What to do

  1. Choose one person to start. This person must think of an object. To make the game easier, he or she can classify the object as animal, vegetable or mineral.

  3. The person who has the object in mind should answer the question with a simple yes or no.
  4. After hearing the answer, the questioner is allowed to guess the object. The players are allowed to ask a total of 20 questions.
  5. If the guess is correct, the winning questioner now thinks of a new object. If the answer is incorrect, another player is allowed to ask a yes or no question.

No of players -

any

What to do

  1. Look around and silently select an object that can be seen by all the players.
  2. Say, "I spy with my little eye," and then give some description of the object, such as "something red," "something square" or "something small.”
  3. Tell the other players to take turns trying to guess what the object is.
  4. Let the player who correctly guesses the selected item pick the next object, or have all players take turns in a set order (this may be best if you are playing with younger children who may not be so good at guessing).
  5. Offer extra clues if the players are completely stumped.
