-The word holders are now thick cardboard, which, in one way, is a step up from Endless' cheap paper ones from their later editions. But Cardinal's cardboard word holders have a very conspicuous seam along the back held together with glue, which looks pretty chintzy. The back of the word holders also have the message "LET'S FIND THE PASSWORD" across the back for some reason.
presumably this is the one that is available at Target? Can you use the old card sleeves for this?

You can ALMOST use the old word sleeves, but Cardinal is using a really big font for the Passwords that makes it difficult at times.

It's also worth noting that in pulling out a card to check, I noticed the Passwords "Twitterpate" and "Midsummer" on the cards, so I'm leaning more and more toward a hard pass on this one.

-"Beij   ing" is a password on the one card I've looked at (and that's exactly how it's printed)
Are any of the "password"s two words?  The prototype contents pictured on the bottom of the box shows "lamp shade" as one of the "password"s.

Apparently, there are TWO changes to the clue giving rules--No repeating of previously used clues & no proper nouns as clues!

Just one that I remember:  "New York".  A fair number of the other passwords are in fact proper names too.

It's that time of the year again, where for the holiday season the Go Toys and Games store opens at my area mall.  Today, I saw a new Star Wars themed Family Feud game, from Cardinal games!  The price was $19.99!  Didn't really have much time to look at it, but seems to be much like Cardinal's Disney themed version.

My local Go! store has the anniversary edition of Family Feud for $30, and inexplicably, Cardinal Password for $25.

Although I'd seen the "Star Wars Family Feud" box game at Go games, Toys R Us is now showing it at their website, and listing it as "Only at TRU."

Here's what the box art looks like:

Oh nice. Maybe I can finally retire my Xbox 360 from under the TV (still play Pipeworks excellent WoF and J! releases from 5 years ago). Even without the talent, hope the gameplay is good.
