How to Play Froggy Murder

how to play froggy murder

My cousin taught me how to play Froggy Murder at a family reunion.  Froggy Murder doesn’t take any set up, and it’s a fun activity you can use to fill up time at the end of a Wednesday evening or camp activity.  All ages can play the game, and it’s lots of fun to see how dramatically people act out when they’re dead. Variation of: Wink Murder Safer form of:…

Cheap Dating Relief Society Activity with game

Kristina M shared: “I recently was asked to teach an enrichment on “cheap dates.”    Everyone’s ideas of “cheap” dates are different but there are a lot (over 120) date ideas that we came up with.  I put it on a Excel Document, and each tab (at the bottom) is different. “I give a basic explanation on the first tab.  But basically I copied on to 3 different color papers for…

Heads Up

I just had a great idea for a SM game! My students love playing a game on their phones called “Heads Up”. I just figured out that you can create customisable decks, so I created a deck with the SM references on them. It tests SM both ways – one student (or more) needs to be able to describe the SM from the reference, while the other, holding the phone to their head, needs to be able to guess the reference from the description.
Great idea! Love this game!
I can’t wait to surprise my students with it tomorrow!
So where do you find yours or do we have to do all ourselves! ?
Cool—-can you provide technical assisstance
We LOVE that game. I never even thought about making my own SM deck! Thanks :)
NICE!!!!!!! Great idea, thanks for the tip.
Uhh, little miss tech challenged here…is it an app for your phone?
Yes!! I love this game and have it. Can’t wait to do this!
Just buy the phone app called “Heads Up”, then get the in-app purchase to design your own deck. Once you have that it is really easy, choose the ‘design your own deck’, type in the SM references in at a time, choose a picture for your deck if you like, and you’re done! It cost me 79p to buy the app and 79p for the in-app purchase – UK (I believe it is 99c each USA)

How fun! Thanks for the idea!
I don’t love to purchase apps, but my kids just may “wake up” for this one! Buying And making! Thanks!!? : )
I LOVE this idea!
Thank you for sharing this!!
ha! I have 2 kids out of 25 in the class with smart phones. some of my kids have no phone & no computer.
Nanette Rasband Hilton, you only need it on your own phone to use in class. One phone with the game set up on it will work for the whole group.
i love this idea but i cannot find how to buy the make-it-yourself part. please help
Kathleen Stancliffe, open the app and scroll down. In the section titled “More Decks” you will find one called “Build Your Own Deck.” When you click on it, it will ask you for your apple ID/password.
thanks Jeanne Gilmore Merrell, but there is not one titled that – i guess my problem may be i don’t have an iphone? i downloaded the app and it gave me 35 games but nothing anywhere says “build your own deck” ;(
We’ve played something similar – not an app but a real game called Hedbandz – get a partner and put a SM card up on your forehead and ask questions til you guess which one it is. Fun and easy!
Thanks RaNae Shoaf
Nannette, you’re very fortunate. All 30 of my students have smart phones. We had to ban electronic devices from seminary because of constant texting and game playing.
@ Jim yes, my kids loose ‘breakfast points’ for the whole class if they have their phones out during class–peer pressure to keep the few who are addicted to their phones focused. I don’t allow any electronics in class–only printed scriptures.
