a. TTW tell the students to get into their minion groups.

b. TTW explain the rules: The game will start with a question for the first minion group, and progress to each minion.  If the first minion group gets the answer correct, the next minion group will get their question.  If the first minion group misses the question, each minion group, in order will get a chance to steal the question until a correct answer is given, or the question gets back to the original minion group.  Once the question gets back to the original minion group, it dies. After the question dies, or has been answered correctly, the next minion group in line gets their question, regardless of which minion group answered the question correctly.  The order for the questions will always remain the same (1,2,3,4).  After a minion answers a question, they get to go to the board and put a point up for their minion  (four 1s and then a diagonal slash through the grouping to represent 5 points).  TTW stop at group four when there are not enough questions left to ask the wager question.  TTW always save at least 2 questions for the wager round.  For the wager round TTW have one person from each minion group write down the groups decision on how many of their points to wager on the last question (the groups can use all of the points on the board for their minion, as the other classes are playing as well, and the prize will be for all students belonging to the winning minion.
