What is The Great Debate

An engaging game that sparks fresh perspectives and lively chats among colleagues.

Goal: Defend your take on fun topics, persuade others, or simply make the most convincing case.

The Great Debate Rules

  1. A moderator throws out a question or topic with two sides to pick from.
  2. Players get divided into two teams, each taking a side of the debate.
  3. Both teams get 5 minutes to chat and build their argument.
  4. A member from each team shares their argument with the group.
  5. Once both sides are out there, the moderator lets everyone jump in for a quick debate round.
  6. The group then votes on the most convincing argument, looking at clarity, creativity, and insight.
