This is a verbal spontaneous problem. You have one minute to decide which 5 team members will participate.
(After the team chooses) JUDGE READS TO THE TEAM:
You will have 1 minute to think and 4 minutes to respond. You will respond in clockwise order. Before responding, you must remove one item from the container on the table and place it in front of you. You may give responses until time ends or you run out of items. 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.
