Best for: 2 up to about 8 players.
What you need: Just two or more players.
How to play: The point of the game is to hold a conversation using only questions. Players take turns asking questions to each other, and the first person to say a statement is out. The questions don’t have to make sense or logically respond to one another; the trick is just to get another player to fall into the habit of automatically answering a question. So a sample game between Ian and Lilly might go something like this:
IAN: Why is the sky blue?
LILLY: What are you doing?
IAN: Where are you going?
LILLY: What time is it?
IAN: Where is my hairbrush?
LILLY: Where do you think it is?
IAN: Wouldn’t you like to know….dang it!
LILLY: Haha! I win!
(Ian just said a statement, so he loses.)
With more than two players, you can take turns asking questions in a circle, or players can ask questions specifically to other players, in any order.
This is a great game to play while killing time in the car, on a bus, waiting in line…you get the idea. So go ask some questions!
