How to play Family Feud at home

Do you prefer to make your own family feud game?  Here are some tips and instruction to make you home made version just like the TV show:

1. Have the questions and answers ready

The survey questions are what makes Family Feud the game show that it is! Before the game, you’ll need to pre-select questions for your survey. If you plan on conducting the survey yourself, you’ll want to find a website that can help you send the surveys out to all the departments at your work.

Once you’ve received all the responses, you can use the same point system the game uses. If you don’t want to do the legwork for the surveys and the answers, there may be websites you can utilize to get your game show content.

2. Display the game

Once your team joins the Zoom call and is ready to play, someone will need to showcase the game board for everyone. You can use an online Family Feud template or create the game board on your own. Since you’re playing virtually, you’ll want one individual to share their screen on Zoom. You can use a projector, template, or a whiteboard for the game board.

3. Divide the group into teams

Next, you’ll need to divide your team members into teams. You can do this as department vs. department, or if you want individuals that don’t usually connect daily to get to know each other, you can mix the teams up! Try to keep the teams in groups of 4-6. One individual will also need to play as the host of the game.

4. Start playing!

It’s time for the real fun to finally begin! To decide what team will get to play first, you’ll have one player from each team come to the podium. The host will ask a question and the player who hits the buzzer first gets to answer. If they guess the higher answer, they get to decide if they want to play or pass.

As you know, the point of the game is to guess the response with the highest amount of points. One team guesses at a time and gains points for their team. If they guess incorrectly three times, it’s time to move on to the other team. There's a time limit - so they'll need to think fast! Everyone will only get 15-25 seconds each to think of a response.

The other team has one opportunity to steal their points with one answer. If they can't guess the correct word, the original team keeps their points. The rounds continue until all of the answers have been guessed.

You can play as many rounds as you choose! The original version has roughly four rounds.

5. Don’t forget to play Fast Money!

Fast Money is a part of Family Feud where two members of the winning team have to provide answers to five questions in 25 seconds or less. They need to get at least 200 points to win Fast Money.

6. Raise the stakes

Adding a prize into the mix is a great way to generate excitement and get your colleagues excited to play. Consider a gift card, extra vacation day, happy hour, or a free lunch.
