Doug's note: I love this type of group interaction.
What is Besties?
Did we just become best friends?!? “Besties” is a slide-driven mixer game where students race to make best friends. While making a new best friend is something that we can’t guarantee, we can guarantee that this game is a lot of fun!
Each round, a slide is shown on the screen with a question. Each student must answer the question as quickly as they can and then promptly race to find someone else in the room with the same answer as them. Once a student finds a “Bestie” with the same answer, those two students must sit down. The final pair of Besties to link up (or those who never link up with their Bestie) will lose the round. Feel free to issue any punishment that you would like.
The game resets each round so that all students have the chance to make new ‘Besties.”
