Gloria File Folder Game

2018-02-15T07:19:10.709-05:00

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 It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit.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.Gloria File Folder Game is a simple board game with the straightforward objective of racing the player's 4 pawns from start to finish with dice throws. Similar to the brand-name board "Sorry!" marketed by Parker Brothers, Gloria (Ludo) shares similarities with the game Pachisi (or Parcheesi), which in turn originated in 6th century India (from fun-free-party-games.com)Gloria File Folder Game: Players race against other players in advancing his/her 4 playing pawns from start to finish by answering questions about Gloria and with successful die rolls. Each player has four specifically-designated finishing positions. The winner is the first player to successfully rest his 4 pawns on his designated finishing space. This game can be played individually or in teams. *This game is in accordance with the new Roman Missal that was implemented on November 27, 2011.What's Needed:• 2 - 4 Players (or players can be in teams)• Game Board• 8 - 16 playing pieces (pawns) in 2 - 4 colors (4 per color)• 1 - dieAbout the Game Board:The game board is laid-out as a "Cross" (having 4 arms). Each arm contains 4 colored "resting spaces" -- also called Home Spaces, which are the destination spaces for a player. These home spaces are bordered by the spaces along which the pawns are intended to travel. At each corner of the board are the 4 colored Starting Zones, where each player's pawns sit at the start of the game awaiting entry into the game board proper. A successful die throw of 6 is required for a pawn to jump from the starting zone onto the starting square. Lastly, the single colored space between the Starting Zone and the Home Spaces is the Starting Space where each pawn starts its journey toward the Home Spaces. Set Up: 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 resting in the Starting Zones located at the 4 corners of the game board. 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 clockwise. Players can roll the die and have the person with the highest number go first.Moving Pawns: The playing pieces are meant to travel in a clockwise direction along the cross-shaped. Each playing piece is required to travel 1 full rotation around the game board before it can move into the player's Home Spaces. A die throw is used to determine the number of spaces by which pawns may advance. At Start of Play: The game begins with each player's 4 pawns resting in the Starting Zones located at the 4 corners of the game board. Players take turns answering questions (the first person to their left reads the card). Players must answer a question correctly to roll the die. In order place your pawn on the Game Board a player needs to roll to exit the Starting Zone and enter the game board proper, a player needs to roll a 6. On a successful throw of 6, the player then places a pawn at the colored Starting Space. The 4 colored Starting Zones are located in the same place. The single Starting Space is designated as the tail end of the colored Arrow pointing towards the center.Moving One's Pawns:The player has choices: Provided the player rolls enough sixes, he can have all four pawns in play. Thereafter, he can choose to move any of his pawns on any valid die roll. Conditions for valid moves:* The destination space should be empty, or,* The destination space is occupied by another player's pawn. If so, this pawn is "Captured" and gets sent back to it[...]

I’m Sorry: As players move around the game board, they are given fictitious situations in which they have done something wrong. The player must then apologize to the person to his/her left for the situation on their card and they must be specific with their apology. They must say something like, “I’m sorry I took your video game,” instead of “I’m sorry.” The player that they apologized to must then say, “I forgive you.” Teaching children to apologize and to seek forgiveness from family and friends will encourage them to do so with God. The player then must also say what they should do to correct their mistake and/or what consequences should happen to them so they will learn to take responsibility for their actions. If the player apologizes correctly for the situation they receive a token. If a player lands on “Lose 1 Token” they must forfeit one token. The player at the end of the game who has the most tokens wins.

The Emotions Game

2018-02-06T10:26:25.590-05:00

A friend wanted an Emotions Game so I came up with one based on this game. I made a Christian version of this board game for CCD/Sunday School and I hope it is useful for younger students.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.*Feel free to modify it to suit your needs. Most of it is in MS Word format and can be changed easily.The Emotions Game: Introduction: You need to think before you say or do things because you may hurt someone's feelings. Remember what Jesus said, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:39 How can we show that we love God and our neighbor? We should do what God asks of us to show that we love him. How can we love our neighbor? God wants us to help others and to care about them and we should treat others how we would like to be treated.Review the emotions with your students (happy, angry, bored, ashamed, scared, anxious/nervous, sad, surprised, confused, and embarrassed). Discuss when and how we express each emotion. Example: How does someone look when they are sad? (Discuss. Have the students point to the sad face on the game board and make a sad face.) When can someone be said? (Discuss). What should we do when we see someone sad? (Discuss).We should be aware of how people feel and help them when needed.*This game can be used for many different things (introduction wise). Jesus loves me when I'm . . . sad, happy, etc.Jesus is with me when I feel . . .I should pray when I feel . . .Place your markers at START. Roll the die and move that many spaces. Follow the directions on the space you land on. If the space has LISTEN on it, the teacher will read you a phrase (with matching emotional inflection and facial expression) and you must identify what emotion is depicted. If you land on MAKE A FACE, you must make a face that shows one of the emotions (happy, angry, bored, ashamed, scared, anxious/nervous, sad, surprised, confused, or embarrassed) and the other players will guess what emotion it is. If you land on a THINK space, the teacher will read a situation and you will have to identify how you would feel if that happened to you.Give the children emotion stickers and/or stamp smiley faces on the back of their hands for trying or doing well.Continue game as time permits or until the children’s attention wanes. NOTE: There are also emotion cards with the pictures of the emotions on them that you can use to help discuss things or you can play Memory with them. If the children do not want to say the emotion during the game, they can hold up one of the cards to answer the questions.Emotion Cards- Pictures of the emotions on cards that you can use to help discuss things or you can play Memory or Go Fish.

Lentopoly Game

2018-01-30T09:39:09.409-05:00

I saw this game online by Michelle, Marnie, and Minette and thought it was so neat! It looked like so much fun and the kids would really enjoy it! Such a great learning tool for Lent too! The game is not posted online, but I got permission from them to expand upon it and post for others to use for free.Lentopoly is a game that is meant to incorporate the 3 aspects of Lent: prayer, fasting & almsgiving. By doing the charitable acts each day the child “earns” tokens (nails, pennies, beans, etc.). You can have a container full of tokens and each child has their own jar to put their ‘earned’ tokens into each day. On Easter the tokens are replaced with jelly beans or other candy/item of your choice. Parents can play too! If you decide to use money, you should decide what organization will get your money on Easter – your parish, pro-life group, rice bowl, etc.Everyone begins on the space marked “GO.” Each day of Lent, roll the dice & move the amount shown. If you complete the task indicated on the space, you receive a token. Whenever you pass or land on “GO” you receive 2 tokens. If you land on an “Extra Blessing” space & complete the task on the card you draw, you receive 2 tokens. If you land on an “Extra Sacrifice” space & complete the task on the card you draw, you receive 4 tokens. If you do not complete the task, you do not receive any tokens. Play the game each day from Ash Wednesday through Holy Saturday (you do not have to play on Sundays). On Easter, everyone wins!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.

Electing A Pope (file folder game)

2018-01-22T08:26:03.303-05:00

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.Electing A Pope is based on the race game Tabula (from boardgamesoftheworld.com) which was played by the Romans and ancient Greeks. It is believed to be the ancestor of backgammon and is derived from an older Roman game called Ludus Duodecim Scriptorum, the game of twelve lines. The Emperor Claudius (45 AD) was very fond of game and had a board attached to his chariot. The Emperor Zeno (circa 450 AD) wrote a book about the game and became famous for a disastrous throw which caused him to go from a strong position to a very weak one.Electing A Pope: For 2 Players or 2 TeamsThe idea is to answer questions about electing a pope so you can move your stones around the board. The goal is to move each stone along the 24-square path from the beginning to the end and remove the stone from the board. If the stone of one player lands on a square occupied by the stone of the opponent, the opponent’s stone is removed from the board and must start again. If a player has two or more pieces on a space the pieces on it cannot be captured. An exact throw is needed to remove a piece from the board. The winner is the player who removes all their stones from the board first.Need:15 playing pieces for each player (example: 15 blue and 15 red)3 diceQuestion CardsGame BoardSet Up: This game can be played with 2 players or 2 teams. 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: Electing A Pope is played by two players on a board of 24 spaces which are in Roman numerals. Each player starts the game with 15 playing pieces (they all are a different color than the other player). All pieces enter at square 1 and travel counterclockwise. The game is played with three dice. The starting player may be decided with the flip of a coin or by rolling the highest number with one die. The opponents make their moves by turns. To make a possible move you must answer a question (the other player draws a card and reads you the question) about electing a pope. If you are correct you may roll the dice and move one or some of your pieces (depending on what you roll). If you do not answer the question correctly, your turn is over. The players take turns to throw three six-sided dice. The throw can be shared between pieces. For example, a throw of 2, 3, 4 could be used to move one piece by 9, two pieces by 5 and 4 (or 6 and 3 or 7 and 2), or three pieces by 2, 3 and 4. If a player lands on a space occupied by an opponent’s piece the opponent’s piece is removed from the board and must start again. If a player has two or more pieces on a space the pieces on it cannot be captured. An exact throw is needed to remove a piece from the board. A player must use the whole of his throw if possible. Any part of a throw that is unplayable is lost. The winner is the player who is first to get all his pieces off the board.Directions- Print out Directions. Keep inside file folder for safe keeping. Game Board- Print game board on legal size paper (8.5” x 14”). Print out Game Board, trim, and glue on the inside of the file folder. Title- Cut out ELECTING A POPE title and glue in the center of the game bo[...]
