How To Play Think Fast / Think Quick

  • Choose a category/topic

    Player 1 chooses a Category/Topic of a physical thing and then says it out loud for Player 2 to hear. e.g “Flowers”, “Vehicles”

  • Having stated the Category / Topic, Player 1 immediately starts counting down from 10 to 0 as fast as possible or taking around 10 seconds

  • Player 2 has to name an object in that category/topic before Player 1 gets to zero.

  • How to Win

    If Player 2 cannot think of something before the time runs out, they lose, and it is again the first player’s turn to call out a category.

  • However, if they beat the clock, it is their turn to call a category.

  • Example Games:

    Player 1 – Sports, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4
    Player 2 – Tennis
    Player 2 – Country starting with E, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6
    Player 1 – England
    Player 1 – Animal with spots, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0
    Player 1 – I WIN!

  • Variations:

    – If the counting is too quick simply start at a higher number or get adults to count down in groups of two or three (21,18,15,12,9,6,3,0)
    – Change the number of items within the category that Player 2 has to think of e.g They have to think of 3, 5 or 10 items in say 30 seconds.
