EM PICWho doesn’t like a good Instagram or Facebook photo? Okay, maybe  the selfie is a bit overrated, but why not have some fun with it.

Will The Real Caption Please Stand Up? is an attempt to do just that.

PREP TIME– 20-30 Minutes

ITEMS NEEDED– A Screen to View Pictures & Captions

GAME TIME– 10 Minutes

PARTICIPANTS– Individuals or Groups of Any Size

INSTRUCTIONS

Before you begin, take a few minutes to scroll through Instagram & Facebook to find some fun pics with some great quotes.

While you can use any picture, it’s always a great idea to include some people from your group in the mix as well.

All you need to do is put together a quick PowerPoint with the picture and give three options for your group to guess from. One will be the real caption and the other two will be your creation. If you need some help, here’s a little something to get you started: Will The Real Caption Please Stand Up?. The template is fully editable, making it easy to plug and play.

This is where things can get fun, because the game isn’t just about guessing the right caption, it’s about having a good time and creating some laughs with your group.

BONUS TIPS

1. If possible, get some other leaders to help you create captions as well- you will be surprised what they will come up with! You can even email them the pictures a few days before so they have plenty of time to let the creative juices flow.

2. If you’re struggling to find some pictures, follow some well known celebrities on Instagram.

Today is Tuesday, which means it is time for Tuesday’s Game of the Week! This week’s game is entitled, NAME THAT NERD.

Under most circumstances, I simply explain a game to you, but today is your lucky day because I’m giving you this one!

If you would like to use this game directly from PowerPoint, click: Name That Nerd PowerPoint Game, go to “save as” and then open up PPT on your computer. Once you’ve done so, go to “open” under the “file” tab and select “name-that-nerd1.pptx”. That should do the trick! (If you can’t get the file, you can email me at studentministrygames@yahoo.com and I will send you the file)

Once you have the file open, you can play one of two ways:

1. Let students guess as individuals just for fun. You won’t need to keep track for this.

2. Divide your group into groups or sections and have them work together as a team. If you decide to go this route, keep in mind that there is a tie-breaker at the end that you may need to use. This question is not only about answering correctly, but it is also about speed. The first team to answer correctly wins!

This is one of the games taken from our Nerd Night, in which we played a few fun games, had students dress up like nerds and shared a message centered on salvation with all the students. I have to say that our students got really into this. We still have some of the pictures from the night hanging in our youth room at church.

So embrace your inner (or outer) nerd and get ready to have a good laugh with this quick and easy game you can integrate into this week’s youth meeting. Good luck and let me know how it goes!!
