Hot Hands is a fast-paced video-based game with a twist. In this group game, students will sit in a circle with their friends and add their hand(s) to the chaos in the middle. Whoever’s hand is ‘caught in the hot’ will have to perform the punishment after each round. The entire game is run on screen making this game simple and fire (pun intended)!

Gameplay Rules:
Students will sit in groups of 3-8 people. Before the round begins, each group will need to choose which student will start. When the video begins, students will add their hands into the middle of the circle ONE-BY-ONE in a counterclockwise direction (think of a football team huddling up to shout “GO TEAM” but putting their hands into the middle one at a time). As each student in the group adds one of their hands to the middle, eventually the process will make its way back to the start. At this point, each student will then add their OTHER hand. This process will continue infinitely in a counter-clockwise direction. When students run out of hands, the hand on the bottom of the pile will move to the top. The video will eventually prompt the groups to stop. Whoever has their hand on the top of the pile when the game comes to a halt is the “Hot Hand” and he/she must complete the punishment for the round which will be revealed on screen.

Free Ebook by Doug Fields

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
