Which was why I was surprised: I've seen the little LCD football game on the toy hangers with 20Q and the other stuff and to me it never stopped being a viable thing.

Since I'm rather sure that thing doesn't have voice recognition, how in the hell can you answer questions with phrases without a keyboard?

Presumably it works like the shitty Tiger version and uses a thick unwieldy book for looking up answers, and you just enter the "answer number".

That's some pretty cutting edge technology there.........on my Quiz Wiz 30+ years ago.

It looks like that without the answer booklet- all of the game content might be on the screen, which would explain the d-pad.

Which would turn the game into "Which of these answers in front of you looks to be the best one?"

Wheel of Fortune came out with a pretty addictive new app called Wheel of Fortune Puzzle Pop.  It's normally $2.99 but free for a limited time with promo code WHEELPOP.  It's basically Wheel of Fortune combined with a bubble shooter type game with letters mixed in the bubbles.  It actually has quite a bit of strategy involved as you only get a limited number of shots for each puzzle and you only want to go for letters that are in the puzzle.  Much like Candy Crush, the first few puzzles are quite easy and then the difficulty slowly grows.

Shows up free (with what looks like the Candy Crush model) in the App Store for me. What's this about a promo code?

I was wondering if anyone saw at the end of the first half of Sunday night's "Celebrity Family Feud," the promo for a new "Family Feud," board game? The end credits showed that it is apparently from Cardinal Industries.  I didn't quite get a good look, but it was NOT the "game cards" that was released almost one year ago.  I also couldn't quite tell if it had all new contents, or stuff similar to the Endless Games board game.

If anybody DVR'd it and could just post a still of the game, I'd appreciate it!

Probably that all the questions are Disney-themed.

Given the current state of Feud, probably something like this...

"Name a dwarf which describes Snow White in bed."

/Please let Dopey be the number one answer, please let Dopey be the number one answer...

I don't know how long it's been out, but the card game Linkee looks to be a melding of Only Connect and Stage Two, which interests me, but not for Barnes & Noble prices.
