What If? Game

My awesome friend Richelle introduced us to this fun game over a year ago and it has become one of our favorite Family Home Evening games. Every one gets a small piece of paper and writes a question that starts with “What if”.  For example, “What if Dad bought the Olympic Flame and put it in the front yard?”  After all the questions are written, we put them in a small bowl and have everyone choose one of the questions (make sure no one gets their own question).  

Then write a silly answer, making sure to write the name or object instead of writing him, her or it.  Following along with our same question, “Then there would be a ton of cars driving in front of our house”.  That would be pretty fun right there, but there’s a final step.  Have one person read their question and the next person read the answer to their own question.  So if the person next to me read, “What if Mom was the Boggle champion?”; I’d read the answer to my question, “Then there would be a ton of cars driving in front of our house.”  You could see how this could be humorous – which is why we love it so much!

    Complete sentences are highly overrated! Actually it took us a while to get the youngest child to not always write "that would be cool!"

    I love that game! We used to play it all the time. I'm definitely going to have to introduce my kids to it once they can all write in complete sentences :).
