Made Up Games

Crowd Mentotality

by: Ian

Players: 2+ Quizmaster required: Yes
In advance of the game, a quizmaster should canvas the opinion of as many family and friends as possible as to the amount meant by certain non-specific words - e.g. how much is a 'throng'? These should then be used to calculate a mean average for each word - the crowd mentotal - to the nearest whole number. Contestants must guess how many people on average each word represented from the sample. Nearest guess wins, best of five.
