Students get into pairs or groups, depending on class size. Each pair/group receives a worksheet.
Explain the basis of the worksheet. Each sentence can earn points based on content as follows:
Any sentence that another group has already said receives no points. You can decide how literal to be about this, as some students will try to alter a sentence already said by another team by one word to still try to get points.
Because the students are aiming for points, they'll want to make as complex of a sentence/question as they can and also try to make it original, since they can't get points if another team says it.
Give the students 5-7 minutes, based on class ability, to make ten sentences/questions. At the end of the preparation time, have each group take turns reading out their sentences. You can have them janken to see which group goes first. For example, Group 1 reads their first sentence and then Group 2 reads their first sentence, and so on.
Whichever team has the most points at the end of the rounds wins.
You could add in a bizarre-ness element. If a sentence is really funny and makes the ALT laugh, that could be worth an additional point.
