Family Fortunes favourites

I used to love this show when I was younger. It didn't take much effort to watch, and was sometimes almost fun. It was fairly interactive in our house; at least when my dad was watching it was. There were some classic moments; occasional moments of outstanding inspiration to edge the game, but more often priceless moments of stunning error to let it slip away.
