The rules of the game are simple: you bombard the other person with Qs -- they have to answer quickly and they cannot say 'Yes' or 'No'. Here is a clip which offers a perfect demonstration of how it works (featuring two of the giants of British Comedy, A. Hancock and K. Williams). Task 1 (for students): What Qs does the game host ask the second player (Hancock)? Task 2 (students work in pairs): Over to you now! The key is to try to trap your partner by asking him/her some 'Wh- Qs' and then inserting some 'Yes -- No' Qs in between ('Do you...?' / 'Can you...?' / 'Are you...?' / 'Have you ever...?') It helps if you check and re-check whether you have asked sth ('I did ask you that before, didn't I?') or whether you've heard correctly ('Did you say "blue"?') A brilliant game for developing fluency or giving students practice in asking Qs (lots of them!) Enjoy! Level: B1+ Topics: TV Games / Competitions Taken from the BBC Radio Series 'Hancock's Half Hour'
