This game is perfect to get any size group of people talking - students, volunteers and even parents. We have used it for both small groups and large regional youth gatherings.

Here's how it works: students sit down across from each other in rows. Each pair has 35 seconds to introduce themselves and answer the question on the screen. After the time is up, one row of students move down a seat and everyone gets a new partner to play with. The last slide is a setup for leader's choice.

This Resource Includes:
• Drop-and-Play 8-minute video (mp4 file)
• Or, if you don't want to show the video you can play this with a complete PowerPoint game file
• Individual (11 rounds + instructions) game slides (jpeg files)
• Title slide (jpeg file)

And for fun, here's an episode of the More Than Dodgeball show where Doug & Josh talk youth ministry games. Enjoy the laugh and then go run great games of your own!

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!
