Jeff & Bryce FFFToday, I’ll be sharing one of the most memorable games I’ve ever played in 15+ years of student ministry.

Can You Pass Me That? is a relay game involving chicken nuggets. We actually used it for our Fast Food themed Invite Night, but you can use it as a stand alone game as well.

PREP TIME– 5 Minutes

ITEMS NEEDED– One 20 Piece Chicken Nuggets Per Team

GAME TIME– 3-5 Minutes

PARTICIPANTS– Everyone

INSTRUCTIONS

Once you have your teams separated, have them stand in a single file line facing the front of the room. You will then need to place a box of chicken nuggets on the floor in front of the person leading the line. You will also need to have small bowl on the ground behind the last person in line.

Stay Puft Marshmallow ManWednesday’s Game of the week pays homage to the wondrous beauty that is the marshmallow. Okay, so that may be a bit over the top, but let me introduce to you one of our favorite marshmallow games: Marshmallow Madness!

PREP TIME– 2 Minutes

ITEMS NEEDED– 2 Bags of Small Marshmallows, 4 Plastic Cups or Small Bins, Masking Tape

GAME TIME– 3-5 Minutes

PARTICIPANTS– 4 Teams of at least 2 (you can have more or larger teams)

INSTRUCTIONS

Today’s game is a spin off of something that almost all of us have done. You will need to start by taping off two lines that are about 6-10ft  apart. Make sure participants stand behind the lines.

Time To UnwindToday is Tuesday, which means it’s time for Tuesday’s Game of the Day! In today’s game, we are focusing on a game that takes absolutely no set-up and requires nothing but people to play.

PREP TIME- None

ITEMS NEEDED– None

GAME TIME– 3-10 Minutes

PARTICIPANTS- Everyone- Divide into teams of 6-8

INSTRUCTIONS

This is an awesome game to play, but also a lot of fun to watch. Have each team gather together in a circle. Once they are in place, instruct them to take the hand of somebody across from them, but not next to them (this is important, the game will not work if they take the hand of the person next to them- it will create two circles). Not only can they not take the hand of the person next to them, but they cannot link both of their hands with the same person (creates the same, aforementioned problem).

Watermelon

Today we’re taking a game from the archives and putting it into our Top Ten Relay Countdowns. The game, Melon Madness!

PREP TIME – 10 Minutes

ITEMS NEEDED – 1 Watermelon for every 10-30 students

GAME TIME – 5-10 minutes

PARTICIPANTS – Everyone (unlimited, but a minimum of 10)

INSTRUCTIONS

This game works best in large groups (i.e. camp or retreat) and is best played on grass if possible. Before you play, you will need to purchase enough watermelons for each team. You can decide how many teams you want, but 20 per team seems to be a perfect number for this game. Once you’ve purchased the watermelons, grab some Vaseline and rub it on those bad boys. Make sure to slather plenty on!
