Family Feud Strikeout Card Game: Rules and Instructions for How to Play

Objective of Family Feud Strikeout

The objective of Family Feud Strikeout is to be the first team to acquire four cards.


  • Choose one player to be the host/MC. They will be responsible for reading the questions on the cards and determining whether the teams provide correct answers.
  • The rest of the players divide into two teams. One is the Red team and the other is the Blue team.

Playing Family Feud Strikeout

Each round begins with the host drawing a new card from the deck. They will hold the card so the other players can’t see it.

To start each round a Face Off is played. The host reads the survey question from the top of the card to the other players. One player from each team then tries to shout out an answer as quickly as possible. Each team gets to submit one answer, but they have to be different.

The host then compares the two answers by looking for them on the card’s chart. Should one or both of the teams provide an answer that is not on the card, they will receive a Strike indicator. The team that provides the answer with the higher number next to it, gets to start the round.

For this round the players have to name card games. The first team answered Poker and the second team answered Blackjack. As Poker has a higher score, the first team will get to make the next guess.

The team that gets to start the round then comes up with another answer to the survey question. If the answer is not on the card, the team receives a Strike.

Receiving A Strike in Family Feud Strikeout
The current team guessed Go Fish. As Go Fish is not on the card, they will receive a strike.

Play then passes to the other team. The round continues with the two teams taking turns providing answers.

End of Round

A round can end in one of two ways.

If one of the teams provide the last remaining answer for the card (all of the answers printed on the card have been given), they will win the round. They will take the card as a point for winning the round.

All Answered Provided
