Don’t waste money on vip pointlesss

First if u wanna play without paying u won’t get to play much because every game u need ticket and u can’t play without any they slowly give u 1 ticket here and there 2nd if you do pay they want 4.99 to be vip but still u get tickets slowly and then even tho u pay vip they want you to spend more money to get tickets with vip and the vip games they offer cost more tickets to play so literally ur just blowing ur money to play games with no prizes no real point in wasting ur money also it’s sooooooooo slow and freezes a lot so u gotta close it out with that I’ll lose tickets to its wackkk

WAY Outdated Answers!

I've been playing this game online for some time now, and frankly give up. Some of the questions are down right stupid and offer the dumbest answers; many just plain outdated. NO ONE uses telephones, typewriters, or wears cufflinks anymore. Also half the questions get recycled into other rounds, and some of those answers get recycled into the Fast Money round.

This title has:

Easy to play/use

Is It Any Good?

This mobile version of the popular game show is entertaining, as long as you don't mind possible privacy issues and missing info for show newcomers. Family Feud Live! features the same premise the TV show has for decades: Players try to guess the top responses people gave to questions. But kids who have never seen the show may not understand that, because there’s no readily available information in the app about how the responses were gathered or how to play. That's a fairly big drawback -- although the game isn’t too hard to figure out, there are some other elements, such as the currency kids are earning, that may be confusing at first for younger players. Not knowing what the responses involve also makes it a little bit less of a learning experience, and could make it harder to play. Kids who understand they’re dealing with popular opinion might submit completely different guesses than ones who don’t.

There are some potential positives; kids may strengthen their vocabulary while playing, the predictive text feature can help them hone their spelling skills, and generally, the game is pretty fun. But the biggest concern is the ability to chat with other users if you log in through Facebook -- which is a big problem. To prevent personally identifiable information from being exchanged, urge your child to play as a guest instead -- or, if you’'e concerned that might lead to a Facebook log in, to maybe not play at all. If you can get past the privacy issues and the lack of info, you'll find a fun gameshow experience in the palm of your hand.

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.
