This is a brief introduction to the game I call Getting to know
. It is quite fun to play, and this program should run on any
device that has a web browser. (IPhone, Android, Laptop, etc.) At the
beginning of each round, you make a statement about yourself, that may
be either True or False, and label it as such. After everyone has
made a statement, they are sent back to the players who must label
each statement with the name of the player they believe made it, and
whether or not they think it is true or false. The secret is in the
scoring, which goes as follows:
You get one point if you correctly associate the statement with the person who made it.
You get an additional point if you correctly guess whether the statement is true or not.
You get two points if no-one associates you with your statement
You get three additional points if your statement was true.
Thus the way to get the maximum amount of points is to say something
true about yourself that no one will associate with you. Usually
quite difficult if you are playing with your spouse.
You will need to contact the other people you want to play with on
your own, (Email, telephone, messaging app) and tell them to go to the
URL you see above. Once everyone is there, one of you can press the
button and proceed to play. More detailed help is
available by clicking on the Help
button above. Have Fun!
