[Freebie Friday] “Bring em Up” Youth Group Game

bring-em-up- youth group game freebie friday blog postMy friend, Austin McCann shared a youth group game recently on his blog that seemed really legit. In my experience, coming up with new innovative and fun games during youth group are hard so I try to regularly share new games that I find. So, check this out:

“I’m always looking for quick, easy games that are fun for my students. I want to share with you a game I have done many times that is easy to pull off and is always a hit with students. I want to share with you the media I have used for this game so you can use it with your group.  The game is called “Bring Em Up.” You probably have heard or even done this game before, but called it something else. There are tons of names and variations to this game.

You can tweak the game to fit your students, but here is how I have done it. First, split your group into two teams. Then explain that you are going to call out a random thing (can be anything you want, be creative!) and the first team to have someone bring me what I request gets a point. As you will see with this freebie, I usually do about ten rounds so I have ten random things picked out. Keep track of the point for each team throughout the game and always have a tie breaker ready if need be.

It’s a simple, but fun game. If your creative it’s a great way to get your students interacting and burning some energy. This is always a good thing for middle school students! Below is the link for you to media for this game for FREE! It’s a PowerPoint file, but you can always export the slides as image files and import them into whatever program you use for your media.”

  1. More than 700 families within the Pittston Area and Wyoming Area School Districts are served.
    You should also consider advertising on other business’s websites or in small locally distributed newspapers. The Broncos will also field a race team for October 7 Race for the Cure and will be a partner of the annual Pink Tie Affair Gala on October 27.
