I hope there will finally be a home version of "The Wall," here in the U.S., and maybe a new version of "25 Words or Less,"  and maybe even "The Chase."
With the success of the daytime show, I'm surprised there's not a new home version of 25 Words. It is extremely rare on Amazon, and the last time I looked, the seller wanted about $100. I'm good. :P

Apparently, my earlier post mentioning the 25 Words or Less facebook page asking fans if they would like to see a new box game, generated enough interest.  An article at Toy Book mentions it will be released in June from USAOpoly (aka The OP).  No illustration at this time.

I just got the Family Feud Digital Party Game that can be played over Zoom and other services where you can share a screen. The look and feel of the show is there with the graphics and sound effects, and it comes with 50 questions (5 in each game).

However it runs on PowerPoint so it's limited with what it can do. There's no double or triple rounds, steal answers add to the bank in each round, and there's no Fast Money. Still it's not bad for $10, and I would think there's a way to hack it to add your own questions.

Not sure if I've ever psoted this here, but I stumbled upon a website with surprisingly decent PowerPoint game show controls that are free to download.. See for yourself.

I recently bought from an online company called Continuum Games, mini-sized Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy games w/apps, from Imagination Gaming--the same people who released the Family Feud and Press Your Luck board games w/apps.  Coming in packaging similar in size to the company's Family Feud Late Night edition game; these can be played with or without the apps:

https://continuumgames.com/product/jeopardy-game-w-app/

https://continuumgames.com/product/wheel-of-fortune-game-w-app/

The J! game comes with cards and stands that are similar but different in design to the Outset Media versions of J!  The app lets you add sound effects, random placement of Daily Doubles (person acting as host does that if playing without the app), and allows players to write FJ! wagers and responses on their phone screens.  There's enough material for 15 games without repeating.

The WOF app allows players to add sound effects, and a video wheel simulator (though a smaller cardboard wheel with a spinning arrow is included, for playing game without app.  EG should've included one like it, with their "Quick Pick" game years ago.)  You still write the letters on a dry erasable puzzle board included with the game.

Looks like the UK is getting set to release new versions of a couple of favorites - https://toyworldmag.co.uk/john-adams-to-launch-new-board-games-for-the-cube-and-lingo/

Regarding the "appcessory":

1. I can't believe I can just download it and play it with no proof of purchase. I figured there would be a QR code inside each box or something that would activate access. $25 gets you a plush Whammy and a couple dozen question cards and, I'm assuming, a score pad, because

2. The app is literally just the board. No scorekeeping, no spin-keeping, no Whammy-keeping. Just spinning and stopping.

3. The app has three rounds: Two like the current show, and a third where the Big Bucks square is $25K/$25K/$25K+Spin. So if you were looking to play the show as it's currently built, you can't.

4. The board simply does not work. The values change on every move of the square, which, fine, it's more random, whatever. But when you hit the Stop button, the board does not stop in the spot you hit; rather, it just picks any random square on the board and decides that's what you get.

5. After about 5 minutes of play with my boys, the board has some obvious glitches. There is a $4,500 square in Round 2 that comes up as a Whammy when you "land" on it. Sometimes you hit a Whammy and nothing happens.

6. There is no rotation of prizes, nor is there any art for the prize squares. Instead, it's "$25,000 SPORTS CAR" or "$20,000 FAMILY CAR," or about four others.

7. The Whammy animations are in full, right from the show. They repeat very quickly. Might be about a dozen of them.

I remain amazed that one person was able to do 20 years ago, in his spare time for free, what no software company has been able to do since.

My goodness, I had considered purchasing the Press Your Luck home game, but now with those points, I am reconsidering.

It's okay, faithful to the show at the time and has the option to use or disable the question timer. The music is a little on the annoying side (it can be disabled as well), sometimes the text is a little difficult to read and it's not uncommon for the same question to pop up two games in a row.

There have been some online distributors taking "pre-orders," for the new 25 Words or Less board game, most of which are not showing a peek at the game/contents.  This distributor, located in Canada, shows more info than any other:

Here is a link with a peek and info for the latest Family Feud board game, associated with Carnival Cruise Lines:

Has a new Card Sharks game that heavily borrows from the Eubanks Era, but with 7 card rows like the current version.

I also keep getting ads/notifications from them about a Press Your Luck Online Game, Press Your Luck Poker and Press Your Luck Gin Rummy but they are nowhere to be found on the site.

They worked music from both Perry and Eubanks Eras in as well.

Looks like you can now order for shipping. I splurged, even though the 2-day shipping is almost as much as the game itself. I've been spoiled by Prime, so hopefully Amazon doesn't stock it anytime soon.
