EVERYTHING IN YOUTH MINISTRY STARTS HERE

I have been serving in youth ministry for nearly 20 years, am currently the Director of Student Ministries at Valley Church in Des Moines, IA, and am on a first name basis with several Best Buy and Apple employees. My wife Keri and I have been married over ten years and have three great boys. My four favorite things are Jesus, my wife, Chicago Style Pizza, and fighting off our boys with sweet ninja moves.

What we’re playin’ this week is a game called, “One Arm, Two Arm, None.” This is one of our group’s favorite games…mine too due to the super easy setup, the amount of fun in the room, and the interaction it encourages.

One Arm, Two Arm, None is an elimination game that starts with the entire group and ends up with one winner. The game randomly choses a character with either one arm up, two arms up, or no arms up. the people in your group who match the image are out.  This means you have a 66% change of staying in the game.  You can switch the rules and say you have to match the image to stay in, this make it a little tougher.  The cool thing about playing it the second way is that the person who wins would have guessed right 100% of the time.  Check out this video of the game below, and head over to crowdcontrolgames.com to read this suggested rules and pick up your copy of  “One Arm, Two Arm, None” before your next gathering.

    Hey Early,
    Could you hook us up with a discount from this place. I loved playing this game in your workshop at SYMC, the $25 price tag has held me back.
    Thanks.

      I wish I could oost,
      They did say they were going to drop their prices but I do not know when. Send them an email asking about the cost. Truth is $25 a game sounds high but you have it forever.
      Sorry,
      Brandon

    Hey Brandon, we recently got this at our church, but are struggling to transition between our presentation program (Propresenter) and the game seamlessly so the audience doesn’t notice. Do you have any tips?
    -Thanks!

    • Absolutely. In ProPresenter 5 you have an output burton near the upper right corner. Use that button to toggle ProPresenter on and off on your main projection. Open 1arm, 2arm None, flip on the projection switch (so the game is constantly on the main screen). ProPresenter overrides everything, so as long as the game is running you can toggle ProPresenter’s output button on and off and the tradition is seemless.
