Past continuous memory game

Ask your partner questions with “What were you doing at…?” and “What were you doing when…(you first/ last…)?” that you think they won’t know the answer to. When your partner asks you something you can’t remember or you are trying to think, use different phrases each time, e.g. “It’s on the tip of my tongue” or “I’ll kick myself when I remember this later”
