A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

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.

Violence
Sex
Language
Consumerism

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.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What 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.

Plus good

I think it's a great game

What's it about?

Family Feud & Friends is supposed to be like the TV show, but played against online opponents. You answer trivia questions that were given to 100 people to see if you can guess the most common answers. The game relies heavily on getting points and coins and then using them for various parts of the game to the point that it overtakes the trivia game in focus.

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.
