I have been trying an interesting Facebook project recently, which is to convert over a social party game into an online game. This is the not-so-famous Question Game. (Apparently, there’s another Question Game which you can google about, but this is nothing like my game.)
So we don’t cause any further confusion – this will now be known as the Matt Hodge Question Game. Here’s the official rules:
MATT HODGE QUESTION GAME – RULES
Object of the Game: To get to know people better, and to make extroverts realise that introverts have good things to say too – but you have to ask them first.
1.You can play with as few as two people, but four or five is ideal.
2. If you’re playing in real life, sit in a circle. If you’re playing online in a (private) chat room then you can just run through the players in order that they’re listed.
3. Someone starts by asking a question. It can be on any topic – as serious or as silly as you like.
4. The person to the left (if you’re playing in a circle) or the person below the asker in a chat room listing answers the question.
5. Then the person to their left (or the next person down the list) answers the question. And so forth, until finally you come back to the person who answered the question and they answer their own question.
6. The person to the left of them (or next down the list) now asks a question and the game continues.
7. You can drop out or drop in as you please.
8. Nobody has to answer the question if they don’t want to but everybody has to be given the chance to answer.
9. If you’re not answering,then listen to other people’s answers. Feel free, however, to ask further questions to get people to explain their answers better or to comment on what they’ve said.
Okay, that’s it. The more willing you are to answer questions and ask interesting ones yourself, the more you’ll get out of it. Why not try it at your next social gathering? Friends of mine on Facebook, now you know what I’m talking about whenever I announce a round of the Question Game being played.
