Scripture Pictures

The object of this game is to draw pictures of scripture words for team members to identify. Mount cards on lightweight cardboard, cut apart, and stack facedown. Choose teams, and provide each team with pencil and paper.

First player announces which category he will draw from, then picks card. He has one minute to draw picture illustrating word(s) in chosen category. He may not spell out any words, use numbers, or speak. If his team guesses word(s) within 1 minute, they receive following points:

O (Object) = 2 points,

P/A (Person or Animal) = 3 points,

A (Action) = 4 points,

C (Challenge) = 5 points.

If team can’t guess word(s) within one minute, player reads scripture listed. If team then guesses word(s), they receive 1 point. Teams alternate turns. First team to earn 25 points after teams have had equal number of turns wins. Create additional cards by using Topical Guide in the LDS edition of Bible.
