Let the debate begin as students pick one of two items to be erased from existence forever.

Here's how it works: each round, two items will show on the screen. Students get to discuss, debate and decide which item will continue to exist and which will go away forever, never to return again. It starts with classic debates (cats or dogs, donuts or ice cream) but gets a little odder with each round (cell phones or deodorant).

There are several ways you can play this game:
• Pull up two students each round and have them face off debate style. Let the crowd vote on the winner.
• Do a poll with each round. Majority wins and moves on to the next round.
• Divide into teams. Have teams decide together on a choice. Most team votes wins the round and those teams get a point. Most points after 10 rounds win.
• Just throw up the slides and let the students discuss/debate. No winners, just great interaction.

This Resource Includes:
• Complete editable PowerPoint game file
• Individual (10 rounds + instructions) game slides (jpeg files)
• Template slide for customization (photoshop required)
• Title slide (jpeg file)

I've been fortunate to serve 20+ years at the same church. Over that time I have been able to craft a plethora of experiences and resources that help students and parents in their spiritual journey, and I love that through DYM I now have the opportunity to share them with you. My beautiful wife Janelle and I have four amazing children ages 10 and under. I love the Cubs, the Colts, comic books, podcasts, and going to Disney World.

Oh, I have a podcast too! It's all about my story of 20+ years of Student Ministry at the same church, lessons learned and people met along the way. You can check My Third Decade out by clicking on the DYM Podcast Network tab.

Conversation starter!
Used this as an intro game and had students move from one side of the room to the other based on their "votes". It provided some good conversations and helped break the ice between some of our students.
Great Game
Games that spark conversation work best in my context. This game did just that. Great game, Derry!

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!
