Random Acts of Kindness (file folder game)



Jesus was always kind and helpful to the people he met. Jesus showed his love by caring for those who needed his healing touch. The next time you want to let someone know how much you care for them, remember that we show others we care, not just by sending flowers and gifts, but by showing acts of kindness each and every day -- just like Jesus did.


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 It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit.





Kindness can be contagious. The smallest and most simplest acts of kindness can make a difference in someone’s life in a very big way.



Random Acts of Kindness: Children identify Random Acts of Kindness as they move around the board.




Place your marker any where on the game board. Roll the die and move clockwise that many spaces. Read out loud whatever is on your space and say whether it is a Random Act of Kindness or not. If it is a Random Act of Kindness, receive 1 Random Acts of Kindness token (or milk cap, poker chip, etc.). If it is not a Random Act of Kindness, lose a token. When the player receives 10 Random Acts of Kindness tokens, they work their way around the board to “Spread Kindness”. Players must roll the exact number to “Spread Kindness”. Continue playing to find out who comes in second, third, fourth, etc. place.

Game Board


Set Up: Place your game pieces near square number one. Shuffle the deck and place it face down in a small basket near the game board. Put an empty basket nearby for the discards.


Rules: Basically the game is like Chutes and Ladders. Roll the die and move the corresponding number of squares. Each player gets one roll each turn. If you land on a square with an arrow on it, follow the arrow to where it ends. Arrows can go up or down. If you land on a prophet square, the person on your right picks up a Question Card and reads it out loud (if they cannot read it, someone else can read it for them). On each card is a question about a prophet from the Bible. If you answer correctly, you get to take an extra turn. If not, the game moves on to the next player. (For younger students they do not have to answer a question, they get to take an extra turn.) The first player to square #80 is the winner. You must land there by exact count.

Pride (file folder game)





Pride File Folder Game: Land on a space that says PRIDE and identify whether the situation is about pride or being humble. Land on a Peacock picture you tell about a time you were full of pride. Land on a Humble Pie picture you must tell about a time you were humble.


Introduction: Write a PRIDE on the board. Say: Pride is a feeling of superiority. This haughty attitude is shown by someone who believes they are greater than, more important, more deserving, or more qualified than anyone else. This arrogance deceives us and tries to make us believe that we do not need God or others and we only need ourselves. Another face of pride is self-righteousness. Self righteousness is setting oneself above others and letting everyone know that they are better than others. It is the belief that says, “My way is right and no other way is right.”

Pride hardens the mind and refuses to hear the wisdom of anyone. It closes us off from others and from God; it rejects all other wisdom. This closed mindedness brings consequences. Rejecting God’s help and direction hinders our spiritual growth, making us less useful to Him. Pride blackens the soul and if it goes unchecked, it can lead to the hardening of the heart that condemns those who refuse to accept anything greater than them.

Reproduction or retransmission of any materials, in whole or in part, in any manner, is not permitted.





Potty Mouth: Using the Lord’s name in vain is like fingernails scrapping down a chalkboard. God hears us when we take his name in vain and it must break his heart when his name is used in such a manner. This game focuses on how we sometimes do not have respect for God and God’s name.



Place your marker on START. Players roll the die and move their marker that many spaces indicated on the die. If you land on the picture of a toilet plunger, things have backed up and you must back up 2 spaces. Land on the toilet paper, you lose a turn. If you land on the picture of the toilet brush the player to your left draws a card and reads it out loud. On each card is a question about the 2nd commandment: Thou shall not use the Lord’s name in vain (Catholic). If you answer the question correctly, you stay where you are. If you are not correct, you must move to the urinal for having a potty mouth. On your next turn you are asked another question and you cannot move off the urinal until you answer a question correctly. If you answer a question correctly, you may resume your position on the game board. If a player lands on a picture of a toilet bowel cleaner, they must change places with the player that is positioned last on the game board. The first player to FINISH wins.

Penitential Rite File Folder Game



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.


Penitential Rite file folder game is based on Alquerque which originated in the Middle East as the game Quirkat. Alquerque boards are carved into the stone slabs which form the roof of the great temple at Kurna, Egypt. The Arabic author Abu al-Faraj al-Isfahani mentioned Quirkat in his 24 volume work Kitab al-Aghani ("Book of Songs") c. 950 AD. Alquergue migrated to Europe when the Moors invaded Spain. It was named Alquerque (the Spanish form of El-Quirkat) in the Alfonso X Manuscript which was written between 1251 - 1282 at the command of Alfonso X, King of Leon and Castile. This game is the ancestor of modern day checkers (Draughts in the UK) when it evolved to being played on a chess board instead of the standard Alqerque board. The Madagascan game Fanorama may have evolved from Quirkat. (From boardgamesoftheworld.com).


Penitential Rite File Folder Game: For 2 Players or 2 Teams

The idea is to answer questions about the Penitential Rite so you can remove one or more of your opponent’s pieces. The goal of the game is to remove all the opponent’s pieces.





*This game is in accordance with the new Roman Missal that was implemented on November 27, 2011.


*You can also use a large circle hole puncher and make your own game pieces using card stock, craft foam, etc.

Nicene Creed File Folder Game



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.


The Nicene Creed File Folder Game: This game can be played individually or in teams.

The objective is to be the first player to get all four of his or her color pawns from his or her START location to his or her HOME space. Players must do this by answering questions about the Nicene Creed and rolling the die.



*This game is in accordance with the new Roman Missal that was implemented on November 27, 2011.



Set Up: Print game board on legal size paper (8.5” x 14”). This game can be played individually or in teams. Each player gets 4 pawns of the same color. Players put all 4 of their pawns off of the game board near their START space. Next, shuffle the deck and place it face down in a small basket near the game board. Put an empty basket nearby for the discards. Players choose who will go first and then game play goes counterclockwise. Players can roll the die and have the person with the highest number go first.

How To Play: Each player has his or her own "'START" location and "HOME" location. Players choose a color and put their corresponding pawns off of the board near their START square and take turns answering questions (the first person to their right reads the card) and rolling the die. Players must answer a question correctly to roll the die. Players must roll a 1 or a 6 to place their pawn on their corresponding START color. If a 1 is rolled, the player moves out and sits in their START space until it is his turn again. If a player rolls a 6, then she gets another turn to roll. Players move their pawns counterclockwise around the game board until they reach HOME. An exact number must be rolled on the die to enter home. If a player cannot roll the exact number and has no other moves, play passes to the next person. During game play, you can jump over another player but if you land on another player's space, you must BUMP that player and they must put their pawn off the game board near their START space. Players can not BUMP their own pawns off the game board. If the only way to complete a move would result in a player bumping himself, the pawns remains in place and the player loses his or her turn.

If someone happens to be on your START space if you roll 1 or 6, BUMP that player. If a player lands at the start of a slide (except those of its own color), they immediately move to the last square of the slide. All pawns anywhere on the slide (including pawns on the "end spots" of the slide) are BUMPED. If you land on a slide of your own color, do not slide, just stay put on that square. HOME are the "safety zones" and access is limited to only that player of the same color. Pawns inside the zone are safe from being BUMPED. The first player around the game board and brings all their pawns to HOME wins.


*Pawns can be coins, colored buttons, game pieces from other games, fish rocks for the bottom of aquariums, craft foam cut into shapes, etc. You can paint small objects such as rocks, small plastic tops or caps, etc. You can also buy pawns at game stores.

Making the Right Decisions

WWJD (What Would Jesus Do?)

Making the right decisions in life is hard to do, but if you let Jesus be your guide and think, “What Would Jesus Do?” it will make it a lot easier.


Put the Game Cards in a small basket near the game board. Place your markers at START. The player spins the spinner and follows the directions. If you spin to move ahead 3, 4, or 5, you move ahead that many spaces. During your turn be careful because if you place your marker on any space in the maze you must continue in that path even though it might be the wrong way to go. On your next turn however, you can change directions and get on the right path to FINISH. If the player spins WWJD you draw a Game Card and read it out loud. The Game Card might have a “What Would Jesus Do” (WWJD) situation and you must tell what the right thing for you to do if you were in that predicament. If you are correct, you move ahead 3. If you are not correct, you stay where you are. The Game Card might also have a colored square on it that the player must move his marker to and continue playing the game from (don’t lose your temper because that’s not what Jesus would do).

Moral Dilemmas Card Game:

Why do problems come into our life? People face problems every day. Some are harder than others. There are many choices that the person can have to solve his/her problem, but which one is the best? What would Jesus want us to do?


6 pages of cards


Place the Game Cards on a table. Toss a coin to find out who goes first. The player then draws a card and reads the moral dilemma, but does NOT say what he will do. The players then write down what they would do and why on their piece of paper (a sentence or two should suffice). Each player then shares what they wrote with the group. Discuss the answers that they have written. You could ask, “What do you think of Steve’s answer?” or “What is the worse thing someone could say or do in this situation?” or “Why do you think that answer is the right thing to do?” Etc. You can also have the players relate each issue to a commandment to help them decide what to do. When appropriate, reinforce a variety of ways to say or do things properly. Have them vote on which answer(s) is the best. The player(s) with the best answer receives a point (token). The player with the most points wins the game.

Mass Review File Folder Game



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.

Mass Review File Folder Game is based on the traditional Reversi board game of strategy for 2 players enjoyed all over the world. Game play typically takes place on an 8 x 8 grid game board. At the start, each player commands 2 pieces each, one player controlling white pieces and the other controlling black. As the game progresses, the 8 x 8 grid game board gradually fills up with additional playing pieces. It is not unusual for all 64 squares on the game board to be occupied by the end of the game.


Mass Review File Folder Game: For 2 Players or 2 Teams

* 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.





*This game is in accordance with the new Roman Missal that was implemented on November 27, 2011.
