How to play

The gamemaster writes a numbered series of questions on one piece of paper, and the corresponding answers on another piece of paper. The piece of paper with answers is copied and handed out to the players. The players must then write down what they think the original questions were. Once completed, they hand their guesses back to the gamemaster who reads them out loud, along with the original questions. The results are often interesting.
