Papers: a simple game for tonight

    Hello! Already 3-4 people have asked what to play without buying an expensive game. Directly with the company, right for the new year . Below I save you 990 rubles.

    So, everything is simple. You will need a connection to or Utility: Random . Or any other source of random and yet sufficiently clear words. Now we need to make 36 leaflets with these words and put them in an opaque bag, and mix there. And you also need a timer for 30 seconds, for example, on the phone.

    Now we break into two teams. In each - at least two people.

    First round

    Player 1 from the first team drags a piece of paper from the bag and reads the word to himself. The timer starts - and this player begins to explain it to everyone else in his team. It can be explained as you like, but not by harmonies, translations, rhymes or root words. The team guessed it - gave them a piece of paper, and then took the next one from the bag and tried to explain it. The timer is over - threw an unexplained piece of paper back into the bag.

    An example of a move in the first round:
    - Here is the admin, there is a moderator, there is the usual ... who?
    - User?
    - Yes. So, now this is the kind of thing that I get when I type in a domain name.
    - DNS server?
    - Yes, no, well, page.
    - Website?
    - I guessed. Now do you remember Steve Ballmer, well, has he repeated this word several times in his speech? Only it is necessary in Russian ...
    - Time!
    Total: 2 words guessed (user and site), one - no.

    When the package becomes empty, we consider the number of pieces of paper in the team - these are points. We write them down, put all the pieces of paper in the bag (the same ones) again, and begin the second round.

    Second round

    It must be explained with gestures, without words. Since the words are the same that you or your opponents have already explained, it will be quite simple. The same 30 seconds. I can’t explain - you can throw one piece of paper back into the bag and take a new one.

    The player shows as if shooting from a machine gun.
    - Kalashnikov assault rifle! Not?
    The player shakes his head: "no."
    - Ah, turn!
    The player makes a move, as if turning something over.
    - Ahhh, stack!
    The player nods.

    Again, we count points, adding up to those already received for the first round.

    Third round

    We explain how much we can do in 30 seconds in one word (again, not by translation, not by one root, not by rhyme or harmony). They said the second - they lost the course, as if the timer was over.

    - Accounting.
    - Girls ... Users!
    - A long.
    - Python!
    - Codit.
    - Developer!
    - In folder.
    - Two words, the passage of the course!

    We count points and whoever scores more wins .

    Here are a couple more rules:
    • Each of the team players must explain in turn. That is, one that constantly explains, and the others guess, should not be.
    • The new round begins with the team with fewer points. If there are equal points, this is the team that the move would have gone if the papers had not run out.

    All. I only saved you 990 rubles per box, because now you know how to play " BOOM ". There, by the way, there are more complete academic rules in PDF - this is if you argue about some point. Thank you, please. If you have a pen and paper, you can even play on the train.

    If you suddenly get together in an IT company, then here is a quick selection for 36 cards based on the most frequently used words of Habr from this study:

    But usually it’s much more interesting and at times more useful to play on the characters, so here’s another ready-made selection with scientists (in fact, in some ways this makes sense of the box being sold - you can learn a lot of useful things during the game):

    The sample is completely unrepresentative. Just those who will be interesting to explain. Just guess the last name.

    2. Karl Friedrich Gauss
    3. Heinrich Rudolph Hertz
    4. James Joule

    10. William Thomson (Lord Kelvin)
    11. Anders Celsius
    12. Albert Einstein
    13. Semyon Nikolevich Korsakov (read about him if you still don’t know)

    30. Charles Darwin

    33. Sergei Pavlovich Korolev
    34. Sofya Vasilievna Kovalevskaya
    35. Nikolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky
    36. Leonardo Pisansky (Fibonacci)

    PS Yes. Another option for generating words is to simply set the subject and ask everyone to make 3-4 cards on their own. Just avoid the banal words, otherwise there will be many repetitions. For example, I once played in the company on the subject of "IT-characters", so we had 2 Steve Jobs, 3 Bill Gates and 2 - suddenly - Mitsgola.

    Have a nice holidays!
