The Number Ones Game

by: Joe

Players: 2 Quizmaster required: Yes
A quizmaster selects a year between 1952 and now. Contestants then name a song that they think got to number 1 in the UK charts that year. They get 2 points for a correct artist and title. However, if you correctly guess the artist but the title is incorrect, you'll get your 1 point but the opposing player can then steal the remaining point if they can get the title. Likewise, if the contestant in play fails to correctly name either artist or title, the opposing player can nip in to steal the points there as well. It's 3 rounds each, the player with the most points at the end wins.
