Comparatives-  Make Me Say Yes

Ask your partner yes/ no questions with comparative adjectives such as “Is your bedroom 
tidier than your brother’s bedroom?”, using the table below to help if you like. You get one 
point each time they say 
“Yes, (I am/ it is/ he is/ she is)” but no points if they say “No, (I’m 
not/ it isn’t/ he isn’t/ she isn’t)”, “I don’t know”, “I’m not sure”, etc.

Play the same game again, but this time with one point for “I don’t know” or “I’m not sure” 
answers and no points for 
“Yes” or “No” answers.
