Allow your guests to mingle for a reasonable amount of time. Then, give each person a paper and pencil have them pick a partner. Next, ask each pair to sit back to back (no peeking).

If there is an uneven amount of guests you may choose to partner with the odd woman out. Just be sure you are facing in a direction that allows you to observe the other players.

Finally, ask your guests the following questions one by one (or make up your own questions)
