Our Christmas Family Feud game was inspired by the hit game show and turned into a Interactive PowerPoint game that includes printable Host Cards. Our version is called Friendly Feud! This download makes it oh so easy and fun for you to be able to create a game show experience to play with your friends, family, groups, schools, scouts, etc.
It includes 8 survey-style interactive questions and answers that each are themed around Christmas. It also has a fantastic finale spin Lightening Round!
To complete the game show vibe and coordinate the theme we also included fun game sounds and the well known intro theme song.
The video below is a sneak peek sample of the game design. I like to call my version Friendly Feud, instead of Family Feud, but it is played almost the exact same way as the beloved classic game show to include the theme tune we all know and love.
In this Christmas version I have added extra little touches such as the holiday color scheme. The wreath logo, and some fun and festive sound effects to represent the season and other details such as instead of players getting big red X strikes when they get an answer wrong, in my version when a player calls out an answer that isn't on the board the host will click on one of the green dots on the right hand side of the screen and a sad elf will appear crying "Oh No!". If a team gets three elves then the other team gets a chance to steal the points just like in the original Family Feud.
This game was created on PowerPoint and you will need to have that program (2013 or newer) in order to play it. If you don't have this program you can download a free monthly trial version of PowerPoint from the Microsoft website.
This game is most amazing if you have a smart TV and a laptop. You simply hook your laptop up to your TV to create, what I like to call, the full game show experience. The host can control the board from their laptop, while all the action is there for all to see on the big screen!
This download also comes with printable host cards. These cards walk the host through game play and tell them what number to click on to reveal the answers that players call out. The cards are sequenced and so easy to follow even for those with no previous Family Feud knowledge.
Friendly Feud game does not include a fast money round like the game show Family Feud does. Instead Friendly Feud has what we call the Lightening Round!
This is played at the end of the game as one last chance to earn some additional points for your team. In the Lightening Round one player from each team is chosen to compete. Both players get 30 seconds (fun timer is included on the right of the board) to answer five survey questions by choosing from the answers on the Lightening Round board (see below). Better Answers are worth more points, some answers are worth zero.
When a player chooses their answer the host click on that answer and it will disappear revealing it's point value. After both players have completed the Lightening round then the points they earned are added to the total points their team earned for the entire game and whichever team has earned the most points gets to claim victory!
If you've watched Family Feud you know that to take control of the board one player from each team face off and try to be the first to buzz in with an answer to the survey question. Here are some fun options to create a buzzer for your Friendly Feud game:
REAL SIMPLE: When it is time to have two players battle for their team to get control of the board have them sit across from each other at a small table. Place a circle in the middle. The first person who slaps their hand down on it after the question is asked gets to answer first.
REAL BUZZERS: If your family likes playing games having real buzzers will come in handy not just for this Christmas Family Feud Game, but for all kinds of other family fun time. They have some really cool ones on Amazon.com.
