Life-Size Game - Battleship

This week we played life-sized Battleship in mutual. This is what we did:

  1. We prepared questions for the game. You can download ours here or do your own! We used For the Strength of Youth, but you could do this as a conference review, scripture mastery, etc.
  2. We filled some socks with flour and put rubber bands around the openings to keep them closed.
  3. We set up a volleyball net out on the field by our church. We covered the net with sheets so that you couldn't see from one side to the other.
  4. We had the youth divide into two even teams.
  5. We had the youth lay down on their side of the net and pretend to be battleships (they were told they couldn't move around at all).
  6. We had leaders be judges to see who raised their hand first and to make sure the youth didn't move around, etc.
  7. We had one leader assigned to read the questions.
Game Play:
  1. For the Strength of Youth books were distributed to all youth (open-book game).
  2. A question was read and anybody could raise their hand to answer. The first hand in the air got to answer.
  3. The first team to guess the correct answer got to toss a flour sock over the net in hopes of "sinking a battleship."
  4. If you were hit, you were sunk and had to sit out for the remainder of the game. You could still raise your hand with answers and help your team.
  5. The first team to sink all of the other team's ships won the game. We let our winners have their refreshments first (while the losing team helped clean up) but you could do prizes!

I can see chalking or taping out squares as well for the youth to stand in.
