The Amazing Race... to Christ

3.5 stars

This idea is like similar to other amazing races but with a definite twist.

Amazing RaceSplit into groups of four or five, making sure each group has adequate supervision based on their age group.  

Make up a list of directions that scurry your teams across town to various challenges or clues that lead them to the next challenge.

The final clue brings the first team to a waiting area, however, the twist is, along their journey, they will witness a person with a flat tire, a elderly person who has dropped their bag (purse or groceries) and a homeless person with a sign for help.  Each of these people are part of the game. You can also come up with your own ideas for what they need help with.

The winning team is not who completes the trip first, it's the team who is the best "Samaritan" and Christ-like. The winning team puts aside personal gain and assist the people in need.

When the last team arrives at the finish line, the three people who needed help arrive also and report who helped.

Thanks a lot for this game. This is so far one of the best games that I've come across this site: perfect for young adults, great life lesson, Biblical, and something that would stick around with people as long as they live. :)
