Game Features

  • Gameshow-like design and sound effects

  • Tons of flexibility – This game can go as short or as long as you’d like depending on how many rounds you have

  • 25 rounds of gameplay already provided

  • All text is editable, so easily change or update the game as needed (I recommend searching prompts from the “5 Little Clues 1 Word” game on Google for more round ideas)

How to Play

  • Divide your class into teams. How many teams and how many students per team is up to you.

  • Each round, one student from each team stands up.

  • You will show them four words, one by one.

  • Their goal is to try to guess the secret word from the four words and make a question using that word, “Do you know anything about _______?

  • To guess, I usually have the students standing raise their hand and I choose whoever put their hand up first to answer, but feel free to change this with whatever method works best with your class.

  • Once a student answers correctly, they get a point for their team.

  • The team with the most points at the end of the game wins!

Variations

  • Optional Rule: Students can make a guess before all four words are revealed. However, if I play this way, usually I give students only one guess for that round and if they guess incorrectly they’re out.

  • You can also make this into a writing game where each round the teams work together to figure out the answer and write it down on mini whiteboards. Then, any team who answers correctly gets a point.

Runtime

(based on experiences from me and other teachers)

  • Variable. It depends on how many rounds you have in the game. I usually play for about 20min and don't get through all 25 rounds.
