In 1960, Milton Bradley released a board game “home version” of the game. Its rules closely matched those of the television program. The game proved popular enough that Milton Bradley continued to sell copies even after the show had been cancelled. Milton Bradley's Boob Tube game was also sold as a Video Village tie-in.
