Group Flip Cup Review Game
Form Two Teams
Each member of the team gets a plastic cup
Both teams are given a question simultaneously
Both teams may start their turn by choosing who begins the "flip"
These cups work as a "buzzer" and once each member of a team successfully "flips" their cup in order from first person to last person, the group may then answer the question
If a group gets a correct answer, they receive a point
