How it works

  1. If a tablet or computer is not available, print the questions and answers single sided and cut them out to make cards.
  2. Split the group into teams of 4 or 5 players.
  3. At the beginning of the round, state the total number of answers to the question, and one player from each team comes forward.
  4. Ask these two players a question.
  5. The first person to respond, either by ringing a bell, by raising their hand or by any other means chosen in advance, attempts to answer the question and win a point for their team.
  6. If the answer is correct, that player's team temporarily wins a point, and is allowed to try to find the other answers to the question.
  7. Ask the question again to the next player on the team. That player cannot consult with their teammates.
  8. If the answer is correct, the team temporarily wins another point. If not, the team gets one strike (like in baseball).
  9. Repeat steps 8 and 9 until one of the following occurs:
    1. The team has given all the correct answers to the question.
    2. The team has gotten three strikes.
  10. If a team finds all the answers, it officially wins all the points accumulated in that round.
    1. If not, the opposing team gets one chance to attempt to find one of the missing answers, but the members of that team can consult with each other.
      1. If the opposing team finds a correct answer, it steals the points accumulated in that round.
      2. If the opposing team fails, the first team keeps its accumulated points.
  11. The person responsible marks the points on the score board.
  12. Repeat steps 4 through 12 for each round of the game.
  13. At the end of the game, the team that scored the most points wins.

Note: For large groups with more than two teams, several games can run at the same time, with one responsible person per game. The questions can be the same or different for each game. Another option is to rotate the teams after each round.
