Rules- or make up your own
  • Divide into groups
  • Each group gets their chance to answer a series
    of questions. Each correct answer gets 1 point.
    The group with the most points wins!!
  • If a group answers correctly, then they score a
    point and are given another question. A group
    has the opportunity to answer up to 3 questions
    total if they get them all right. Once their
    turn has expired, the next group is given the
    opportunity to answer up to 3 questions.
  • If a group misses a question, the question is
    passed to the next group. If this group answers
    it correctly, then it becomes their turn and they
    have the opportunity to answer up to 2 additional
    questions. If this group misses the question,
    however, the question goes to the next group. If
    that group misses it, the question goes to the
    next group. The answer is not revealed until
    every group has had a chance to answer. A new
    round is then begun, with a different group
    beginning each new round.
