Play. Laugh. Connect.

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 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!!

Welcome to Student Ministry Games! We are excited to bring you NEW, fun and creative gaming ideas to help enhance your student ministry experience. If you are tired of rehashing the same games over and over again, then you have found the right place. While we will share some of the tried and true staples in group gaming, we have also added some games that are sure to take your student’s gaming experience to the next level. So make sure to check in every Tuesday for brand new games.

This blog is dedicated to sharing with you what has worked for us over the past fifteen years in youth ministry. We’ll share games, insights and other great resources that we have used to develop our strategies and games.

We look forward to hearing from you as well. Feedback makes all of us better. If you like a game, make sure to let us know. If you think our Game of the Week stinks, share with us why. All we ask is that you make it constructive so that we can improve upon what we have.

Once again, thank you for checking our Student Ministry Games blog. Let the games begin!
