Pumpkin Patch Bump Bible Review Game

Our Sunday school lesson for tomorrow is a review on the previous six lessons.  I decided to make a "Bump" game to help the kids review in a fun way.  This game may look simple, and it is.  However, my 5th and 6th graders really enjoy it.  Here is the free game board and the directions.

How to Play Bump

Materials Needed

*1 Bump game board for every two players
*2 dice for each pair of players
Color counters - a handful for each pair 
(Make sure they have a different color on each side.  The above link is my affiliate link for Amazon.)
*A set of cards with questions and answers for each pair.  I have the question and answer both on the same side.  You will see why below.

Directions

1. This can be used to review any subject or lesson.

2.  Players decide who will be each color and who will go first.

3.  Shuffle the question cards and place face down on the table.

4.  Player one picks a card and asks player two the question.  (This is why I have the answer on the same side.  The player who is asking the question can see if the other player answers correctly.)

5.  If player two answers correctly, they roll the dice, add the two numbers, and cover the number with the answer.  If they miss the question, they don't get to roll.

6.  Player two now repeats the same process with player one answering the question.

7.  If a player rolls and gets a number that is already covered by their opponent, they get to "bump" his marker off, and they place their marker on the number.

8.  If a player rolls and gets a number that he himself has already covered, he places a second marker there.  This "secures" that spot and he cannot be bumped off.

9.  When all the numbers are covered, the player with the most spots covered is the winner.

*******************

I'm actually going to make this into a whole class game for tomorrow.  Each pair of kids will still have the gameboard, dice, and markers.  The only difference is that I'm going to ask the questions (because I don't have any cards made out!).  I will allow anyone to answer out loud.  Then each pair can roll and cover their numbers.  For example, question one will allow player one of each pair to roll.  Question two will allow player two to roll, and so on.

This also takes kids off the spot if they don't know an answer.  The whole class will be hearing the correct answer.
