An active game for large groups
How To Play War!
This is one of the easiest games to set up... but one of the most annoying games to clean up!
Divide your hall into halves or quarters or however many teams you want to have (may depend on the size of your hall / youth group). Get a decent amount of old newspaper and throw it around randomly, then say GO!
The aim of the game is to have the least amount of newspaper in your section by the end of the time limit (a couple of minutes). So your team has to grab the incoming newspaper and throw it, or take it, into another section. No other rules really!
Then, to make cleaning up easier, just make the next game "Whoever picks up the most newspaper wins!"
