"You don't get to come back tomorrow. You don't even get a lousy copy of our home game. You're a complete loser!"When a Game Show has been around for a while, loyal fans will want to play the game at home. In fact, the very first radio quiz shows had home games in the form of quiz books, originally created as advertising premiums. 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 Wheel of Fortune are probably two of the biggest examples in recent years, at least from the game show front. Often given as a Consolation Prize in the actual game show, naturally as Product Placement. Matt Ottinger has more information on home versions of game shows.
