Family Fued Playa Style

Family Fued Playa Style

Postby Clar-i-ty » Tue Feb 08, 2011 12:42 pm

So I just turned on daytime TV to Family Feud. When I was a kid I use to imagine being on that show. Now maybe we all can be...on the Playa.

Think of it: Campers Feud. Camps come play the game. Someone takes a bunch of surveys about Burning Man type stuff: top 10 costumes you're sick of seeing on the playa; Barbie Death vs. Booby Bar; Pygmalion vs. Sparkle Ponies; oh the possibilities

Set up Stadium bleachers. Get a creepy host that kisses everybody. Good fun.

Set forth here for your consideration and implementation. Sorry kids, I'm off the playa this year. Thus, my new tag line below.

Never thought I'd say this on Eplaya, but that's a good/fun idea.

So potential survey questions?

How many condoms does the average newby burner think they should bring?

How about just simplifying that one: how often does a virgin think they're going to get laid?

Other questions:

Other than water, what is the one thing always on you?

What are the bathrooms called, other than porta-potties?

we may need "hippie/non hippie" games, then.

I can see very different answers above:

I stopped into a camp back in 08 that had family feud set up and running. They had a couple of teams going and so I didn't get a chance to play. I did get a shot of their chile infused vodka, and that just about took me down for the night. Never have had anything that spicy in my life.
It's going to be alright.

A hundred people were surveyed, we're looking for the top 5 answers on the board to the following question:

What is the salted meat of choice on the Playa?

Floating Game Show

Postby grape » Thu Feb 10, 2011 9:37 am

Ah Memories of BM past. The float around an old man like a chili bean fart.
I had a guy with a push cart (like an icecream cart) stop by my camp in '98 and was playing a running game of Jeopardy with made up answers. It was funny until someone got mad & then it was hilarious.

Some survey question ideas:

How many gallons of water did you enter the city with?

On a scale of 1 to 100, 1 being yellow and 100 being clear, what color was your pee last time you urinated?

Which of the ten principles can you remember? (just the first one to come to mind)

What is your favorite art instillation out this year?

Favorite daytime drink?

Favorite nightime drink?

How many people do you think are in attendance?

Where are you?

Are you wearing pants?

Those questions are stupid. Here, try these

1) What kind of barnyard animal would Larry Harvey most likely bugger?

2) Whose eyes are most dialated and why?

3) Which of these lovely sirens is really a man?

4) Jiffy Lube, Astropups, Gigsville. Well?

5) Which art vehicle would you most likely fall off of in a mushroom stupor?

6) Fizzball or Fizbin?

And what are these 10 principles of which you speak?

So just how "improper" and outright "naughty" was your education?...And where did you get it?
