Family Feud Game for Showers & Parties

Family Feud Game Boards

If you are looking for an upbeat shower or party game, look no further. At a bridal shower for my brother and his fiance, we played the classic game of Family Feud. Prep work took some time….especially considering I had to DVR and skim through many episodes in search of topics that relate to the couple’s interests. (I did finally make up some of the questions/answers after much internet research!) But having questions related to the couple made the game more interesting and an opportunity for guests to learn about them.

Guests had the option of playing as a family member or to simply be a member of the studio audience. We played the game just like the TV show minus the final round. And, I made sure to have the Family Feud Theme Song for added fun. A couple of our questions included: Something People Run For (because this couple met when the bride-to-be was running) and Top 9 Items to Take Camping (this couple loves the outdoors).

As to preparing the boards, yep, it takes some time. I put the answer covers on with poster puddy. It seemed the easiest. When we played this game at a church youth group night years ago, a techy volunteer created a computerized version of the game for us. Very cool if you can manage it. No big screen for us here, just an easel with the game boards.

One thing you do need is a corny host. Yes, this is my husband wearing a blue leisure suit, some gold chains and a crazy wig. If only you could have seen him enthusiastically jogging in as the music blared and his name was announced, giving high fives to all family members. I love that man!

Yep, that’s my husband!

This game is perfect for a mixed shower! The bad part: not everyone gets to play the game. The good part: not everyone has to play the game. The best part: all the laughter and friendly competition!

Ouija Boards

by charlesgeorgetaylo

Before my cousin Sally and I started playing Show and Tell with a twist of Truth or Dare, we were Ouija Board junkies. Perhaps that typewriter of the devil was what eventually led to our sin of incest. I considered the time spent with our hands gliding over the playing board as godly.
We carried that magical board around with us in October, 1984 like little league players with a stack of baseball trading cards.
On Halloween eve, Sally invited me to her house and bedroom and we tested the magic of the Milton Bradley game in a new environment. We had only played the game in my family’s basement and no real magic had taken place there. In her bedroom, all hell broke loose.
Sally lit a candle and we sat on her bed with our legs crossed in Indian style. If ever there...

Fort Lone Tree, Capitan New Mexico

by Thechums

We love this place and you will too. Fort Lone Tree, Capitan
(say Cap - eee - tan) New Mexico. Our son attended summer camp there. It was started by a couple with a strong faith-based plan, and the place has some support from various faith groups, but demonstration of faith or a linkage to faith is not a requirement. We rented the place for a family retreat a year ago and it was just fantastic.
The fort is 10 miles up a dirt road at Capitan Mountain. It is built like an old-west fort with stockade fencing, and all log contruction. Each corner of the stockade has a cabin-tower. Each tower has 4 bunkrooms, each bunkroom has 10 bunks and bathroom. It can sleep up to 160 guests. When we used the place we had 22 people; we put the girls in one bunkroom, the boys in another,...
