100, 150, 250, 300, 400, 500, Tic, Tac, Dragon

Thanks. Even more curious. What I have here is $100, $150, $200, $300, $350, $500, and the three Dragons.

I was thinking anybody hardcore enough to put together a set of bonus cards with three Dragons, keep the game question content complete, AND keep the box in as good a condition as it was was going to get the remaining dollar values true to TV, too, but clearly they didn't. Hmm.

But I can't remember from my original set back in the day; was that a content mistake or did this previous owner actually cull this together out of three sets?

Every complete copy I can find has 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400 and 500 with 4 dragons. I imagine the original way the cards were before perforating necessitated a multiple of 4 (as that's a total of 12). And of course, one copy I corroborated with on eBay had the original owner pencil in "TIC" and "TAC" over two of the dollar amounts. Fans be fans, in any decade :)

That would be a much more Occam's-Razor-explanation for what I have here. I think later today I might break out the Photoshop and cardstock and see what I might be able to whip up, just out of curiosity.

Here's a screenshot from my copy of Greggo's software that features the nine bonus boxes, just to save everyone some time.

Much appreciated! I ended up grabbing one from the Flashgames one. (There's a blast from the past, right?) I have pretty good slides for the boxes, now I need to cobble together a card back.

I figure I can do one of two things: I can either try to make it look like a category that reads "BONUS GAME" (except aside from culling the letters from an old screenshot from a Netgames thread that actually happens to happen to have all of those letters I'm not sure how to do it in a way that looks authentic and decent) or I can just find a Tic Tac Dough logo and put it against the pink number background, which would probably end up garish AF but would totally be fitting with the show. :)

Massive longshot, but has someone made that category font? I've come close but can't hit it exactly.

I've recently acquired copies of the Imagination DVD Games for To Tell the Truth and Beat the Clock. The history I have heard of them in the past is sporadic. Were they only released in that special tin? I just have the games and cases.
The backs also list Double Dare (Trebek presumably), What's My Line, Tatttletales and Play Your Hunch. I assume those never saw the light of day.

TTTT features Burton as announcer and music and clips from TTTT 00-01. Burton dubs over any questions and affidavits. It's a 2 team game, and you play 3 rounds each of Burton asking contestants 1 different question each. After each 3 questions, you can try to guess or listen to 3 more questions, but it's worth fewer points. I think there's up to 3, maybe 4 rounds of questions with those particular contestants before you must answer. After that, they give bonus points if you can answer how the audience voted. Most points at the end wins.

Didn't get much into BTC, but the only footage I saw was they use the 50s clock intro in some capacity as a game opener. Other than that, it's just graphics that we're made specifically for the game with an unnamed voice-over host. The format is similar to Nick DD with a question round, then stunts until a winner is determined for the Bonus Round which is scrambled phrases.

I found an entry for TTTT on a "Lost Media" page, proclaimed as "Lost" but I know that term is used extremely loosely and usually just means that that particular person has never seen it.

TTTT was kinda fun. BtC may be in a Party setting but they have a list of suggested props to have on hand for the stunts portion to be executed correctly so it requires some preparation. Of course, the technology is dated now but was neat in 2006.

That is some excellent handiwork! What is your design program of choice?

Arcade1up, which specializes in making replica arcade games for home use, has announced a Wheel of Fortune casinocade machine.  It features four different Wheel of Fortune slot machine games along with 21 other casino and puzzle games.  I'd be more interested if it had some of the actual Wheel of Fortune arcade games on it, but it would be a cool looking addition to a game room.

I got confirmation from Arcade1Up that these are NOT the IGT licensed versions that you might see in a real-world casino, but are versions that are currently available in the Wheel of Fortune Slots mobile app (not the IGT one).
