The Game's in the Balance

by: Stuart

Players: 2+ Quizmaster required: Yes
Imagine a giant set of scales. On one side is a well-known sportsperson, on the other side is a certain number of Olympic sporting items. Contestants must decide how many of each sporting item you need in order for the scales to perfectly balance with the weight of the Olympian. There are 5 rounds, and the contestant nearest to the correct amount wins that round.
