1 GAME: Follow the Leader – Distraction

Game / Bible / Life Connection:  

  1. Before you start, choose a Coach to be a “Distracter.” Do not tell Players this is happening. That Coach is going to walk around distracting the Players from following the leader. If you have a large group you may want to have more than one “Distracter.”
  2. Tell the Players that the Game Zone Leader will be the “Leader” for the first round.
  3. Have all the Players line up behind the “Leader.” The “Leader” then moves around and all the Players have to mimic the “Leaders” actions.
  4. Any Players who fail to follow or do what the “Leader” does are out of the game and sat down on the sidelines.
  5. When only one Player other than the “Leader” remains that Player is now the new “Leader,” and the game begins again with all the Players joining the line once again.
  6. Play several rounds as time allows.
