A screen game where participants decide if the nickname for a king is real or made up.


History has given many kings some very unfortunate nicknames. In this game, a king and his nickname will show on the screen. Participants must decide if it is an actual historic King (real) or if it is completely made up (fake). 

Play it as an upfront game by dividing the crowd into teams and having a different representative guess for each round. Most correct answers at the end wins.

Play it as an All Play. Designate one side of the room as the ""Real"" side and the other as the ""Fake."" Make it an elimination game where you sit down if you're wrong, or have everyone keep score till the end.

  • Complete PowerPoint game file
  • Individual (10 Q&A + instructions) game slides (jpeg files)
