Yellow team puts down cards. These people become the supporters. They will pair up with blue team members. Yellow card people's job is to be 'yes, and' supporters of whatever blue says. They make blue answers even better. Make your partner look brilliant. 1 min for the conversation. Switch partners (1 min) Switch partners (1 min)

Then switch so yellow team gets supported by blue team members.
