Made Up Games

How Many of Me

by: Bennett

Players: 2+ Quizmaster required: Yes
This is a play-your-cards-right style of game. Contestants toss a coin to see who goes first, and then a quizmaster picks a name - for example, Robert Green - and uses the website 'How Many of Me' to find out how many people in the US share that name. There are 8005 people with the name Robert Green. The next contestant will then have to guess if the next name has a higher or lower amount of people than the aforementioned Robert Green. If a player guesses incorrectly, it passes to the next player. The player in control after 10 rounds wins the game.
