Here is our next 'Survey Said' question:

.

When it comes to finding questions for our Friday morning game 'Survey Said', I have learned a couple of things over the last few months. Most of it has to do with the type of questions that I ask.

For instance, some questions only generate a few responses, meaning you get the same 2 or 3 answers to one question from everybody and that limits the top answers on the board.

On the other side, there are questions that get too many different answers, and that makes the board too big. That is what happened with this last 'Survey Said' question. As you saw above, this past week's question (name a popular 80s TV show), had over 20 different answers, and that is just too many. The perfect number of different types of responses is around twelve. That usually gives you a 'Top Answers' board of around six to eight.

When I started this, I had it set up so that if there were two or more of the same answers, it makes the board. I might have to rethink that -- or just make sure the questions are better.
