How To Put Together A File Folder Game


Once you have a file folder game picked out, follow these steps:

1. Print out the template.

2. Cut out the game board and game pieces, and all the other parts of the game that may be included. Trim where needed.

3. Lay down a manila folder so you can open it as if you were going to read a book.

4. Label the manila folder with the name of the game. Some folks will include the label as part of a template download. In this case, glue the label on the tab. If no label is included make your own or just write it on the tab.

5. Glue the game instructions to the front of the manila folder. Instructions are usually included as part of the template download.

6. Open the folder and glue the game board down in the appropriate spots (left side/right side).

7. Store game pieces in a plastic bag for safe keeping.

8. Open the folder and laminate or cover with clear contact paper.

9. Laminate or cover game cards with clear contact paper to make them last.






*I have been notified that where all my files are located they will probably start charging soon. My game files are HUGE and to keep my games FREE I have started a group to store them.

A


Act of Contrition Board Game- For 2 Players or 2 Teams. The idea is to answer questions about the Act of Contrition so players can roll the dice and move their pieces up and down the road attempting to capture their opponent’s pieces. The form of capture is unique because the captured piece is not immediately removed but instead is placed under the capturing piece. The capturing piece is placed on top of the captured piece to form a stack (if you capture an opponent’s piece, their playing piece is placed under yours). On his next turn the capturing player starts to move the stack of pieces back along the road towards his home position the number of spaces indicated by the throw count. When the capturing player reaches the home position the captured piece is removed from the board.

If you land on a square that’s already occupied by another pawn, there’s gonna be a Showdown! The two players on the square have a Definition read to them by another player. If you’re first to blurt the correct word, you win the Showdown and may remain on the square. If you’re not first, you have to go backward the amount of squares shown on the die.

Tithing: How much do you tithe?- Players move around the board while figuring out how much they should tithe. If you land on the piggy bank that is hungry, you did not put God first and spent all your money. You did not leave any money to do tithing and therefore lose your next turn. If you land on Tightwad, all other players say out loud “TIGHTWAD!” because you refuse to give any money so you must change places with the player that is closest to START. Players roll the die and continue to move around the board. The first player to FINISH wins.

Tower of Babel Jenga Game- This is a variation on the popular game of Jenga with players taking turns drawing a card and asking the player to their left a question about the Tower of Babel. If the player does not answer the question correctly, they must carefully remove a block with one hand (you can switch hands whenever you wish) from anywhere BELOW the highest completed story. Then stack it on top of the tower, at right angles to the blocks just below it. If the player answers the question correctly, the player that asked the question must remove one block from the tower. Play continues clockwise. The last player to take a turn without making the Tower of Babel fall wins the game.
