How to Play. In this game, the boys guess girls' names and the girls do boys’. For example, Player A (a boy) stands up and asks: 'Is there Kristina in the class?'. If one of the girls answers: 'Yes, there is. I'm Kristina!', Player A gets 1 point. If two girls respond, Player A gets 2 points and etc. Then it is Player B’s turn to ask and so on. If a boy asks for a pair name, e.g. Alex, only the girls, whose name is Alex, answer and vice versa. The game lasts as long as all the names have been revealed. At the end, the gained points are couned up. The winner is the player to get the most points in total.
