Entertaining your family and friends can seem daunting, especially if you’re not one to usually throw parties or events. Free to play and a surefire crowd-pleaser, Family Feud is the perfect game to get everyone involved in the fun. But with so many questions to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which questions are appropriate and engaging. We’ve compiled a list of survey questions and answers to get your game night started.

What is Family Feud?

Family Feud is a game that pits two teams against each other to see who can guess the most popular answers to survey questions. This game originated in the 1970s and has since been revived in the form of the game show most viewers know today, hosted by Steve Harvey.

Choose Your Teams

Your game night won’t be complete without assembling two teams. If you’re playing with friends then this step should be easy, but if you’re using family you’ll have to break them into two teams based on age and gender. To make this task a little easier you can also mix adults and children of different ages so long as the overall makeup of the teams is the same.

Formulate the Questions

Now that you’ve chosen your teams, the next step is to come up with your survey questions. These questions should be designed to be answered by the general public, so asking questions about things that are specific to you and your group is discouraged. Some popular questions may include:

• Name something people do to relax

• Name a type of animal

• Name a type of car

• Name something people keep in the refrigerator

• Name a famous television show

• Name a type of tree

• Name a common video game

• Name something people do when they’re bored

• Name a type of food

• Name something that people get anxious about

• Name something you do when you’re feeling down

• Name a type of clothing

• Name a type of flower

• Name an emotion

• Name a type of music

• Name a popular sport

• Name a popular website


The teams must now answer the questions by guessing the most popular responses. This is done by first having each team brainstorm answers and writing them down on the board. At the end of the allotted time, the team with the most popular answers will win the round.

The Tie-Break Round

If at the end of the game no team has a clear majority of points, the game will move into the tie-break round. For this round, the host will read a single question and give the teams a predetermined amount of time to answer.

Final Round

The final round of the game will be called the Fast Money Round. In this round, the team that won the game will have two players come up to the board and answer five questions in succession. The players will have sixty seconds to answer all five questions and they can’t confer with their team, so they’re on their own. The team will then win a predetermined number of points if they earn at least two out of five points.


Each time a team gives a correct answer, they will be awarded a certain number of points, typically ranging from a hundred to three hundred points depending on the type of question. The team with the most points after all the rounds are completed will win the game.
