Family Fortunes style game


Split the group into two teams (4-8 in each team works well)


Position a desk at the front of the room and call down players from each team one at a time so that two opposing team members are facing each other. Shouting out names or raising hands (instead of buzzers) ask them to give an answer from a list such as those below.

If the top answer is given that person can decide whether their team plays or passes for the other team to play. If an answer is given below the top answer then the other person has a chance to get the top answer. When a team plays, then all members give answers one by one, aiming to get all of the answers for the particular question. 100 points are on offer if all questions are answered or failure to get all the answers results in the other team scoring.

After a certain amount of time, the team with the highest score has won, and you can ask the team captain to select one member of their team to play the final challenge. One person should leave the room while the other answers say 5 questions, then the other person comes back in to answer the same questions (if they give the same answer as the previous person for any question they should be asked for another). The final questions should be timed- say 30 seconds for the first and 40 seconds for the second person. It is good to ask questions relevant to your company or industry for this part. Have the answers pre-prepared with scores out of 100.
