I have been coordinating our church youth group for a year and a half and am still finding new, terrific games from this book. They are all fun games and many don't need lots of prep/supplies. I also have mostly a small group- about 5-10 so there are lot of games they can play. It is even great for our one large event of the year- our Lock-In. The big group games in there are great for 30 or so kids. If you have anything to do with a youth ministry or just need to entertain a big group of kids with safe, healthy, fun activities- GET THIS BOOK!

We are always looking for easy and fun game ideas for youth- especially games with a point. I appreciate the fact that these games have been tested so we don't have to make our youth the "guinea pigs". Helpful hints are included throughout the book from the author to help make your games more successful. Furthermore, we learn how to avoid problems and common pitfalls during our game experiences. What a great resource to have on the shelf....I imagine we'll be pulling it out quite often over the years.

Scattered throughout this book are Gaming Tips, which give essential suggestions and insights on everything from choosing, beginning, to leading a game.
I am new to leading a group of 8-12 yr. old girls in my church. I am not very creative when it comes to games and activities I am more of a preacher. So, I was looking for some help. This book gave me great ideas. I don't use every game, because some will not work. For the most part I have been using a new game within this book each week.
There are about two to three games per page. Especially the last chapter on how NOT to lead games with your youth group was great. I am new to this and need all the advice I can get!
I highly recommend this book for new and exciting games to play with your youth!

Lots of good games. I had seen or played many before, but there were lots of new games, and good ideas to twist and change them. Some of my favorite parts were about keeping all kids involved, handling games gone wrong, etc... games range from sitting in chairs and writing things down to rolling in the mud and making a huge mess! It's a good addition to a youth pastors tool box.
