I was assigned to teach the YW/YM a couple weeks ago for a combined 5th Sunday class, and decided to make it a game. I google searched for ideas, trying to see what other people have done in the past, and there were some really great ideas. From those ideas, I borrowed a little bit from this idea, and a little bit from that idea, and came up with the following game, all thanks to the ideas from teachers before me who have shared their ideas online. So I am in their debt, and I thought it only right that I should pay it forward by sharing the game that was created out of their collected ideas.
So here’s how it goes. Keep in mind, in my ward, we have a pretty small group of youth (about 10), so you may need to adjust the details to better fit the size of your group. For us, I asked all the leaders to play too so that it made the groups bigger (and so there was a clear separation of which adults helped which team if a kid didn’t know an answer).
I had them split into two groups, with an even ratio of boys to girls, and adults to youth.
There are 5 categories of questions, and each of the five category titles are taped across the top of a wall. There are 10 questions per category. Like Jeopardy, each question in a given category is worth an ascending amount of points (Question 1 is worth 100 points, question 2 is worth 200 points, and so on). So under each category, is taped 10 sheets of paper, each with the number of points it represents (again in ascending order from top to bottom). For anyone that’s seen Jeopardy, I’m sure you get the idea.
A coin is flipped to determine which team goes first (let’s say it was Team 1).
As the first member of each team approaches the “mark”, the member from Team 1 gets to choose which category and number of points. Then for the next round, the member from Team 2 gets to choose. In theory, the larger the points, the harder the question. Only you have an idea of how much your kids know, so only you can decide which questions you consider are harder than others. So when you get to the list of questions I came up with, what I may have considered a 1000 point question for my group, might be more of a 400 point question for yours. Feel free to adjust as necessary.
Something else to keep in mind, if you have an even number of members on each team, then the same people will always be the ones to get to choose. In this case, once you’ve gone through a full rotation, switch to the other side, so that everyone has a chance to be the “chooser”.
Once a player has successfully found the plate with the correct answer, the winner can pull the piece of paper from the wall that reflected the points it represented. This serves two purposes. One, it lets everyone know which questions are left to choose from. And two, at the end of the game, the teams can each just count up the points on their papers, no need for someone to actively keep score throughout the game.
That’s pretty much the logistics of the game. The kids seemed to really have fun with it, and even the adults enjoyed it too.
So, if you’re curious to know the questions I came up with, here they are. Feel free to use them, or come up with your own. And as I mentioned earlier, adjust their worth in points as you see fit. (Also, if you replace any questions with your own, just make sure the answer doesn’t already exist in the game for another question. Every question should only match up to one plate that can answer it.)

Category 5: Finish this Sentence
Q1: Faith without works is ______.
Q2: Let he who hath no sin, cast the first ______.
(*Note: So this one I ran into a small issue, obviously the answer to this one is stone. However, earlier in the game, Q4 from Bible Stories came up. Now I had “sling” as the answer to that question. But one of the kids found the plate with “stone” first and held that up as the answer. Technically, stone could be considered an answer to that question, even though it wasn’t the one I intended. After I informed them that “stone” isn’t actually the answer I was looking for, the player from the other team found “sling” and got the points. Luckily, the first kid was a good sport, and didn’t mind that the points went to the other team when technically his answer wasn’t wrong. But I wanted to bring this up to explain the importance of why its necessary that each question only has one plate that can answer it.)
Q3: Charity never _______.
