How To Play Over or Under
Playing Over or Under is very easy. It’s a quick game that can be played at any time during the bridal shower.
The object of the game is to guess whether the statement on the game card is over or under the correct answer (or an exact match)
Before the bridal shower, have the bride answer each question on the card. This is your answer key for the game.
#1 For the statement that reads, “The bride wears a size 7 shoe”, the bride writes that she actually wears a size 8.
This would mean that anyone choosing “over” would be correct. Anyone guessing “under” or “exact match” would get it wrong.
#2 For the statement that reads, “The bride tried on 6 wedding dresses before choosing her favorite”, the bride writes that she actually tried on 3.
That would mean anyone choosing “under” scores a point. Anyone choosing “over” or “exact match” scores no points for that question.
What you need to play the game:
- A game card for each player (you can download a free printable below)
- A pen/pencil for each player
- A timer (try using 2 songs from the bride’s music playlist as the timer. Music always makes the game more fun)
- A prize for the player with the most points
