Going to for plans/ will for spontaneous decisions helping game

Rules of the game: Choose one of the things below and write one thing that will need doing to complete that thing, e.g. for “Have a picnic” you could write “Check the weather forecast”. Tell your partners which thing you are planning (i.e. the part that is written here, not the part you have written). They should make offers to help you until they offer to do the thing you have written down. Score one point for any helpful ideas (and thank them for their help) and 10 points for offering to do the thing that you have written. If you think what they offer to do is not helpful, tell them so politely and they score no points.
