Activity of the Week – The Yes/No Game

What you will need:

  • At least 2 players
  • 20 index cards, or make them yourself by cutting a few pieces of paper.
  • A pencil


How to set up the game:

  1. Split up the index cards and each person can write a random number, 2D shape, or 3D shape on each piece of paper.
  2. Place the index cards facedown in a pile.

How to play the game:

1. Each player places a card on their forehead. So other players can see their card but they can’t.


2. The first player asks a question that can only be answered with ‘yes’ or
‘no’. For example, “Am I odd?”, “Am I under 20?”, “Do I have 4 sides?”, etc.

3. Everyone can answer the question. Once the question is answered, it’s the
next player’s turn to ask a yes/no question about their card.


4. Take turns asking questions until a player guesses what is on their card
correctly.

Note: You can use more index cards to make the game longer or if you have
more players!
