How to Play Thanksgiving Would You Rather

Have everyone sit in a circle.

The first player randomly picks a Thanksgiving Would You Rather card and reads out the question it contains.
That player must try to guess the majority answer of all the other players in the group and circle his/her guess on the card. A poll is then taken to see which is the majority answer.
Award 10 points for every correct guess and 5 points if the poll results in a tie.

Give some time for everyone to explain their choice.

The person on the left goes next.

You can play as many rounds as you like.
