We went to purchase the new New Zealand edition of Family Feud recently, but sadly it was sold out. As we had promised a new game for family games night we told the kids to pick something else. They chose this one 'Beat the parents' as it was a trivia style board game they wanted and this was as close as they could get to family feud. Reading the box it sounded like it would be a fun enough game, and it was age appropriate for the ages in our family.
Like most board games, it comes with everything you need, and the explanation is relatively straight forward. Parents answer the questions that are aimed at children, and then the children answer the questions that adults should know the answers for. I do not know if I expected more, or the few times we have played it I have been disinterested, but I found it a little boring. My 10 year old daughter really liked it though, especially if she won lol although sometimes I really felt like she was cheating - not sure how she could possibly do that though haha
So basically, you answer questions, and move across the board, and first team to get to the other end wins. That is it really. Nothing overly exciting, just a bit of fun competition and building knowledge. The questions are possibly to easy, so maybe that was why I got bored with it. However, being bored while playing board games with your kids is all a part of being a parent lol The price is ok, though I probably wouldn't pay more than $20 - $25 for it, now I know what it is like.

In true voodoo style, Vince encounters and defeats quirky monsters and villains ... by kicking his own butt! By racing under a falling safe, jumping into a high-speed blender, or leaping under falling rubble, Vince is sure to defeat his enemies—all while managing to escape completely unscathed.
