Here's another great Bible Quiz or General Knowledge game that you
can make and then use in class or with friends.
A score pad and pencil.
Sheets of A4 white paper and thin card.
Printed out sheets of the game parts.
Glue Stick or office paste.
Setting up the Game:
Print out the Pond pattern onto thin card. Then print out four
copies of the Frog, Rock and Crocodile patterns. Cut out the
parts and glue the crocodile and the blank parts under the rocks.
This will give you 12 rocks with a crocodile and 12 rocks
that are blank underneath.
Choose two teams and what colour frogs they will use. Someone
shuffles all the rock cards and then places them face down all
over the pond. Teams then place all their frogs in a pile
on the "Start" position.
Grades 3 - 6 (9 to 12 years).
Playing the Game:
The aim of the game is for each team to jump their frogs over the
pond rock by rock until they reach the "Safe" zone. To begin,
Team "A" asks Team "B" a question from their quiz list (or any
Bible general knowledge question). If Team "B" cannot answer,
or answers incorrectly, they cannot move a frog. If they
answer correctly, they can then throw the dice.
If a 1, 2 or a 3 is thrown then Team "B" can then jump their first
frog onto that number of rocks (moving in any direction).
They must turn over the final rock they land on. If a
crocodile is under that rock, then frog has been "Gobbled Up".
The rock and the frog must be removed and placed to one side and
is lost to the team.
On the other hand, if the rock is a blank, then Team "B" leave their
frog on this rock and wait for their next turn. Team "B"
then asks Team "A" a question and they move accordingly if their
answer is correct. Play then continues moving one frog at a
time until all the frogs have either reached the "Safe" zone or
have been "Gobbled Up".
Frogs can only jump to an adjacent rock (straight forward or
diagonally up or down one rock level. If there are no
adjacent rocks, then the frog cannot move any further and must be
abandoned on the rock that it landed on. This rock and frog
are then dead to play and no other frog can land on it.
The Winning Team:
The team with the most frogs in the "Safe" zone at the end of the
game is the winner!
