How does it work?
Here’s an example of one round of the game.
Step 1: After a player tosses one of the blue dice, it reads “You promised to go to the movies with your friend but then cancelled. Now he is mad at you.”
Step 2: The player then tosses one of the yellow dice, and it reads “How could being a good listener help?”
Step 3: Player then answers the question and gains points.
Could also be played in teams, allowing players to collaborate.
