TRAFFIC JAM: Youth Group Games

Quick Overview:

Want to get everyone moving? Want to have controlled chaos? Want a great game for your youth group? Well check this game out from @brave.youth!!

Supplies You’ll Need:

1. Chairs. You will need enough chairs for everyone. That’s all!!


Clear out your room so it is one big open space.

Place enough chairs for everyone (minus 2) on the side walls. Half on one wall and the other half on the other wall.


Game Play:

Split your group in half making two teams. Each team will go on opposite sides of the room. When you yell “Traffic Jam” teams must run across to the other side of the room and sit in a chair. Because there is a missing chair on each side of the room, one person will get out each round. Each round take away another chair from each side of the room to slowly knock people out.
