How to Play

  • Students are split into 3 to 8 teams. The size of the teams is up to the teacher. Students can even play in pairs or as individuals for smaller class sizes.

  • Each team will get a mini whiteboard, dry erase marker, and an eraser.

  • First, a team will choose a letter on the question-choosing slide. It will then take them to a new slide where a question or prompt will be presented. Teams will discuss and write the answer on their boards.

  • The first two teams to hold up the correct answer get to go to the reward slide.

  • Those two teams stand up and are presented with a certain amount of money. Each team then decides amongst themselves if they want to split (deal) the money with the other team or steal it all from the other team.

  • Once they’re finished discussing, they write their choice secretly on their whiteboards.

  • The teacher will then prompt both teams to show their answers.

  • If both teams write “Deal,” the reward money is split between the two teams. If one team writes “Steal” and the other “Deal,” the team that wrote “Steal” gets all the reward money. However, if both teams write “Steal,” both teams get no money.

  • The teacher gives out points as needed, and the game continues in the same format.

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


  • Optional Additional Gameplay: If you have higher level or older students, before they write their answer, you can have the teams speak to each other about their potential choices and possibly sway the other team into making the choice they want (see the gameshow, Golden Balls’ Split or Steal round for an example)
