Made Up Games

Scores on the Pause

by: Matt

Players: 2+ Quizmaster required: Yes
This game is based on the premise that when listening to the classified football results on the iconic Sports Report, you can guess the amount of goals the away team have scored based on the broadcaster's intonation when reading out the home team's name and score. A quizmaster will play Charlotte Green reading the home team score. The contestants have to guess the subsequent away team's goal haul just on her tone of voice. 3 points for the correct score, 1 point if you get the score wrong but still guess the correct outcome. Three rounds each.
