Here’s a second sampling of questions from “The Questions Game,” back by popular demand. If you didn’t read Part I, here’s a quick recap of what this is all about:
I love Test For Friends, a game you can play on your phone. At first glance, it seems a dating app, but upon closer inspection, it serves as a great self-assessment tool. I game with randoms because it requires an android (I think) and barely anyone has those in my circle. It is that much fun.
A new batch I’ve come across follows. (Ignore the off wording; it’s from Denmark). It’s multiple choice and sometimes doesn’t offer the option you would choose, but it’s still eye-opening. I’m going to make this into a cocktail party card game and you are all invited!
♦You’re supposed to choose a teammate for a game. You go with (a) best player (b) best friend
♦Have you ever pretended to be single when you were flirting, even though you weren’t?
