Player A now picks up the “Give A True Answer Card” and the “Give A False Answer Card”. Player A holds these 2 cards out in a face down position to the player to the left. Player B chooses one of these cards. Now Player A goes back to the question card. Player A asks Player B the question on the card. Player B must give either a true or false answer according to the “Give A True Answer Card” or “Give A False Answer Card” that he/she chose. 7. All of the other players, including Player A, guess whether Player B’s answer is true or false. Each player gets 1 point for guessing correctly.
