Games & Icebreakers

Brother and Sister

Like the old tv game show, "The Newlywed Game," only with siblings.

The Point: Just because you're related to someone doesn't mean you know them. Relationships take effort no matter if you're related or not!

Get several sets of siblings to play this game- see which siblings know each other the best. (select siblings that can be a good sport and won't mind answering the below questions.) A brother and sister couple must work together to score the highest points possible to win. The brother is sent out of the room and the sister answers a series of questions about her brother. She records her answers on a large sheet of paper.

When the brother returns, he sits in a chair with his sister standing behind him holding up her written answers. If their answers match, the couple gets a point. (Remember: when you ask the brother the questions that you asked the sister, ask them like this: "1. What did your sister say was the dumbest thing you . . .")

Repeat this process by sending the sister out of the room and asking the brother to answer questions. Tally the scores and award the prize. Their answers are usually hilarious.

Questions to the sister about her brother:
What is the dumbest thing your brother has ever done?
What is his favorite food?
What do you dislike most about your brother?
Describe your brother in one word.
What is the meanest thing he has ever done to you?
What does he spend most of his time thinking about?
If you had one wish, what would you wish about your brother?
What is his favorite TV program?
How often does he take a bath?

Question to the brother about his sister:
What does your sister spend most of her time doing?
If you were your sister, what would you change about yourself first?
About how many arguments do you have with her each week?
Who obeys your mom and dad best, you or your sister?
Which celebrity does your sister have a crush on?
What animal is your sister most like?
What is your sister's favorite subject?
How long does she talk on the phone each day?
Who is your sister's best friend?

I totally agree with Meg. Why are the questions for the boys include "what's something dumb you've done" and for the girls it's "when was her first kiss" and does she "chase boys"? There could be very generic questions for both.

fun trivia game but takes awhile.

Love the idea of this game! Was wondering though, why the questions geared towards a girl have included kissing and chasing boys and the questions to the boys do not... I would tweak the questions for sure.
