Some Fun and Games

Yesterday was Mrs. Lori's funeral, and afterwards, a bunch of people from the camp got together and ate dinner and played games. It was a good healing time of fellowship, but I also learned some fun new games.

I'm sure most of you have played 2 Truths and A Lie, where one person says three things about themselves, one of them being untrue, and everyone has to guess which is the lie. It's funny and you learn lots of new things about people.

Last night, though, we played a different sort of version. Everyone wrote their name and the start of a story about them on a piece of paper, so something like, "Leah: the time I fell in the Pacific Ocean". Then, the host would draw out a story and call up 3 people, one of them being that person. She would say, "Tell us about the time you fell in the Pacific Ocean." They'd get a minute to think, and then they each had to share a story, two of the people making it up. The audience then votes on who had the true story. The funny part is when the event actually happened to all three of the people!

We also played Four on a Couch, which is an annoying and complicated game, but still fun in its own way. If you don't know it, look it up.

We also played a game of Celebrity, only we played more a Charades version. Everyone wrote down 4 guessable words/phrases and put them in a bowl. The first round was miming only. No pointing to objects/people in the room, no sounds, no words. After that, you put all the words back in, and you had to get people to guess by using only words, no hand motions, and none of the words on the card. The final round, you could say only one word. At this point, most people knew the words, so you could say only one word and they'd get it. But you have to say the right word - or they won't be able to guess!

I've got to go now, but I hope you enjoyed hearing the games!

Love and Laughter,
