That’s A Question
Czech Games Edition

That’s A Question is a silly party game for 3 to 6 players.  

Which would you miss more if it ceased to exist: Mountains or Pizza? That’s the sort of question you’ll need to answer when you play this game.

Players take the roles of squirrels climbing a mountain. As they climb,
they ask each other questions. Because, you know, that’s just what squirrels do.
Why squirrels? That’s a question!  You’ll take turns asking questions and hopefully moving up the mountain. You build a question from the cards in your hand and choose a player to answer. There
are three basic questions, and these are written
on the question board, located in the center of the play area. Each question involves a
choice between A and B. What are A and B? That’s
a question. 
To make a question, you pick two of your five answer cards to go with one of the three questions. Each card has 3 answers. So you have a lot to choose from.  Next, the player who will be answering secretly selects and places face-down their A or B token while the remaining players try to guess what the answer will be by secretly selecting their A or B token face-down. Reveal the tokens and score.
