This game can be played with any number of players.
If you're using printed clues, shuffle them up.
The person selecting the card and giving the clues is the Trivia Master. If you’re playing with more than two players, decide whether all players will have a chance to serve as the Trivia Master, rotating the responsibility with each card selected. Also, decide whether players guess at the same time or if only one player guesses per countdown card. There are lots of variations—play your way!
The Trivia Master gives the clues, in descending order, from 4 to 1. The opposing player has 10 seconds to correctly identify the answer after each clue. If they correctly identify the answer after clue 4, they receive 4 points. If they get the correct answer after clue 3, they receive 3 points, and so on. The number of points they receive directly corresponds to the number of the countdown clue. If the player is unable to identify the correct answer after all 4 clues have been given, they receive 0 points.
The player with the highest score wins the game.
The duration of the game is decided by the players. The game can end when a player wins by achieving a predetermined score (e.g., 20 points), after an established time has elapsed (e.g., 30 minutes) or when you run out of countdown cards.
