Two families, each with two kids and their parents, tell embarrassing stories about each other's lives and then have members of their family guess who told the story.


Round 1Edit

In the first round, host Salley asked each family member a multiple choice question in which one of the answers was predicted by another family member (A typical question would go like this: When you're in a bad mood, do you control it, cry, or take it out on others?). Each correct answer was worth 10 points.

Round 2Edit

This round is where the show got its name. For each family member gave an embarrassing moment that happened to another family member before the show by virtue of a clue. Now it was up to them to match the previously given embarrassing moment. Each matched answer was again worth 10 points.

Round 3Edit

In the final round, each family member lined up behind each other and was asked a series of general questions in which the answers were given the other family members beforehand. Each family had 60 seconds to answer as many questions as possible, and each match was now worth 25 points. The family with the most points at the end of this round wins the game and won a family vacation. The losing team goes home with a consolation prize, and all the kids (win or lose) go home with a prize.


Based on The Family Game by Chuck Barris.
