This one is for people age 8 and up, but really anyone can play it. All you have to do is pick a card but be sure not to look at it. Place it in your headband so that the rest of the players can see it. Now start asking “yes” or “no” questions until you guess the card right. “It’s a race against the clock to be the first player to get three scoring badges to win.” How fun does that sound?
