Each team will write down a descriptive sentence about a character from the Bible on the blank cardstock cards or paper. Remember not to use any proper nouns! For instance, Bathsheba’s character could say, “I am a female. My son was known as the wisest man who ever lived.” The object of the game is to get the other teams to guess the correct character that you have written about. Give each team a minute to guess the correct character. After playing your desired number of rounds, add up the scores. The team with the most number of correct answers is the winner.
