How to Play the ‘M & M’ game

Players take a colored candy from a bowl of M and M’s (or other candy with multiple colors e.g Skittles, Smarties, etc). The color that is chosen then relates to a question or topic they then answer.

  • Setup

    – 6 questions / topics are chosen for the game, one for each color of M and M.

    The colors are Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, Brown and Orange.

    – A bag / bowl of M & M’s

  • Playing the Game

    – Players are then invited to take a candy or candies (1-3 is recommended) from a bowl before you reveal the questions they must answer for each color of M an M.

  • – Players then give their answers to the questions, according to the colored candy they have in their hand. (Before then being able to eat it!)

  • Group Answers

    You invite all players with the same color to share their answers, before moving to the next color.

    – This method increase group engagement and avoids spotlighting on individuals

    – Suitable for larger groups as play is faster

    Individual Answers

    You invite each player to share all their answers according to the colored sweets they have, one by one.

    – Better for a smaller group or where individual answers are likely to be more in depth

Note:

Keep a beady eye to ensure candies are not sneakily consumed before the players have answered their questions!
