This a real good decent game for conducting in cell groups....

Would be great instead of just saying, "Sit down" when starting a large-group talk, etc. Something that stands out to me though...beware of things that are embarrassing to kids :)

Now you can make it even more interactive if you want. Make beforehand a list of things and put them in a basket. Then take the first paper and say Stand up if... the second will be "sit down if" and so on.. Go on in this way for 10 papers and see who'se still standing, those win. Then you can start over with round two (with the rest of the papers)
