  • How is it Played?

    This game will follow the traditional rules and pace of the hit game show, ‘Family Feud.’ NRWA will select 100 random people to participate in a survey to select game show questions and answers.

    The competition will consist of three (3) games with a total of four (4) teams. Each game will be played using two (2) teams consisting of five (5) individuals on each team.

    The winner of each semi-final match will advance to the final game.

    Your team MUST be entered by your State Rural Water Association. Teams MUST be present to compete. 

    Once all team entries have been received, a drawing will be held to determine the four (4) teams who will compete in the competition. The competition will be a four (4) team bracket play format, in which #1 plays #4 and #2 plays #3. The first team drawn will occupy the #1 position, the second team drawn will occupy the #2 position, the third team drawn will occupy the #3 position and the fourth team drawn will occupy the #4 position.

  • Who can Play?

    Teams MUST be present to compete.

    These teams will be made up of individuals who are currently employed by the state association, board members of the state association, or individuals who are employees or board members of a rural or municipal water/wastewater system that is a current member of the state rural water association.

    Non-eligible participants include the following:  NRWA Staff, National board members, members of their immediate families, attendees registered as “spouse”, “guest”, VIP, Speaker or anyone under the age of 18. 

  • Semifinal Match

    The semi-final games will consist of 3 rounds of match play to determine the winner. Each Match will begin with one individual from each team stepping to the front counter for a “face-off” question, which will be asked by the MC, the first person to ring the buzzer and give a listed answer will have the option to pass or play. If the individual who buzzed first does not turn over an answer listed on the survey, the opposing player will be given a chance to answer, if their answer is among those on the board, then their team will be given the option to pass or play.  In the event neither individual answers a question that appears on the survey, the current question will be discarded, and another will be asked with same schedule as above until there is a correct answer given and game proceeds with one of the team’s starting. If the winner of the face-off chooses to pass on the round, the opposing team now has the chance to play first for the points of that round.

    The option to play the round consists of the host asking the same question to each of the five members of the “playing” team. Each listed answer will result in the same question being asked to the next member of the team until all answers on the board have been given. If all the team’s answers are listed on the board and the board is “cleared” the team wins the match and moves on to the final game.

    Any answer given that is not on the board will result in a “strike”. Three (3) non-listed answers results in three (3) strikes. When this occurs, the opposing team will get the chance to win the match by giving one (1) listed answer. This one answer can be collaborated by all members of the team. Once the final answer is decided upon by the team, one member of the team will give it to the host. If that answer is listed on the board, the team wins the match and moves on to the final game. If the answer is not on the board, the team loses the match and the opposing team wins and moves on to the final game.

    The winner of each semifinal match will advance to the final game.
