How to Play Science “Trivia”

To play Science “Trivia,” you’ll need at least two players. One player will ask the questions while the other player(s) answer them.

If you’re playing with more than three people, divide yourselves into teams and take turns asking and answering questions. The trivia master asks the first question to the first team/player and a time limit is set for the answer.

If the team/player answers correctly within the time limit, they get a point. If not, the other team/player gets a chance to steal the point by answering correctly. If no one answers correctly, no points are given.

The game continues with each team/player taking turns asking and answering questions until all “Trivia” questions have been exhausted or until a certain number of points have been reached.
