Philly Family Feud: Delphic’s 2014 Summer Outing

How well do you know Philadelphia? That was the theme of this summer’s quarterly company outing. We trekked across the street to Mad River, an extremely popular Philly college bar, located in our charming Philly suburb of Manayunk.

There was ladderball, plenty of beer, and our new favorite thing, deep fried pretzel bites *drool*. However, the central event of our outing was Delphic’s very own version of Family Feud. Each department battled it out for the title of reigning champions and Wawa gift cards. If you know anything about Philly, you’ll know bragging rights and Wawa money is worth A LOT.

We found this official Family Feud game online, which we borrowed questions from. These questions proved to be pretty challenging since this game was probably from the 1800’s. For a Delphic / local spin on the game, we created a survey and asked our readers, friends, and family to answer. We created a survey of 15 questions and got a good amount of responses. Thank you to all who participated!

Setting Up Your Own Game

 

If you want to set up your own Family Feud game, here’s what you need to know.

  1. Make sure your questions are very specific to avoid a wide range of answers.

  2. Ensure your wording is very clear. We got a couple of people who answered Ben Franklin to our “living famous person from Philadelphia” question.

  3. Do your best to filter miscellaneous results into buckets of popular answers. For instance, “Pretzels” and “Water Ice” can both be considered “Food.”

  4. Let your audience know that any answer to your question is better than nothing. These are opinions, not trivia questions with correct answers.
