About Lunar New Year:
Lunar New Year is the first day of a new year as marked by a Lunar Calendar. It is celebrated in many Asian countries as one of the most important festivals of the year. Traditionally, the festival was a time to honor deities as well as ancestors. Now, it is more of a time for Chinese families to come together, and to enjoy a reunion dinner as they begin the new year. Join us CSA as we enjoy a sit-down dinner as well as cultural performance in celebration of this wonderful and significant holiday!
CSA is proud to present a very special CSA Family Feud!!
WHAT IS FAMILY FEUD?
A loved American television game show, Family Feud features two families competing to name the most popular responses to survey questions in order to win cash and prizes.
HOW TO PLAY CSA FAMILY FEUD?
- STEP 1: By now CSA community has already filled out a survey!
- STEP 2: The survey results will be gathered and answers are put accordingly.
- STEP 3: On the actual game night, family members will have to try to get the closest answer to the question.
FOR EXAMPLE: Players might get a question that asks "What is your favorite city in China?". Players will have to think of what the survey says. Each answer will have a different score according to the results of the survey. If, however, player's answer is not one of the answer options, the player will get a strike. If the player gets 3 strikes without getting all the answers, the opposing family has the chance to answer and to steal the points.
- 1st place: Winning Family gets a gift card to JaHunger!!
- Best Participating Raffle: Best participating families will be entered for a raffle to win two 20% off Gift Card to Chongqing House!!
