    I think it is easier if you're using dynamic fields like configurable list widget. So the user can add as many fields as they want by clicking add more button.


    Or if you're really looking for a conditional fields then that's still possible with Jotform.

    Here's a guide on how to show multiple fields at once: https://www.jotform.com/help/196-How-to-Hide-or-Show-Multiple-Fields-at-Once-Based-On-a-Single-Conditional-Entry

    To create a number based condition, I would suggest using Spinner tool, it's under Survey Tools.

    Then use Greater Than as the operator. Example:

    e.g. If Number of Guests is Greater Than 1

             Show Field 1

             Show Field 2

             Show Field 3 ...and so on.
