Bible Trivia/Sword Drill

Game Type: group | Location: indoor | Food: No | Messy: No | Kidz Club: No | Urban Impact Youth: Yes



Girls vs. Guys
Once the question or reference is read, the first person to their feet from either team has the floor. That team will have 1 chance to answer the question or read the verse (sword drill). If they come up with the correct answer they earn 1,000 points. If they get the answer wrong the opposing team gets 1 try and if correct, will earn 1, 500 points.

Each person can only answer one question (so it’s not the same person answering all the questions).

Shouting out an answer during the opposing teams try will deduct 1,000 points.

You may use your Bible to look up the answers. You have 30 seconds to answer.
