Barnard’s Stop the Bus Game

You will need: Paper, pens and a stopwatch/timer.

  1. Gather a group of friends, family or siblings together.
  2. Hand a piece of paper and a pen to each person.
  3. Draw seven columns on your paper ( see photo for example)
  4. At the top of each individual column write categories, for example, boy’s name, girl’s name, food/drink, country, tv show and animal.
  5. You can choose your own theme or categories.
  6. Take it in turns to choose a letter from the alphabet.
  7. Put a 60 second timer on and everyone has to think of something that begins with the chosen letter to match each category in 60 seconds. For example, if someone chooses the letter A – Adam, Anna, apple, Antigua, A-Team and antelope.
  8. Shout STOP THE BUS! When the 60 seconds is up, and repeat step 5 and 6 until your columns are full.
  9. Each answer with the correct letter earns 10 points. If the same answer is given by two or more participants, they each earn five points.
  10. Write your earned points in column seven. The person with the most points at the end of the game is the winner!
