Make your Own Family Feud Game for the Classroom with this PowerPoint Template

I just found this wonderful PowerPoint template that is already set up to create your Family Feud game. You can easily use the PPT template to add your own questions and answers and then play the Family Feud with your classes. It (and many more like it) can be found at http://freebies.about.com/od/teacherfreebies/tp/family-feud-powerpoint-templates.htm
This is a great way to test your students' understanding around a topic at the start, middle or end of a unit of work.
These types of games take a long time to make and it is great that there is already one made to help all of us use ICT in our classrooms.
