In this New Year’s Eve review game, you can look back on the year together in a funny way. And who knows: maybe answering these 36 questions will also bring you one or two insights… 😉
Whether you spend New Year’s Eve with family, friends or romantic couples – remembering the most beautiful and memorable moments of the year together is not a popular New Year’s Eve custom for nothing. In a way, you take stock of the year and remember what it actually meant to you.
You can do this in many ways, of course, but the most fun is to turn it into an entertaining New Year’s Eve review game. However, it is not about winning or losing. Rather, it’s simply a fun setting for each family member and/or friend present at your New Year’s Eve celebration to answer a series of questions.
Here’s how it works…
All you need are 36 question cards and 1 die. In addition, each player needs something to write on. Now shuffle the 36 cards well and divide them into 6 equal piles.
Take turns rolling the dice and, depending on the number of dice you roll, draw a card from the 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc. pile. Read out the question on it aloud. All players, including the questioner, think about it briefly and then write down an answer. The question card is turned over and placed in a discard pile.
Continue in this way until you have played through all the questions. When a pile ends and the corresponding number is rolled, it simply applies to the next pile that still has cards, whereby pile no. 6 is simply followed by pile no. 1 again.
At the end, read out all the questions from the discard pile again and give your answers in turn.
If you are playing in a family with children who cannot yet read and write, you can of course say the answers directly.
Instead of one big piece of paper on which all players write down their answers, everyone gets 36 small pieces of paper, one for each question. After each round, these are collected from the current question, shuffled and also placed on the discard pile.
At the second reading aloud, one player in turn reads out a question and all the corresponding answers. Since these have been shuffled each time, you often don’t know exactly who gave which answer. Guessing or guessing who gave which answer in the round is also part of the fun.
You can of course make up your own questions.
Have fun with our New Year’s Eve review game!
