I also found out B&N will be carrying another surprise, but doesn't have any yet.  Here, however you can order a copy from amazon.com

https://www.amazon.com/100-000-Pyramid-Game/dp/B07NGM7TW2/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=pressman+pyramid&qid=1567555330&s=gateway&sr=8-2

Anyone else take issue with the phrasing of "HOME EDITION with Michael Strahan"?

The descriptions I've found of the game have been very vague, but it seems to have some sort of computer element involving Strahan rather than being a straight box game. Has anyone found anything more detailed?

This might explain the "Game includes new puzzles and sets from the show" bullet point from the Amazon description. That left me scratching my head, and I figured it's a computer/DVD/video game.

{Photographer rant}The HOME EDITION didn't really throw me off, but I'm cringing at Michael's lapel covering part of his collar, as well as his watch sticking out so much. I get that he's leaning on something, and I've missed little details myself on shoots, but for a picture gracing the cover of a home game, someone prolly should've caught the lapel. That's just the photographer in me Monday Morning QB'g, so carry on.{/Photog rant}

Might be that the product descriptions are a bit confused, too. Blain's Farm & Fleet has it listed on their site, but the product description is clearly from the old $1M Pyramid DVD game.

Just got back from Barnes and Noble. Endless Games went really cheap on their last three Password games, and the Cardinal version was ghastly, but I just can't resist a Password game and...I'm actually pretty impressed. The word holders are attractive vinyl again. The scoring pads are HUGE--I think the biggest ones that a Password game has ever had. And the scoring dial is printed on really thick cardboard and designed to stand, like the old Milton-Bradley dials. My only real knock on the game is one that applies to many of the Password home versions--for what you're actually buying, it's a box of air. But it's just nice to see a company getting back on track with a game that's been bungled in its last few efforts. I'm actually writing a note to the company to thank them.

10 rounds of play is acceptable for a $6 card game. Yeesh. The pieces sound similar to the old Cardinal and Endless home games, but I think those each had about 50 rounds of play in them.

I'm trying to remain optimistic that maybe 10 was just a typo, or that each card somehow has more than one game on it. But given the quality (or total lack thereof) of Pressman's most recent WoF box game...it's not easy.
It was Bob Barker. He was eating a bologna and cheese-ball sandwich.

I was gonna assume the cards were two-sided, but even then the benchmark is 25 games worth of content, and this still doesn't meet it. Pass.

Well, I ordered it yesterday and have it coming from Amazon.

I'll post a full thing tomorrow - if it's craptacular, I'll send it back.

The Barnes & Noble site has a pic of the Pyramid cover in the "Games & Collectibles" section.
