This is a verbal spontaneous problem. You have one minute to decide which 5 team members will participate.
(After the team chooses) Judge reads:
You will have 1 minute to think and 4 minutes to respond.
Each of you has 7 cards. After each response, you will place a card in the box. You will respond in sequence. You may give responses until you no longer have any cards or until time ends, whichever occurs first.
Questions count against your thinking time. You may not skip your turn, nor repeat, nor pass. If one member of the team is stuck, the team is stuck.
- Common answers will receive 1 point.
- Creative answers will receive 3 points.
- Highly creative or humorous answers will receive 5 points.
Your problem is: Name things that can be thrown. Creative Example: Thrown for a loop, hopes thrown away, horse throws a shoe.
(Judge repeats, “Your problem is:…)
JUDGES: Be sure each team member has 7 cards. Provide a box or basket for the cards to be placed into after each response.
