Welldone to Namida and Simon for second place. :thumbsup:

(That was sort of close with a lot of the answers) I can sort of see why the SuperLem is an unpopular skill as well, it can be a nightmare to get it just right. My brother loved the superlem skill but to be fair he's not really a lemmings fan as such but I've been trying to get him into the lemmings as they are great games. I thought people were going to go for Graham's number for the big number as that's my name, well my name is spelt Graeme. Googol is a good answer as well but only one went for it.  Funny enough that I actually wanted to be a police officer in the past but that wasn't to be.  I can understand the reasoning with the easter egg, chocolate egg scenario.

haven't been checking the forum regularly and didn't even realize these were still going on. I'll have to enter the next one.

I'm surprised, but not disappointed, to see a million win the large number question!
I'd like to host a round here, but I am quite busy this year, so I fear that maybe it will take me several weeks until I have time to compile the results... although I guess that that would give more people time to notice a new round being on. :P

I know we've just had a round with only standard scoring questions, but I don't often enjoy inverse scoring questions, and special scoring questions are hard to calculate scores for, and I'd rather not risk getting stuck with that.
So here's 10 more standard scoring questions!

Family Feud 2021—Round 4
  • Name a line/theme of LEGO products
  • Name something you take with you on vacation
  • Name a Flash game
  • Name a language other than English that you'd like to speak
  • What is your favourite colour?
  • Name a type/species of flower
  • Name a Disney film
  • Name a genre of music
  • Name a mythical creature
  • Name a type of vegetable

Enjoy!

Well, it seems that round 4 was a lot harder than I was expecting!
I submitted my own answers too, before seeing the rest, but I don't think it was quite fair, as I reused several questions from rounds hosted on other forums, for which I already knew the answers. So at the end I will also post the leaderboard without my answers counted, for those that mind!

I like to include quotes with the questions, but very few people wrote extra thoughts besides their answers, so I'll just post the clean results instead.

can't believe my mind blanked on "Star Wars" as a popular LEGO; it's the only one I actually know of! I looked up minifigures... didn't see mention of Star Wars...

my favorite color is actually green ;)

you didn't mention my second answer for vegetable; leek :P [only a few people will get that reference]

I wonder if bsmith's answers were jokes? He seems to have purposefully picked unusual or obscure answers...

as I understand the rules (and depending on the host) you can answer with essentially anything even clear nonsense. But importantly the answers dont have to be "honest". Like I didn't answer my true favorite color; cause I know that was likely not the highest.

I did purposely try to pick obscure answers.  That was because of question 3 "Name a Flash game". The Codex immediately sprung to mind so I decided to go all out with weird, but still valid, answers.

The responses to question 1 really surprised me as to how spread out they were.  I was at a minimum expecting "Star Wars" to have a plurality of votes, not just two.  My serious answer would have been Star Wars.

For question 2, I really do take some dollar store puzzle books with me when I go on vacation, particularly if there is a long drive to/from the vacation location.

Question 7, Disney film, was pretty compact compared to how big their catalog is.

Wow, I've done terribly with Family Feud these last couple of rounds! I think I prefer trying to come up with answers that less people would think of :P

I did consider The Lion King for the Disney film. But at least mobius also picked Snow White. :D Inside Out is Pixar. ;P
I found it interesting that almost everyone went for blue in the question part. Did WillLem by chance fall for my cheeky wording of the question? ;D
I wasn't sure whether Japanese would do well at all in this community, but it wasn't bad!
On another forum, 'toothbrush' was by far the winning answer for the vacation question! I'm surprised that nobody else picked it.
I was also expecting a lot more people to think of Lego Star Wars. I guess people weren't thinking about licensed lines at all?
The Flash game question was too hard, probably. I did look up N; was it a coincidence that both mobius and IchoTolot made this answer?
I thought 'Dragon' would also be a good answer for question 9. I wasn't expecting 'Siren' or 'Kraken', although they are perfectly valid answers of course. 'Lemmings' is cute. :P
The vegetable question was also in a round on another forum, and I answered 'potato' then, and I think I was the only one... it would've done a lot better here!
It was fun to host. And lots of submissions! :thumbsup:

Thanks for hosting the feud!

Hunt the Nessy (for question 9, mythical creature) seemed a compelling an answer on Lemmings Forums, surprising that Nessie got only 2 namings. Top answer nonetheless.
