Does anyone know the name of the board game visible on the following picture? Still from Friends S05E11 The image is taken from the eleventh episode of the fifth season of Friends ("The One With All The Resolutions"), at around 4/5 of the episode (17:53 is the exact timestamp of the frame from my version).

The things I thought might help to identify the game:

  • The game seems to have an oval board.
  • There are two small blue UFO-shaped parts (maybe dice poppers?): one on the table and one in the hands of Joey (second guy from the left).
  • There seems to be two different kind of cards involved - in red and blue colors.
  • The box features a cartoonish drawing of a woman and a man and the dominant color seems purple.
  • The game seems to support 5 players - but considering it's a tv show, this might not hold true. I recon yellow, red and blue figures on the board, and it seems that there are two from each color.
  • You mention coloured pieces on the board. There also appear to be two white pieces off the board as well. When I zoom in on the board the pawns appear 'wine bottle' shaped but that is not clear. Commented Oct 26, 2020 at 9:26
  • @StartPlayer The white pieces I think are just the caps of the water bottles, but I may be wrong. But yep, the figures seems 'wine bottle' shaped.

It is Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus. You can recognise the loopy indigo board, the characters on the box, and the red/green card box in this image from the BoardGameGeek page:

an oval-shaped colorful board, a box with a man and a woman on it, and a box of cards with red and green sections
