This game encourages students to further develop their critical thinking skills as they create the questions for the game. Because students play on teams but answer questions individually, it appeals to both social and solitary learners.

Teams score points by correctly answering questions. Additional points are scored based on the number of team members who claim to know the answer (though they may be bluffing).

However, if the student answers incorrectly, their team loses two points for each person standing (yes, teams can have negative scores).
