A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Family Feud & Friends wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.
Ease of Play
The game is pretty easy to use. You type answers on a virtual keyboard and, to make it easier, the app will guess what you are starting to type and offer three or four multiple choice options.
Products & Purchases
It costs you two in-game "coins" for every game you want to play. While you earn a free coin every day that you log in, you'll eventually run out unless you either buy more (coin packs run from $2 to $100) or earn more by getting your Facebook friends to join.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Family Feud & Friends is an online multiplayer version of the famous game show. It is designed to be played against Facebook friends, but you can also play against random opponents, whose first names and profile pics you may see (if they have connected the game to their Facebook accounts). There are also in-app purchases built into the game, as you are required to pay two virtual coins each time you play. You can get extra coins by inviting friends to join or by buying them with real money.
Is It Any Good?
The actual game show component of FAMILY FEUD & FRIENDS is great -- it's got fun questions and a sleek, easy interface exactly like that of Ludia's regular offline Family Feud app. But this version is built solely for playing against online opponents — and you don't get to see your opponents taking their turns. Instead, you and your opponent both answer the same set of questions and you see who got more points. With a setup like that, it's more fun to play against computer-controlled families in the offline version. Plus, the whole idea of paying two "coins" for every single game just feels like you're being gouged.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
