How to Play Bible Family Feud
You don't need to set up your game like a real Family Feud game, but it's more fun to play that way if you can.
Setting Up Your Game Space
To start, you'll want to set up a play area that resembles the Family Feud TV show stage.
- You need two long tables or pews, one for each team. The tables should be placed parallel to each other with a few feet between them.
- At one end of the tables, in the center of the space between them, you need a podium. This podium should have a bell or buzzer on it.
- You need a game board that everyone can see. You can create an interchangeable board by taping clear document sleeves horizontally on a large piece of poster board. You can also just use a chalkboard or dry erase board.
- If possible, you want to poll as many people as possible using your game questions. This gives you real data to use for your game and helps determine bonus round point values.
Game Play Rules
You need two teams and one host to play Bible Family Feud. Each team should have at least three players, but can have up to six. The players on one team stand behind one table, while the players on the other team stand behind the opposite table.
- The player at each table who is closest to the podium goes first.
- These two players stand at the podium with one hand behind their backs and one next to the buzzer.
- The host stands behind the podium and asks the first question.
- The first player to buzz in with a correct answer decides if their team plays or passes on the round. The host adds the answer to the board.
- If the team chooses to play, the host and first player head over to the winning team's table.
- Each player down the line takes a turn giving an answer to the same question.
- If the player guesses a correct answer, the host adds it to the board.
- If the player guesses an incorrect answer, the team gets one strike.
- If the players guess all the answers before earning three strikes, they win all the points from the round.
- When the team gets three strikes, they stop giving answers.
- After a team earns three strikes, the opposing team has a chance to steal the points. The team must agree on one answer to give to the starting question.
- If the opposing team gives a correct answer, they get all the points from the round.
- If the opposing team does not give a correct answer, the original playing team gets all the points.
- The main part of the game includes three to five rounds. The first round has six possible answers. Each successive round has one less possible answer. No round should have fewer than three possible answers. You can assign point values to each round or each correct answer.
- The team with the most points at the end wins.
Bonus Round Rules
The winning team from the main rounds now has the chance to earn a special prize. You need five questions for the bonus round and two players from the winning team. If you polled a real audience, the number of people who gave each answer is the point value for that answer. If you did not poll real people, you can assign point values based on which answers you think would be most popular.
- Based on your point values, assign a minimum point value the team needs to earn to win the prize.
- One of the bonus round players has to leave the room or put on some loud music in headphones so they can't hear their teammate's answers.
- The host sets a timer for 30 seconds and starts it after asking the first question.
- The first player shouts out one answer for each question. The goal is to give an answer for all five questions in the time limit.
- The second player now gets a turn to answer the same questions. This player gets 40 seconds to answer because she cannot duplicate an answer given by her teammate. If she duplicates an answer, the host can say, "Try again," and she can give a second answer.
- Add up all the points both players earned. If they earned the minimum amount of points, they win the prize.
