Friends & Mentors

Team up and face down in a friendly trivia match.


  • Questions and answers (search the internet for ones suitable for your group)
  • 2 bells or other noise makers (for team buzzers)


Participants will be scattered in an area facing the leader, with enough space between each other.


  1. Divide the group into two teams.

  2. One member of each team faces the other in a face-off as the teacher reads a question.
  3. The team that buzzed in with the correct answer has the option of continuing to play the question or passing to the other team.
  4. The team that plays the question tries to reveal all of the correct answers to the question before receiving three strikes. (If the answer given is not one of the answers listed, it’s a strike.)
  5. If the team receives three strikes without clearing the board (providing all of the answers), control is passed to the other team.
  6. The team that now has the control is able to give one answer in the hopes that it is found on the board.
  7.  If it is, points are added to the team’s score.
  8.  If not, the other team gets the points.
  9. Each answer is associated with a number. That number represents how many people, out of 100, gave that answer. The team that wins the question round gets the number of points as answers that have been given.
  10. Designate a time for game play (maybe 30 minutes), and when time is up, the team with the most points wins.
  11. Example gameplay:

    Where do people usually wear sandals?
    Beach (70)
    Pool (14)
    Park (9)
    Shower (4)

  12. Scenario 1: The first team maintains control over the question the whole time and gets 3 of the four correct answers-let’s say they guessed the beach, the pool, and the shower. Before they guess park, they get three strikes, but the other team fails to steal by answering correctly on their one chance.When that question round finishes, the first team would get 70 points for beach, 14 points for pool, and 4 points for shower, leading to a total of 88 points.
  13. Scenario 2: If the second team, on their chance to steal after the first team got 3 strikes, came up with the correct answer of park, they would get all of the points, for a total of 97 points.


  • Make up your own questions, possibly around a specific theme.
  • Play three rounds, then two rounds giving out 2x the points, and a final round for 3x the points.


There are no foreseeable safety concerns for this activity.


Reward the inning team or,  allow them to choose a reward shareable for the entire group.
