In this interactive screen-based game, contestants have to guess the number without going over while the audience chooses which answer they think is correct!


This game is based on Wits and Wagers. It is a mixture of an up-front game and a crowd game. Four to six players come up to the front and using whiteboards and dry erase markers, students will attempt to answer the question by guessing the number WITHOUT going over. Display the question, let students write, and then display their answers. Then, students in the crowd can line up in front of the student they think has the right answer. You can also have the crowd text in which student they think is correct.  Whichever student wins gets two points, and any student who chooses the student with the correct answer gets one point. 

Zoom Version Idea: If you have a large group, split them into teams and have them submit a number via the chat.  Use the Scoreboard to display the answer and choose the winner.  Or pick individuals and have students upvote the answer they think is correct using the chat or a text app.

If you have a small group, let each person submit an individual answer, then give them a chance to upvote the answer they think is correct after all the answers are shown.
