Games:

The Catholic Toolbox- Liturgical Objects Used in Mass
Several games posted: Liturgical Memory and Go Fish Card Game, What am I? (card game), What am I? (file folder game), and Liturgical Bingo.

The Catholic Toolbox- People at Church
Several games posted: People at Church Cards (to play Memory or Go Fish), Who am I? (card game), Who am I? (file folder games)

Liturgy of the Word Sequence Card Game- For 2 to 4 players print out at least 2 copies of each page (for more players print more copies). Shuffle cards and the Dealer deals out 4 cards to each player. Dealer puts cards down in the middle of the table, turns over the top card, and places it beside the deck. From the cards in his hand the Dealer must place the next card in the sequence of the Liturgy of the Word on top of the card facing up. If he does not have the proper card, he must draw a card from the deck. Play moves clockwise. If the deck runs out, play moves to the next player clockwise and game continues. The first player to run out of cards wins.

Participants & Liturgical Objects Used in Mass Board Game- The ultimate objective is to move all of your game pieces off of the board before your opponent does and to have the largest number of game pieces remaining in your possession. This game can be played individually or in teams.

Mass Review File Folder Game- The idea is to answer questions about Mass so you can trap one or more opponents’ pieces between two of your pieces. Those opponents’ pieces then change color to become your pieces. The game ends when both you and your opponent cannot play another piece, or if every square on the board is filled, the game is over. You count up the number of black pieces and the number of white pieces and the winner is the one with the most pieces. Mass Review is for 2 players or 2 teams.
