How To Play Talkin Bout Your Generation

Played this game in a fairly large youth group but could work for smaller groups too! If you are familiar with the tv game show Talkin bout Your Generation there is a challenge at the end where they say 'Which Generation Is Best at...?'

The challenge could be anything really but an example I chose to see which generation knew cartoons the best. I assembled pictures of various cartoon characters and they had to identify and organize characters by era.

The best thing about the game is we actually had people from Gen X (some leaders), Gen Y (leaders and older youth) and Gen Z (younger youth) and it was interesting to note which characters were more familiar to other teams.

The game went really well and there was lots of fun!

Materials Needed

Depends on the challenge. May require some preparation.
