We know that hosting an all-nighter or event that lasts several hours can be challenging to fill up with fun games, so we’ve dropped ten of our favorites right here for you:
9. WHO DAT?
3. HUNGER GAMES
You can also check out some other lists:
So there you have it, a fantastic list of games that will carry you well into 2014!
PREP TIME– None
ITEMS NEEDED– Tons of Rubber Bands (thousands if possible)
GAME TIME– 2-5 Minutes
PARTICIPANTS– 2-4 Teams of 3 (or more if you’d like!)
This is one of those games that I had absolutely nothing to do with. One of our youth leaders, Tony Rodriguez came up with this one all be himself. It’s so good, that I decided to share it with you.
PREP TIME– 5-10 minutes
We are so excited to share this Tuesday’s Game of the Week, that we are actually making it two times as awesome! That’s right, two games for the price of one! Come to think of it, all our games are free, so double of nothing is still nothing… but I digress.
The first game we are introducing is one that everyone of my students still remember today. It’s called the SODA SOCK SWIG. As you’ll see, I have a basic format for all my games that allows you to see the following: PREP TIME, ITEMS NEEDED, GAME TIME, PARTICIPANTS, INSTRUCTIONS & occasional BONUS TIPS.
PREP TIME – 3 Minutes
ITEMS NEEDED – 1 Table, 6 Pack of Soda
GAME TIME – 2 Minutes
PARTICIPANTS – 6
Before choosing 6 students to participate, don’t mention the name of the game, just have 6 cans of soda sitting on the table in front (put the table on a stage or platform if possible). Once you have chosen your participants, tell them that they will be in a race against the other 5 to see who can completely finish the soda first. Let them open the soda. Start your countdown, then stop them and tell them that you forgot something: they all need to take off one of their socks and put it over the top of the soda can before they race. You usually get a good (or grossed out) reaction here. After the socks are in place, restart your countdown. But you are still not done. Stop the countdown and have them hand their can to the person on their right. That’s right! They will be drinking the soda through someone else’s sock! Gross? Yes! Awesome? Absolutely!
