GAME #1: White Tape
White Tape is a fun trivia game where the answer is hidden in a 5 x 5 letter puzzle clue. The game master will ask a question and instruct players to erase one letter at a time. Once the player knows the answer, he/she will erase all of the other letters (using Tombow’s correction tape) to reveal the correct answer. First player to show the correct answer wins a point.
Materials required: Printed Clue Cards & Tombow Correction Tape
GAME #2: Number Trivia
A fun number trivia game where the answer can only be any number between “1” to “9”. Don’t worry, they’re not all math questions! The players will have to answer by holding up the card with the numbers or names of the numbers written/drawn in their unique style! First player to show the correct answer wins the point.
Materials required: Index Cards numbered
Pre-game preparation: Create a lettering or calligraphy of each number from 1 to 9 (you can write/draw the letter or the number) on the cards provided. Feel free to decorate it if you like!
GAME #3: Flourish-ionary
Pictionary with a calligraphy twist! Pick a word, draw it, and let the other players guess. But instead of just drawing the clue, draw it with flourishes! Player will have 60 seconds to fourish the clue, and 10 seconds to guess the answer.
Materials required: Tombow ABT Brush Pens & paper
No pressure, HAVE FUN & INTERACT WITH THE AUDIENCE! :)
