A new television game show is planned based on the board game Boggle. In development by Entertainment One, Keller/Noll, and Hasbro Studios, Boggle Battle will have three teams of contestants facing off over giant-sized Boggle boards. In the tabletop version, at least, the goal is to find as many words as you can—but different words from the other players—in a 4×4 grid of letter dice. The TV show’s game play will also involve special elimination rounds tied to pop-culture topics like Harry Potter, Marvel, and Game of Thrones.

No word yet on when or where the show will be broadcast.

Tipping Point Board Game

Tipping PointJohn Adams has secured a license for a board game version of the ITV (U.K.) quiz show Tipping Point. Like the television show, the board game will incorporate a tipping point machine, a battery-operated device in to which players drop counters, hoping to stack up enough that other counters are pushed over the edge.
