Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

A Family Fortunes board game? Our survey said … great! This is an exciting game, based on the ever-popular, long running television programme of the same name, aimed at players aged eight years to adult. Different games can be played according to the number of players, either by two players or two teams. The aim is to give the most popular answers from a list of amusing questions.

The game comes attractively boxed showing compere Les Dennis on set, and it should provide hours of fun. A true family game than can be enjoyed by anyone from 8 to 80 years old. --Susan Naylor

Contents: 2 packs of cards bearing questions and more than 1000 popular answers; special writing pads; pencils; a timer(egg-timer style); and the famous Family Fortunes "wrong answer" sound-effect gadget. There is also an excellent and comprehensive instruction pamphlet explaining rules and scoring which is well set out and easy to follow.

Product Description

For all you out there in TV land, the nation's most popular family game show can be played in the comfort of your own home! Based on the long running TV show which began in 1980 and ran until 2002 with a revival in 2006, Family Fortunes is a sensationally addictive game. Entertaining and fun, it provides the most popular answers from a list of humorous questions. Questions include:-Name something that always needs filling up?Name something that gets smaller as you use it?Name something that is hard to keep clean?Name something you're afraid to try even though it seems fun?Contents: Two NEW sets of cards Special writing pad Four pencils Sand timer The infamous Family Fortunes wrong answer 'Uh-Uh' sound module. The only thing missing is Les Dennis himself...but who needs him?Age 8 to Adult2 Players or 2 TeamsDid you know that Family Fortunes was based on the American game show Family Feud. The difference in the show title is because the producers thought the word "feud" too confrontational in the UK cultural context.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Game!! 13 Dec 2006
I got this last year for a Christmas present, and my family and I played it over and over again! It's such a laugh, so much fun, and a real team game. One person can play host, and then there are two teams.

It's best to play when there are lots of you. It gets you playing as a team and is a real laugh. Also the classical incorrect buzzer is a laugh too - my little brother seemed to enjoy that more than the actual game! Any age can enjoy it - from 10 and up.

I would recommend this to anyone wanting a good team game - you can play it individually too - it's different, funny and gets everyone involved.

Great game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Family Fortunes Review 7 Jan 2004
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I recently bought this for the traditional family game on christmas day night, we played two teams of 7 which was ok. The game has 4 packs of question cards to answer we played for about 3 hours and only managed to get through 3/4 of one pack. The game is just like off the tv where each teams selects one contestant to answer the first question then whoever wins takes control of the game, the box also contains the famous incorrect answer buzzer which was a whole lot of fun, I recommend this game to anyone from the ages of 10.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun 12 Feb 2005
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a good game that is good value for money in that it takes a long time to get through all the cards. Its great fun guessing what the "average english citizen" would say when asked on the spot (because that is definitely not always the most obvious answer!). A little time consuming in handing cards and answer sheets back and forth to check answers and take turns but its easy enough to drop those rules if you want to. I'd recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Actually fun family activity 13 Jan 2011
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Purchased for family of 8, aged 14-52 and we love it. Brillant fun for an older family. So much so we play it when we have guests. What makes it grat fun is the competitiveness, but strategy and intelligence does not mean you are necessarily going to win, which makes it a fairer playing field. The game results in lots of confusion over my father and mothers brillantly hilarious obsque answers, and lots of shoutings and exclaims from the rest of us. As a family we have a lot of games, but most to be honest are boring and monotonous this is our favourite by far.

The whole family enjoyed this game last Christmas, the rules enclosed are really hard to work out but we just played the way we know the game. Little buzzer adds to the fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very silly, but a good way to spend an evening with the kids
They especially liked the sound effect button. We got for 10 which is fine given that it's really just a set of question cards.
