GRUDGE BALL
How to play
• Break up into 5 or 6 teams
• Each team starts with 20 “X’s”
• Each team gets a question
– If you get it right, you get to remove 1 “X” from another team’s board
– If you get it wrong, you must remove 1 “X” from your board
• BUT before you remove the “X”, you have a chance to increase the
ability to get other teams to hate them
– From the 1st line = 1 extra “X’s”
– From the 2nd line = 2 extra “X’s”
– You may take them all from one team or split them up
• Each team takes turns
• No more “X’s”? You’re out.
– BUT you can get back on the board.
• Answer a question correctly AND take a shot. YOU MUST do both! Make the
shot, you’re back on the board
• 1st line = 2 “X’s”
• 2nd line = 3 “X’s”
