The puzzle board from the Tyco '92 game got it right, better than Pressman's IMO. Used letter board right there on the board (as opposed to flipping through the manual and looking up how many R's are in Puzzle #62), and there's something much more satisfying about the flappy piece of plastic to reveal the letters on the board itself.

It's just wild to me that these have basically been the same since the 80s, short of the smaller puzzle board.
You'd think they'd at the very least stop including "Free Play" tokens.

And is it just me, or is $50 / $100 / $200 / $400 / $1000 bills when everything is either $3500 or $500-900 an incredibly bad system?

For the first time, I've seen a listing for such a products at LTD Commodities:

https://www.ltdcommodities.com/images/product/92541_1325311_WEZ_zm.jpg

This might just be a promotional prototype box, so don't be surprised one way or the other.

Yeah, looks like they just took the 4th edition photo and slapped a "5th" on only the box, as the manual still says "4th Edition".

It's just wild to me that these have basically been the same since the 80s, short of the smaller puzzle board.

Wow, even the same play money. I wonder if those have been in print longer than Milton Bradley Bucks were.

How long has the wheel in those editions not had a $5,000 space?

Also when did they finally switch from a crayon to a dry-erase marker for the ULB?

Beat That! Is a game that comes with a bunch of every day items and 160 different physical challenges with said items. If youíre looking for a stand in for Double Dare/Beat The Clock/ Minute to Win It, this looks to be it.

EG's new Card Sharks game is now showing at amazon.com, for $24.99:

https://www.amazon.com/Card-Sharks-Game-Official-Survey/dp/B07R1W9P9J/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=card+sharks+endless+games&qid=1600780862&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExUjJGTzRLTkM2S0IxJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwODI2NDkxMllDNkdVQk0xVDZEUiZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNjA1NDkyMTRBNzg4TU8xRUhVSSZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=

There is a short fifteen second promo video which I wouldn't be surprised if it airs during the show, premiering in October.

BTW, a very reputable source told me that the show has been updated and will play just like the box game!

Something that caught my eye in the Amazon page for the Card Sharks game--Manufacturer Minimum Age:  168.  I hope I'll get thorough enjoyment of this game when, per Endless Games, I'll be old enough to play it in the 2140s.

It's shown quickly in on-air promos that yes, the front game is now 7 cards. Looks like they kept the same framework from last season and just spaced out the individual cards a bit.

Yesterday, I saw the Family Feud Blockbuster Movie edition game for $19.97 at Walmart.  No signs of any of the other editions, nor the PYL board game. 

Today, I'd seen for the first time in any store (B&N here), the Half Truth game from Richard Garfield & Ken Jennings.  Looks like fun!

I saw that game at a B&N here in NYC and made an impulse buy. Looking forward to playing it some post-Covid day.

On Jeopardy's website, they're now promoting a subscription-based customizable Jeopardy (presumably replacing the Classroom Jeopardy kit). It allows for customizable games, as various pictures show different numbers of categories and clues.

The cost? $1500. Per year.

While software-as-service is BS, I could almost justify the price if there wasn't a pandemic on.

Outside of the deluxe versions of Wheel, I wonder what the cost differential would be to provide more than one wheel for different rounds, or a spinner on a clear plastic sheet/base so to speak that could overlay different round wheel configurations.  I mean, does then mass public care about the wheel layouts or just the game show enthusiasts?
