Christmas Trivia Games: How to Play Christmas Trivia Deal-n-StealFor use as a sit-down party game, there's an additional page with letter cards, "steal" cards and "pass" cards.
Here are the instructions for the sit-down game:
This trivia game accommodates 4 to 10 players. Print out the trivia cards (pages 5 to 15). They can be printed on either Avery 8371 or 5371 perforated business card stock which you can get online or at Office Depot. However, you can just as easily print them on ordinary card stock and cut them out with a paper cutter. Be sure to select exactly which pages you want to print!
Consider how many players will play. Print page 4 (with the "pass", "steal" and letter cards) once for every two players. So if you have 10 players, print the page 5 times.
You'll need pen and paper for scoring the game.
Place the deck of trivia cards face down in the center of the table. Give each player an A card, B card, C card, "Pass" card and "Steal" card.
Players take turns drawing trivia cards and reading the questions and the possible answers aloud to the other players. The correct answer is underlined on the cards. The reader does not reveal which is the right answer at this time.
Each player places their bet by laying down an A, B or C card face down. They can also lay down a pass or steal card (face down also).
The reader doesn't bet. The reader then reads the correct answer. Players turn their cards face up and the score keeper notes the scores.
Those players who answered correctly receive one point. If they got the answer incorrect, they lose one point.
For easy play, don't allow anyone's score to drop below 0. For more of a challenge, you can have scores less than 0.
Players may use a pass card once during the game. If they lay down the card, they won't lose a point, but they forfeit their pass card.
A player may steal an answer from the player to their right. To do this, the player lays down the steal card face down. If the person to the stealer's right answers the question correctly, the stealer gets one point and the person whose point was stolen loses a point.
A player can only steal once during the entire game.
If the answer is incorrect, the stealer loses one point, and the person from whom the answer was stolen gains one point.
After all the cards are played, scores are tallied. The winner is the one with the highest score.
