Spiderís Web

A. When the team enters the room, tell them this is a verbal problem

  1. Judge Reads to Teams:
  1. You will have 1 minute to think and 3 minutes to respond. You may ask questions during your think time: however, time continues. No other talking is allowed.
  2. You will receive 1 point for each common respons. Highly creative or humorous

responses will receive 5 points. This will be the subjective opinion of the

judges and the judges decision is final.

  1. Your team is to take turns in sequence. You may not skip your turn, or repeat, or pass. If one member of
  2. the team is stuck, the team is stuck.

  3. Once time begins, it will not be stopped. If the judge asks you to repeat a response, or to clarify it, or to give a more appropriate response, it counts against your time. Speak loudly and clearly.
  4. Your problem is to imagine that you are a fly trapped in a spiderís web. What would you do or what would you say? For example, you might say "I hope the spider has already had lunch!" (Repeat Number 5)
