How to play

Each player is given two slips of paper. On one slip they write a question. On the other slip they write a single word that is not related to the question. On the back of both slips they write their initials. The slips are collected into two separate piles and shuffled. The players then take a slip from each pile, making sure they do not get their own slips. One-by-one the players read aloud the slip with the question, and then answer it in one sentence that includes the single word on the other slip. This game tests the creativity of the players, at times pushing their imaginations past the breaking point in order to answer random questions with random words.


After the players write their questions and single words, the slips of paper are collected, shuffled and redistributed back to the players. Here are the results of the first round.
