Leader Resource 1: UU Reverse Quiz Game Preparation

Prepare a reverse quiz game using a 24x36-inch piece of foam core or poster board held horizontally. Draw a table with five columns and six rows, making each block measure six inches horizontally and four inches vertically. Leave a three-inch margin on each side and no margin on the top or bottom. In the top block of each column, write one of these categories: UU Stamps, JUUstice for All, Free Association, UU Theology and Heretical Quotes.

Following the diagram, transfer the text of the numbered responses (1-5 in each category) to the numbered blocks (1-5 in each column). Then, cover each response with a sheet of 4x6-inch self-sticking paper. Write the number of the block on the paper.
