What is Family Feud, Anyway?

Family Feud is an American television game show created by Mark Goodson. While its original run lasted from 1976 to 1988, the show has been revived twice since.

Over the years, the show has experienced a number of different hosts, including big names like Louie Anderson, Richard Karn, John O'Hurley, and—as mentioned—Steve Harvey.

In fact, it was under Harvey's tenure that the show experienced a boom in Nielsen ratings, placing it among the top three most-popular syndicated television shows in the United States.

Today, the show can be enjoyed in over 50 different international markets, including Indonesia's Super Family 100, England's Family Fortunes, and South America's very own 100 Argentinos Dicen.

It's also adapted into other formats, including board games, interactive films, and video games for folks to enjoy.

Important Rules for Your Family Feud Game Night

It doesn't take much to organize a fun game night, but there are a few rules you'll need to learn if you want to play Family Feud.

Traditionally, the game features two competing families, though you're free to break the group up however you want.

Each must work together to provide correct answers to specific survey questions, starting with the most popular responses. The only thing you have to make sure of here is that each team contains the same number of players.

Once you've established your two teams and elected a host, you'll need to find something to use as your buzzer. For this, you can use a free app online, a squeaky dog toy, or anything else of your choosing.

The next step revolves around electing your team captains. These two individuals will go head to head in the initial "face-off" round. The first team captain to buzz in with the most popular response will lead the round.

The rest of the team will also take turns guessing the remaining responses. The opposing team only gets an opportunity to participate here if the other team receives three strikes for failing to provide the correct answer.

Traditionally, answers are solicited from 100 survey participants, with each worth one point for every person who gave them. But if you want to play Family Feud at home, you have a few different ways of determining the number of points all the answers are worth.

For one, you can browse the web for questions that actually appeared on the show along with the number of points they attracted. Or—and maybe more easily—you can assign your own point values to the questions you encounter.

However you decide to proceed is up to you. Just remember, whoever has the most points by the end of your final round will be considered the winning team. Best of luck!

Supplies Needed to Play Family Feud

  1. Scorecard
  2. Buzzer
  3. List of questions (and answers)
  4. 3-5 players per team
  5. Host

What is the Fast Money Round?

A typical game of Family Feud contains three normal rounds. If you want to tally up your points after that and call it a day, that's fine. But those who want to get even more out of the game will probably want to participate in the famous "fast money" round.

To get started, the winning team must select two individuals to answer as many questions as they can in 60 seconds. One person leaves the room while the other takes their turn.

Both members of the team will be asked the same list of questions. Should the second player provide a duplicate response, they must come up with another answer on the spot.

Once the round is finished, the host adds up all the points the players have scored. If the total amounts to over 200, they can add it to their total score and declare themselves the ultimate champions!
