Family Fortunes Review & Competition

Having watched the show on television I thought I would be a natural because I was always shouting out answers to the TV screen urging the contestants to state what I thought was obvious BUT it’s much trickier than you think when you’re under pressure to come up with the answers for your own team!


It has been a great game to play over the festive holiday, Family Fortunes (RRP £19.99) by Drumond Park is such a simple set up, nothing complicated to worry about so if you want a game you can get stuck right into this is most definitely it!  Although the game is aimed for ages 8+ youngest at 6 was happy to play too, I think he liked having a buzzer to press and the questions usually had something on them he could manage and if not it was fun hearing what he would come up with.  I liked the UH UH sound when you get it wrong, almost worth doing it just to hear the same sound from the show!

As the answers are based on the most popular answers to questions from the show, sometimes you cannot for the life of you guess them correctly!  It is a challenge at times but then the next round of questions you might sail through, I was not well versed in foods you pickle but my mum was a pro.  I like how you all huddle round and try and come up with the answer if the other team does not manage to complete all the answers, it’s a game that gets you working together.

One of you has to play the game show host; I keep allocating that task to hubbie as his maths is better to work out the scores!  But ideally pick someone with lots of presence to make it even more entertaining.

More information and stockists are available on the Drumond Park website

If you would like to win Family Fortunes please fill out the form below by the 20th of January.
