Question games are an excellent way to connect with a group because they allow individuals to share their thoughts, experiences, and perspectives with each other. By asking and answering questions, players can learn more about each other's values, interests, and personalities, deepening connections, understanding within the group, and appreciation about each other's unique qualities and perspectives.
In this game, one player thinks of a person, place, or thing, and the other players take turns asking yes-or-no questions to try to guess what it is.
Would You Rather
In this game, players take turns asking each other questions that present a choice between two options, and the players must choose which option they would rather do.
Truth or Dare
In this game, players take turns asking each other to either answer a personal question truthfully or perform a dare.
The Question Game
In this game, players take turns asking each other questions, but the catch is that the answer must also be a question.
Who Am I?
In this game, players write down the name of a famous person on a slip of paper and stick it to the forehead of the player next to them. The player must then ask yes-or-no questions to try to guess who they are.
The Newlywed Game
In this game, couples answer questions about each other to see how well they know each other, and the couple with the most correct answers wins.
Player 1 chooses a word. They provide the first letter of the word to the other players. One of the other players offer a hint for a word that begins with that same letter. Player 1 and the other players race to answer the hint. The other players can just blurt out the hint until they get it. Player 1 must say 'No it's not a (insert the answer of the hint). If player 1 answer first, the other players keep trying new hints. If the other players guess first, player 1 must provide another letter. Then the hints must be for words that have the same two letters. The process continues until the other players guess player 1's word.
Choose the question
All players give a question to one person who then chooses which question they will answer.
What would they answer?
Player 1 asks someone in the group to ask them a question. The person player 1 selected asks a question, then everyone in the group answers the question except for player 1. Player 1 then shares which answer is closer to their actual answer to the question. If they choose to, player 1 can answer the question.
Pass the question
Each player writes a question on a big sheet of paper. Everyone passes the paper to the right, and the person to the right write an answer on the paper. This process continues until the paper is to the left of the person who wrote the question. The person to the left reads out every answer and the person who wrote the question must guess who wrote which answer. They get one point for each question they guess.
Each person shares the five things they would bring with them if they were stranded on a deserted island.
Guess the rule
One person leaves the room. The other players choose a rule to guide their answers. (Ex. always answer with an A, always look at something in the room before answering, always talk about colour in the answer). When the player that left returns, they ask as many questions as they need until the eventually guess the rule.
