Bridge Game


A game plan (see attachment), questions (and a few replacement questions), pencils in different colours. (You have to adjust it to suit the number of groups).


  1. There are four groups and each group is assigned a colour.

  2. Group one names a field, for example A3, and the game leader poses the respective question. If the group is able to answer the question, the field is coloured in with the group’s colour.

    If they do not know the answer the question is passed on a maximum of two times. The field is coloured in once answered correctly.
    If nobody knows the answer the field is crossed out.

  3. For each field they get one point. However: if three fields are connected (a bridge) you get five extra points. (The bridge can go around a corner; but mustn’t be diagonal.) And for each field that meets this construction you get one extra point. Pay attention to which field you select!

  4. The game is played until all fields are allocated.

Another version

Instead of posing questions for each field, you can also pose questions which the whole group has to answer. After answering the question, the field is painted in the colour of the winning team. The other teams get one point less.
(Winner: 4 points, Second: 3 points…)
