Crisis! You’ve got 10 minutes to come up with a great youth ministry game for your students. What do you do? Chances are, you reach into your back pocket and pull out an old standby game that works time and time again. Here are a few classics that can be ready in an instant.

The Look-Up Game
This game can be used for groups of 6 or 60! Everybody stands in a circle and looks down with eyes closed. On the count of 3, everybody looks up and INSTANTLY looks directly toward somebody else in the circle. If that same person happens to be looking at you, you are both out! Repeat over and over until there is a winner…the last person standing!

What Are The Odds?
This is a great game that can get out of hand, or even inappropriate, if it isn’t monitored, so play wisely…but have fun!

Person A: “Hey person B, what are the odds you’d be willing to stand on the chair and sing the national anthem in front of the whole restaurant?” (Or any challenge person A comes up with)

Person B: “Hmmm…I dunno…maybe one in 40 (or whatever odds he/she comes up with).”

At this point, on the count of 3 both people yell out a number between 1 and 40. If they match, Person B has to complete the challenge.

Dodge Sock
Okay, you gotta be pretty desperate for this one, but it works every time. When in a pinch simply ask somebody to remove their socks, roll them into a ball, make a pretty tight parameter and play “dodge sock.” It’s basically just ball tag with a pair of socks. Don’t ask me why, but it works every time.

We’ll be back with 3 more tomorrow!
