The Newlybud Game
Sent in by: Darcy of Attica, MI

Play this game with your new buds.

To play, you'll need at least 4 people, paper and pens.

Divide into teams of two.

Have one person from each team (player 1) leave the room so they can't hear their teammate's answers.

The players who stay in the room (player 2 of each team) write down answers to five questions about their partners.

Then player 1 from each team comes back to answer the same questions about themselves out loud. When player 1 answers, player 2 reads her answer aloud.

If teammates have the same answer, their team gets a point.

When the first set of questions has been answered, it's time for player 2 from each team to leave the room.

Player 1 now has to write down answers to five different questions about player 2.

Player 2 from each team comes back and answers the second set of questions about themselves out loud. When player 2 answers, player 1 reads his answer aloud.

If players 1 and 2 of a team have the same answer, their team gets a point.

When all of the questions have been answered, add up each team's points to find out the winner.

If there's a tie, have the tied teams play each other by writing down their teammate's birthday, astrological sign, and mother's name (or different facts that would be hard to guess.)

Here are the questions the ZOOMers answered (but you can come up with your own): favorite subject in school, favorite lunch, favorite ZOOM segment, what she ate for breakfast, favorite color, favorite breakfast, favorite book, least favorite green veggie, what he got for his last birthday, which musician she would most like to see perform.
