How to play Survey Says at home

If you would like to create your own survey says game at home here are some tips and instructions to make your own version:

1) Create questions and answers

To make Survey Says feel like the real thing you will need great survey questions.  Before the game you will need to prepare the questions for your game.  You can find a website that has the questions already prepared.  You can also send out your own survey to your group.  Once you have all the responses you will need to organizer the answers to run the game smoothly

2) Game board  

To organize everyone virtually you will need to send our a video link to display your game board.  Most people are familar with zoom.  Once everyone is on, share your screen so everyone can access your game board.  You can create your own game board or find a virtual version. 

3) Create teams

If you know the game participants beforehand, it is usually a good idea to divide everyone up into teams before the game starts.  Otherwise, you can divide all of the participants once they join the video call.  You could do this department vs. department or some other breakdown.  

4) Playing the game!

Ready for the fun?  The host will ask a question and the play who buzzes in first gets to answer.  If they guess the higher answer they get to decide if they want to play or pass.  The point of the game is to guess the response with the highest points.  One team guesses at a time and gains points for their team.  If they guess incorrectly three times then it is the other teams chance.  There is a time limit of 25 seconds.  

The other team has one opportunity to steal their points with one answer. If they can't guess the correct word, the original team keeps their points. The rounds continue until all of the answers have been guessed.

A great addition to the game is to have a real buzzer for when there are wrong answers.  It adds to the fun!

5) Give the winners a prize

Adding a prize to the winners will increase the competition and raise the stakes.  A gift card, day off, happy hour or lunch are all great prizes.
