This game is free, however it is only to be used for classroom and personal use. It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit. Reproduction or retransmission of any materials, in whole or in part, in any manner, is not permitted.
Sitting Duck! Answer questions about the liturgical year as you make your way around the board. Be careful for the "Sitting Duck!" space or you might have to go all the way back to START.
(You can play this game with 4 people or divide the group into 4 teams.) Place your marker on START. Determine who goes first and play moves clockwise. The player to your left draws a card. On most of the cards are questions about the liturgical year. If you answer the question correctly you get to roll the die and move the number indicated on the die. If you answer the question incorrectly, you stay where you are. If the card says “Go Back 2” etc. you must follow the directions. If you land on the picture of a target, you lose your next turn. If you land on a sitting duck, all players must say out loud “Sitting Duck!” Another player who happens to come by on the game board (they can land on the space or just be passing by on their roll) can BUMP you back to START. The first player to FINISH wins.
