Guys vs. Girls Trivia


Have 5 guys and 5 girls come up. You need 5 of the same prizes to give away to the winning team.

Write out a list of about 10 to 15 questions. (Example: How high does a building have to be before it’s required to have a blinking red light for airplanes? Answer: 200 ft.; Where is mascara applied?) Some of the questions can be geared towards males, some to females, and some a bit tough for both.

The teams line up facing the audience on both sides of you. When someone on a team knows the answer they have to hit the floor face down. Sometimes one kid goes down, sometimes everyone will. If the person gets the answer wrong, the other team gets a shot at it. If they miss, then it’s “dead,” so you might want to have a few extra questions and a tiebreaker.

The first team to 8 or 10 points wins. You can change the points, players, or number of questions to suit your group.
