About the activity
The first player thinks of a place or object and comes up with a clue. They say to the other players, “I’m thinking of something / somewhere that _______.” For example, if they player was thinking of ‘trousers’, they would say, “I’m thinking of something that you can wear.”
Each of the other players then takes it in turn to ask a question, trying to determine what the first player could be thinking of. The questions can only be answered with ‘yes’ or ‘no’, so players will have to think carefully about the type of question they ask.
The guessers can only ask 20 questions between them. The aim of the game is to guess the mystery word before your 20 questions run out!
Whoever guesses correctly gets to be the next person to think of a word. If the players run out of questions, the player should reveal the mystery word and gets another go!
