Home adaptations of television game shows are made mostly of paper, cardboard and plastic, and often the game play has to be changed significantly to fit the relevant constraints. Since the 1980s, many home games have been created for popular home computers and video game consoles. ''{{Jeopardy}}'' and ''WheelOfFortune'' are probably two of the biggest examples in recent years, at least from the game show front.

* Parodied in ''[[WhoseLineIsItAnyway Whose Line is it Anyway?]]''. Apparently, it comes with a blow-up doll version of Drew Carey. At other times, Drew claimed that the home game was a mail-in premium from ABC; [[BlatantLies one would later receive "a desk and four stools" if they sent in their money]]. * A ''SaturdayNightLive'' sketch featured a game show called ''I'm Gonna Have Sex With your Wife''.

* The first ''WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire'' home game was eventually packaged with a disclaimer advising buyers that it was for entertainment only and offered absolutely no actual cash prize, as so many people who did not grasp that it was only a game tried to claim the million pound TV show prize for successfully completing it.

* Fictional game show ''Numberwang'' in ''ThatMitchellAndWebbLook'' is revealed to have an equally overly complicated home game; featuring a pair of 400-sided dice that are too small to see with the human eye, a wig of the host's hair, a rotating board, and a 37-volume rule book, "so you can say 'That's Numberwang!' with confidence!"
