Stay Cool

Are you an expert at multi-tasking?

Two players bombard you with questions, some you answer out loud and some you answer with dice.

Keep your cool and answer as many as you can in the time given. It couldn’t be easier to stay cool…

What’s in the box?

  • 50 verbal question cards
  • 50 written question cards
  • Seven letter dice
  • One sand timer
  • One timer card

How to play:

Choose the first active player – they take the dice. The player to their right will be the Written Interrogator – they take a red card. The player on their left will be the Verbal Interrogator – they take a teal card. Another player will be the Timekeeper – they take the timer and the timer card. If there are only three players, the Written Interrogator takes care of the timer.

A game is played in three rounds. Each player plays one turn per round. The two Interrogators bombard the active player with questions. That player must answer as many questions as possible within the time limit.

Red cards are answered by spelling the answer with the dice. Teal cards are answered verbally.

Each round gets progressively harder with the parameters of each round shifting around the use of the timer.

1st round: answer as many questions as possible in the 2 minute time limit.

2nd round: the active player must tell the timekeeper to flip the timer BEFORE the sand has run out by yelling “timer!” for each 30 second interval.

3rd round: the timer is hidden from the active player and they must still tell the timekeeper to flip the timer BEFORE the sand has run out.

Each player totals the points they scored during all three rounds. In case of a tie, the player who scored the most points in the 3rd round wins. If the game is still tied, all tied players share their victory.
