Concession and addition coin game

Listen to your partner’s opinion and either add an additional point with the same point of view or look at the opposite side of something depending on the flip of a coin:

Heads = addition

Tails = concession (contrasting etc)

Your partner will then flip and coin and continue talking about the same thing in the same way, but they must use a different connecting word. Continue in the same way about the same topic, giving a reason for your opinion and using a different linking word each time, until someone gives up. Then choose another topic and play the same game.
