July 24th, 2019 What's better than throwing things at other people? Throwing things at people in the name of Jesus! If you are looking for an active icebreaker to open up your youth night, check this out!
Materials Needed: two or three squishy dodgeballs or bundled up bandanas.
How To Play: Have your group form a circle and have everyone face inwards. Ask for two volunteers and have them come to the middle of the circle. One of your volunteers is now the queen/king and the other volunteer is the royal protection squad (RPS). The job of the RPS is to protect the queen from being attacked by the people in the circle that is surrounding them. When you give the green light, throw the ball to someone in the outer circle. That person is now going to try to hit the queen with the ball. They can throw it directly at the queen or they can pass it to someone else in the circle who might have a better angle for throwing. The RPS will be trying to block every attack that comes at the queen. Sometimes the ball gets smacked way out of range by the RPS. Throw in another ball and run for the one that got smacked to keep the game going. If you want to make the game harder you can add a second ball to the circle. Once the queen is hit by the ball they move to the outer circle, the RPS is now the queen/king, and the person that hit the queen is now the RPS. You can have the game go for as long as you want! Enjoy.
