Questions and answers.
  • A group game for five or more players – the more the merrier. What you need are, for each player, two slips of paper and a pencil.
  • Players are given their papers and pencils. Each player writes down one question on one of the papers, and an answer on the other. A player’s question and answer do not have to be related at all. In fact, more creative and extremely irrelevant questions and answers fit better to the ‘purposes’ of the game.
  • The papers are then collected – keeping the questions and answers in separate bundles. Every player picks one question and one answer. Then the pairs of QnAs are read out one by one.
  • At the end of the round, players vote for their favourite match of question-answer. The writers of those question and answer get one point each.
  • A new round starts with new questions and new answers.
