Birthday Family Feud

Another way to celebrate the guest of honor is to play this funversion of family feud, but instead of random survey question use funstuff about the birthday guy or girl. Divide players into teams of fiveor six. Teams must try to name all the answers to a certain topic aboutthe birthday person (see examples below).

SET UP: You’ll need to think of at least 6 differentcategories to play. Depending on the topic questions you choose, youmay need to get help from the birthday person to get the answers. Becreative and come up with some fun topics . Topics can be anything,just try and have between 4-8 answers for each topic. Some examples:

Just fill in the blank with the birthday persons name.

  • 6 things you’ll be sure to find in _________ purse ( or wallet)
  • Top 7 favorite bands
  • Top 5 items that we wish __________ would finally throw away
  • Top 6 people on ____________ speed dial
  • Top 4 guilty pleasures
  • Top 4 movies that made ____________ cry/laugh

Write each separate answer on a strip of poster board. Beforeeach category is called out, pin all the answers for that category ontoa corkboard facing backwards so the contestants can see them (or tapethem up on a wall). Make sure you know which answer is where.

TO PLAY: To start the game flip a coin. Whichever teamwins the coin toss can choose to play or pass.Starting with the teamthat won the toss up, have each player give an answer to the category.They cannot have any help from their other team mates. If they answercorrectly turn over that answer, if it is wrong the team receives astrike. Now it’s the next players turn.

The players take turn answering the question until they get themall correct OR receive three strikes. If they get them all correct thenthey receive two points for each answer and you move onto the nextcategory (and the next team starts). If they receive three strikes,then other team has ONE chance to steal . They can discuss it togetherand then offer one final answer. If that answer is on the board thenthey win all the points showing for that category. If it is not then thefirst team gets to keep all the points they earned and the rest of theanswers are revealed. After move on to the next category starting withthe other team.

Personal Jeopardy

Set up a jeopardy game but instead of random trivia questions use funquestions about the guest of honor. Choose 5-6 different categoriesand write 7 questions for each one. Categories can be things such as,career, childhood, hobbies, personality, and lifestyle. If it is a bigmilestone birthday like a 50th or 60th birthday party you can make eachcategory about a different decade of their life.

One way to set up the game is to use a different poster board foreach category. Write the category title on each poster board and hangthem on the wall. Tape each index card on the poster board that itbelongs to. Make sure you tape the cards where the questions face in.You can assign point values for each question depending how hard theyare. Write these on the flip side of the cards where all the payers canview them.

TO PLAY Divide guest into three teams. Give everyone abuzzer (this could be a bell). Play just like jeopardy. You can evenmake some questions daily doubles!
