Can you name a really unpleasant way to wake someone up? Now, can you name the really unpleasant way to wake someone up that was the most popular answer among Americans who participated in the survey? That is the kind of trick that you’ll have to manage to win Cardinal’s Platinum Edition Family Feud board game. Gather your group, choose a host and divide into teams. The host is tasked with keeping the game moving by reading questions, deciding who was the quickest to signal, handing out strikes when necessary and revealing who gave the highest-rated answer. Players get to participate in three Face Off rounds and a bonus Fast Money round in their quest to accumulate points by being the best at coming up with what the survey said. Failure to offer an answer that is on the list results in a strike, and three strikes give the opposing team a chance to steal. When the four rounds are finished, points are tallied to determine the highest score and the winner.

However, play goes much more smoothly when you have at least three participants so that you have someone to handle the hosting duties.
