not two, one.

FORTY dollars for one buzzer.

Assuming the Fast Money setup is the same as the MB/Pressman editions, that's why there's still ten slides. One row for each question.

When was the last time the Family Feud board showed 10 answers on the board anyway?

I went back and checked because I was curious - Combs Feud was the last time.

Well of course Travis, you only get one buzzer.  After all, Endless needs an excuse to flog a pair of buzzers (sold seperately of course for the low, low $ale of the Century price of $14.95.)

And based on those reviews, the quality is complete crap. So it's good to know Endless is still reliable.

A long time ago during the run of the cheap looking Louie Anderson 'Family Feud' a guy posted in a Yahoo! game show group something like 'for those of you who do not know Endless Games is the Pearson Television of board games'.

Closer to the Entertainment Studios, but that's the general idea, yeah.

What's funny is that one of the "you could also buy" things is exactly what I bought--a pair of noisemaker buttons from a local teachers supply store.

Was there ever a time on the original series (or the Combs' series), where 11 or 12 answers were on the board?

There happened to be an open box of the 6th Edition at Walmart tonight. Who's paying 15 bucks for this?



Now, if we're talking strictly in an economy of scale, if this is $15, then yes, $40 for a version with a sliding game board, strike cards, and one buzzer seems in line. However, much as Words Have Meanings, Dollars Have Value, and sheesh, what a rip.

Are those two cards supposed to be face-off buzzers? The actual fark? That's pathetic even by Endless "standards."

Yep.

In that case, this guy would feel like he was right back in the studio again.

I'm far more excited for this.
