I was browsing reddit in the r/boardgames, and user u/brody31 started a post where he mentioned Target stores will be selling new versions of Codenames, TTR, and Machi Koro. I looked around for more info but couldn't find any more than what was on the reddit. Anyone here know something?
Here is the link to reddit:

Actually, this is something completely different. I already know about those titles. Click the reddit link.

Did you not click the link. The first thing you see is that it's not any of those.

The Codenames one is interested. I wonder if it has to do with limiting your sight of the cards? The people on the box seem to be in the dark and unseen.

TTR looks like a young version of the game. Like My First Stone Age. Machi Koro I would guess is a new expansion. Perhaps adding night clubs and similar evening entertainment to the game?

Very interesting.

The Ticket to Ride version looks like a kid's version to introduce young ones to the game.

The Codenames puzzles me more. I think that says "Adults Only" on the box, as if they are trying to create a dirtier version of the games (like Telestrations did with After Dark). Seems an odd thing to do with a game that won family game of the year.

I doubt.

Yeah the Codenames Deep Undercover is definitely an R rated version. One of the codename tiles on the back cover is "clam" shake

But.... this seems so unnecessary.

Some games of codenames already get reasonably salty depending on the players.

Ah well. I guess the marketing department knows what they're doing.....

So yeah, if any of the words from the back of the box had popped up in a regular game, I wouldn't have realized they were "adult" words. I mean, I get what they're going for, but all those words have standard meanings that aren't necessarily adult as well.

Whoops, that makes more sense. I was wondering how you hadn't stumbled upon the other two games already, hehe. Good thing I didn't make a snarky comment to try and embarrass you, eh!

Right on, the words on the back cover only look like double entendres rather than completely naughty words like **** and ****.

I doubt there will be another Machi Koro, I remember reading that millionares row would be the last installment. As well as it is deeply discounted on every website so I doubt they would put out another expansion.

Apparently this new version, from what I gather, takes the base game and some of the best cards from the expansions, adds some dice, and changes the artwork on a handful of the cards to represent nightlife and is a Target exclusive.

My initial thought was it was to head off the inevitable CAH+Codenames knockoffs on Kickstarter.

Is it a new base game? So not an expansion? Like sorry were starting from scratch?

I THINK so but I could be wrong. people have had different stories but what I put above is in most. I'd not say they are starting over but more of Target buying reskins or games with exclusive components from manufacturers to get us in their toy aisles. IE I don't think this game will be available anywhere else

The original Codenames has sold 400,000 copies, so they're hoping they can sell 400,000 copies of this. Simple as that.
