While the vast majority of our games don’t have a larger teaching point, this one can be great in talking about concentration and observation. It will also teach them to look for things that might not seem to matter at first.
PREP TIME– 10-30 Minutes
ITEMS NEEDED– YouTube Clips & Projector/TV Screen to View
GAME TIME– 10-20 Minutes
PARTICIPANTS– Everyone – with 3-5 Participants per Team
Before you start, pick some famous funny movie clips (make sure you can show them in church!). The clips should be about 30 seconds each and will need to involve: dialogue, background material, names of people or places.
Watch each clip and create a question. For instance, watch the following clip before reading on.
You would then form a question from the clip: “Where were the donuts from?” or “What did Tommy get lodged in ‘this’ region?”
It can make some easy ones and incorporate some more difficult ones, like the color of a tie, the name on a sign, the song that was playing in the background, etc.
This is a fun game to play, but make sure that clips are funny and relevant to your group.
Split your entire group into teams and have them write their answer down for each question. The team with the most right at the end of your 10 clips wins! Make sure to include a tie-breaker- whoever answers first will then be the winner.
1. Use a blend of newer and older clips to give a little diversity. You can use funny music videos as well.
2. To put a personal touch on the game, record your own video and mix it in with the others.
3. Don’t use clips that are more than sixty seconds, it just drags on too long.
