The ROOMMATE Game
Directions: Roommates sit facing opposite each other. Split total group into two rounds. Pick one row of roommates to be the person answering the question (1), and the other side is the person that the question is about (2). Both sides have paper. Question is asked. Row (1) writes the answer about the roommate. Row (2) writes the answer about him/herself. Both flash answers simultaneously. If answers match up, team gets points based on difficulty level of question – keep tally of points. After 17 questions, rows switch (5 easy, 7 medium, 5 hard). Ask odd questions for first roommate and even questions for second roommate. Each pair of roommates should answer: total 10 easy, total 14 medium, total 10 hard. After this round is complete, second group of roommates does the same thing with different questions.
