Let's learn about REAL millionaires
Each group must pick a spokesperson and a scorekeeper
After listening to a statement given about millionaires, decide whether it is true or false.
Once all teams have decided, your spokesperson will hold up a "True" or "False" sign
If your group is extremely confident in an answer, and wants to go for the "Million" (10) points on a question, stand up when revealing your card. Otherwise if you are going for the normal (5) points, stay seated.
