Gamestop's Nintendo Switch preorder list shows Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy coming on 10/30 as a $40 set. Obviously wait until it goes on discount, where you can get it for half that.

Also. Jackbox Party Pack 5 is available on all major systems, and includes a brand new version of YDKJ.

Today I noticed in the local Go Toys and Games store a new Family Feud game co-branded by Imagination Gaming/Cardinal Industries.  It was Family Game Night "Family Feud" Kids Vs. Parents.  Here is what it looks like via amazon.com:

Switch port of Wheel of Fortune is really bad. There's tons of missing sound effects (like the "puzzle win", speed-up music, and even the freakin' letter dings), and the framerate can barely hold up, even when you're not docked at 1080p. Online play has been more chill than Xbox (expected), otherwise, it's the same Season 34 rules with no changes. Didn't have a chance to play Jeopardy!, but I expect no changes.

The other evening, I saw at my local Family Dollar store, Family Feud "boxed game."  This was Cardinal's cube-shaped box game, much smaller, and containing very little, for only one dollar! 

When they say on the box that it includes 24 cards, it breaks down into eighteen survey question cards (w/one question on each), six red "X," cards and six blue "X," cards.  There is one additional card, describing the rules of the game.

Family Dollar and Dollar Tree stores and owned by the same company.  Dollar Tree sells the Strikeout card game from Endless Games for only $1!  EG's game contains 47 question cards (two questions on each card), and similar "X," cards, plus instructions.  EG's version is more worth it, and plays the same!

I've often wondered, why EG hasn't released a second edition "Strikeout" card game.  It's been in stores in the same form (same questions), since 2011!

Is the content as dreadful as past Endless products have been?
