In this screen game, you'll display the icon for a famous app and your students compete to be the first person to get the correct answer. It's an app showdown at high noon!


We use apps on our mobile devices pretty much every moment of the day, but how well do your students know the names of the apps on their Home Screens? What if we only showed you their icon? This game, which will be surprisingly easy for most students, includes question-and-answer slides of 10 famous apps and a tiebreaker round to settle the debate. The game will be fast-paced and fun. You can play it in a variety of ways:

Our favorite: have contestants stay seated in their chairs, and when they think they know the app, run to the front and press a buzzer or ring a bell. The first to three wins the game! And if you don't have a buzzer, make one of your volunteers ""be"" the buzzer! Have them move around the room to make it more challenging or fun.

Another method of playing this game is to have students stand back to back in showdown mode, where they can see the questions but have to be the first to ring in before their opponent. It'll be a showdown at high noon in your youth group.

Use it for parents during a tech workshop or training night. It'll be fun to see if they know the games that their kids are playing!

In short, there are lots of ways to play this game! No matter how you do it, it'll be SO fun, fast-paced, and a blast. Kids love their phones and they'll love this game!

  • Complete PowerPoint game file
