How to make a Family Feud game in Keynote

 

I wanted a ‘family feud’ style gameshow in keynote, but it was a bit complicated trying to make the right answer appear.

It worked out well. I’ve updated the files for Keynote 6.

Once it’s set up this can help block unsuitable content from reaching any computer, iphone, ipad etc connected to your internet. This approach can be used at home, school, or the workplace.
