Last week, CBC/Radio-Canada, Fremantle and Spin Master with Imagination Games announced the launch of a new board game inspired by the game show, “Family Feud Canada.” It is now available in English and French exclusively at Walmart Canada stores. “As a Canadian-based, leading children’s entertainment company we are proud to partner with Walmart Canada and CBC/Radio-Canada to bring the exciting, race against the clock trivia of FAMILY FEUD CANADA into board game form for families and friends to enjoy,” said Jeffery Cunningham, SVP and GM of Canada, Spin Master.
The release of the Canadian version of the board game represents an extension of Fremantle’s successful line of Family Feud games with versions also available in the U.S. with Spin Master and Australia with Imagination Games. With its recent development following the successful launch of the Family Feud Canada television show on CBC last fall, the Canadian board game features hundreds of survey questions and a Fast Money Bonus Round. “The ‘Family Feud Canada’ board game extends the show experience into homes, and offers families a fun way to stay entertained and connected during these times when we are all spending more time at home than ever before," said Justin Huck, Manager, Merchandise Licensing & Affiliate Programs, CBC & Radio-Canada Media Solutions.
"Family Feud Candada" will return with 104 new episodes this fall, airing Mondays to Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. on CBC TV and the CBC Gem streaming service. Each episode features two Canadian families competing to guess the most popular answers to fun, family-friendly survey-type questions based on responses from a sample of Canadians. New family auditions are now being accepted.
Family Feud is one of television's longest-running and top-rated game shows watched by audiences worldwide. Launched in December 2019 and hosted by comedian Gerry Dee, the first season showed 62 Canadian families compete from communities all over the country, reaching 2.6 million viewers in Canada each week with an average audience of 518,000 per episode four nights each week, including 30% in the 25-54 demographic. First introduced in the U.S. in 1976, the US version of Family Feud has aired in 87 territories across all seasons and 67 territories have made local versions of this much-loved game show format.
