Usually, getting on a game show requires you to pass some brainy test, wait in an outrageous line, audition for some fat cat Hollywood producer, and/or send in an audition tape of you showing off your winning personality. The library is giving you a chance to have the game show experience (sans the whole being on television and having a shot at 13th-tier celebrity fame and thousands of prize dollars parts of said experience) without jumping through those hoops.
All you need are four family members and/or friends who are 12 years of age or older and the ability to communicate with another human to sign up your team, and you can compete in BPL’s game of Family Feud on Monday, March 11 at 6:30 PM at the library. While there won’t be any cameras, cash prizes, or Steve Harvey (or even John “Peterman” O’Hurley), you’ll still get all of the survey says-ing, board pointing, hand clapping, pretending-bad-answers-are-good acting, and family frustration fun that comes with the real Feud. True to our brand, many of the survey questions will be book- or library-related. Winners will walk away with prizes and the satisfaction of having vanquished a “rival” family in one of the gentlest ways possible.*
Spots to participate are limited, so if you’d like to play, call the library at 817-249-6632 to sign up. If you’re more of a pacifist and would like to enjoy the festivities without partaking in the feuding, spectators are welcome, too.
*Unlike those nasty blood feuds. If only the Capulets and Montagues had had Richard Dawson around to gather them and ask them to name a reason one might be late to work, things may have played out much more pleasantly for them.
