It's tic-tac-toe/hollywood squares.  A team picks a square, and one madrich reads a question.  Each of the other two madrichim say one of the answers, and explains as best as he/she can their own answer (of course, one of the answers is wrong).  Try to convince your chanichim that you are right!  The team has to guess which madrich is right.  If they're right, they put down the peice.

question, to make the game last longer.
