What is the game 21 questions?
The 21 questions game is perceived to be one of the best ways of knowing someone better. Primarily, the game involves asking someone 21 questions whether they are funny, sexy, interesting or good questions depending on how close people relate.
When properly played, it’s proved to be an exciting game with lots of fun. Here’s how to play it.
How to play 21 questions game
There are many ways of killing a rat, and so there are various ways of playing the 21 questions game. The game is best played between two persons and preferably by taking turns. In some instances, the participants can split the 21 questions into two halves.
Normally, when the participants are more than two, say five, it’s recommended that they sit in a circle and someone is randomly chosen to answer the 21 questions as the others ask him/her questions.
The questions should not be repeated to make the game interesting. After one person is done answering the questions, he/she joins the rest in asking the next person another set of 21 questions.
To make the game lively, you can add why at the end of some questions and often some answers may lead to a conversation but that’s the fun of the game, worry not! After all, the main purpose of these questions is to act as conversation starters.
Note that in such a scenario where you are more than two in the game, you can allow everyone to get two passes.
