How to Play True or False Trivia Game
Playing a true or false trivia game is the perfect way to break up a long day - it's educational and entertaining!
To get started, you can print out a True or False Quiz and cut out each statement and put into a bowl. Then on each turn, the player will choose one slip of paper and read out the question.
One player takes the role of quiz master and reads each statement in turn. The other players then raise their hand if they think the statement is true. If they do not raise their hand then they guess the answer is false.
A correct answer scores 1 point, while an incorrect answer earns 0, so answering quickly, but thoughtfully, is key for amassing a high score. Make sure to keep track of all your points because at the end of your game, you'll crown one winner who has earned all the bragging rights!
