Doesn't look like it's published yet. It's called Word Ace.

I don't know what happened to Word Ace, but remember the guy who got rejected by the judges for BulletBall? He's now self-marketing his product. Check it out here.

The videos actually make it look a whole lot more interesting than the TV show gave it credit for.

sorry but BulletBall is not going to be an Olympic Sport like he says in the video. He is a terrible marketer. Instead of trying ot nail down a niche he says everyone and their donkey can play it. Just to grand of a vision.

A vision of it becoming an Olympic sport? I think I'd rather play table air hockey than BulletBall. So remind me, why did air hockey never become an Olympic sport?

Wow, how long did it take him to "invent" that? I think I invented that game a dozen times between the ages of 5 and 15. I think every kid that's been sitting at a table with a ping pong ball has invented that game. Which is also its biggest problem as a marketable game. From what I can see, all you need is a table and a ping pong ball, and maybe a few stray hard-backed books if you want some side walls like he has.
