If you don’t have a full set of extreme games on rotation for your church’s middle school through high schoolers, it’s not a biblical youth group.
But old standbys like Steal the Bacon and Chubby Bunny just aren’t gonna cut it with today’s youth. You need REAL EXTREME MOUNTAIN DEW-POWERED YOUTH GROUP GAMES BROUGHT TO YOU BY MOUNTAIN DEW CODE RED.
Dont have any ideas for this Sunday? Don’t wig out—we got you fam.
Here are 9 of our favorite extreme youth group games:
1.) A good old-fashioned Western duel – Dust off your church’s set of Colt revolvers hanging above the baptistry and have a great time seeing who’s the fastest gunslinger in the West.
2.) Dodgebus – Exactly what it sounds like.
3.) Vape ring contest – Who can blow the best vape rings? What about seeing who can form Bible characters like Moses and Noah with their vapes? Forget glory clouds—your youth room will be full of raspberry-scented vape smoke in no time.
4.) Circumcise the Shechemites – this fun, wacky game is best played shirts v. skins.
5.) Smear the unrepentant heathen – Pick out that weird, unsaved kid who’s visiting for the first time, and chase him around the room until the group can smear that unrepentant heathen. You’re just showin’ the love of Christ, baby!
6.) Axis & Allies: Settlers Of Battlestar Galactica 40K – Mash up all the world’s best lengthy board games into one sprawling 14-hour session. Will the Nazis conquer Moscow, or will the Cylon traitors stop them before they can trade for that final elusive sheep they need to build a Space Hulk? Madness!
7.) The Hunger Games – This one’s easy to throw together last-minute if the regular youth minister didn’t show up again and you don’t have anything prepared. Just drop the kids off in the wilderness, and last one standing wins. They’ll think Jesus and the gospel are sooooo cool when you drop this INSANE game on em out of the blue!
8.) Spin the grape juice bottle – Get your mind out of the gutter—nobody’s getting a peck on the cheek in this sanctified version of the classic party game. Whoever the Welch’s bottle sovereignly chooses has to read a paragraph out of Joshua Harris’s “I Kissed Dating Goodbye” to the whole group. ABSOLUTELY MENTAL!
9.) Bible drill: SUDDEN DEATH – Whoever looks up John 3:16 the slowest is going straight down a trap door to hell. Zany AND educational!
