How to Play Dead or Alive

Dead or Alive is a more specific version of 20 Questions. I learned this game from my friend, Adam, in The Bahamas while we were cleaning up some dorm spaces. It was a fun game to pass the time during our chore. It's a great road trip game too!


Number of Players:

2 or more


Materials:

Nothing! Just like Contact, this game requires nothing but you, your friends, and your big ole brains. Objective of the Game:

The point of this game is to ask 'yes' or 'no' questions to figure out the person your friend is thinking of.

Playing Dead or Alive on a road trip with this view? Count me in!


Set-up:

Player 1 thinks of a person, dead or alive, fictional or real, and keeps it a secret.


Play:

Players begin asking Player 1 'yes' or 'no' questions, beginning with "Are they dead or alive?", to determine who Player 1 is thinking of. Player 1 can respond with 'I don't know' if they are unsure. Players keep asking questions until they figure out the person!


Winning:

There isn't really a winner of this game, but if you figure out your friend's person then good for you!

Tips:

-Try to pick people you know a lot about so you're able to answer your friend's questions.

-Ask questions that narrow things down, like gender, nationality, occupation, etc.
