A fun, fill-in-the-blank game, where students get to guess at what the crazy headlines really are. It's playable as a team, or as a free-for-all.


Doug's note: we had some hilarious responses to this in our youth group.

In this screen game, you'll find real headlines, with a few key words taken out, and no limits to what your students can come up with. 

A fun, fill-in-the-blank game, where students get to guess at what the (real, but) crazy headlines actually are. It makes for a great team game, or individual free-for-all game, that can be adjusted for your needs. It can be played in 10-15 minutes. 

Simply choose how to split the room (or not), and then get ready. 
Round 1, each headline is worth 1 point.
Round 2, each headline is worth 3 points.
Round 3, each headline is worth 5 points. 

This game, if played with two teams, can't result in a tie, and is set to keep things close. A team can win rounds 1 and 2 but get swept in round 3 to lose the whole game. It takes 25 points to secure a victory.

About this Product
Don't let students use their phones. These are real headlines that they can find online to cheat. • If you have a team that is seemingly running away with the win, be a biased judge and tip the scales. • Team names aren't required, but "Daily Bugle" and "Daily Planet" are great ones, plus you get a free discussion on Marvel vs DC.
