Indoor Team Building Games

There is nothing more important than a group of people having the ability to work together as a team, especially in the workforce. It is, however, not always easy for all employees to work collaboratively.

Team building games really help to promote and foster relationships in which the individuals trust one another and work together in a positive and productive manner. There are fun team building games for kids and team building games for adults. The common goal of both is to have fun and promote teamwork. Team building activities not only help ease tension and promote a good relationship between employees or children, but they can also help develop problem-solving skills, foster creative thinking, and build better communication between team members.

There are many options for great indoor team building games and exercises. Below, I’ve compiled 17 of the best! You can see the step-by-step instructions for these fun games and group activities below. We’re sure you’ll have a good time playing these team building games.

1.) 3 Truths and a Lie

In this fun, getting-to-know-you team building activity, each person gets a chance to state three truths about themselves and one lie, to the rest of the group. The truths may be as fun and creative as you would like, or as simple as you may choose. The lie must not be so far-fetched that it is completely unbelievable (i.e., “I swam the English Channel with my arms tied behind my back and a shark chasing me.”). Everyone should discuss what they believe are the truths and which is the lie. After they come to a united decision, the speaker will reveal if they are correct or not.

This is a great team building game to help everyone become acquainted with one another. It also helps the quieter people of the group who may more easily remain silent, if allowed, to break out and get to be known by others. In addition, it allows the participants to learn a bit about themselves as well as others based on the lies they believed to be true.

2.) Scavenger Hunt

An oldie but a goodie: you likely remember this game from your childhood. Small groups should be made to create teams whom work together with the common goal of finding the objects or answers needed from their scavenger hunt list. The answers or items being sought out should all be work or event-related. A time limit should be given for the groups to find as many objects and answers as they possibly can. Some will be quite easy, but others will really require them to work together as they will be a bit more difficult.

This promotes united teamwork. When the game is done everyone will have been reminded of different work/event procedures and policies as they will have been incorporated in their lists for answers or items to find. This is ideal when large indoor spaces are available.

3.) Hello My Name Is

Write adjectives describing someone’s mood or personality (i.e., happy, grouchy, negative, prankster) on name tag stickers. Be sure there are enough so that each person can have one. Then randomly hand them out or let each person draw one from a hat. Each person must then put the sticker with their assigned adjective on to their shirt and wear it, behaving as their assigned adjective during all interactions for a certain amount of time.

This is a great activity that shows each person that when we define them by a feeling - “Boy, you’re really grumpy today!” – it can actually lead us to take on that persona, whether we were feeling that way or not. This, of course, can be a good thing or a bad thing – acting happy can, in fact, make you feel happy!  This shows how behavior and actions can actually define our feelings, not the other way around.

4.) Big Foot

This is a fun, albeit tricky game, in which everyone must stand up in a single file line. All the players are then blindfolded so that they cannot see. They are then instructed to put themselves in line in order of smallest foot to biggest foot. Caveat: they cannot ask or state anyone’s shoe size.

This is a great team building game that demands teamwork to communicate efficiently in order get into line properly without the use of sight or verbalizing the most basic and obvious of information: shoe size.

5.) See What I Mean?

In this challenging team building activity one person draws a picture using only basic shapes and a volunteer than describes the picture drawn to everyone else. Without seeing the picture, each person much tries to reproduce the picture based solely on what the volunteer is relaying to them with the ultimate goal being that they are able to create the same picture.

In this game it is unlikely that anyone in the group will reproduce a carbon copy – some pictures will be more similar than others. This activity emphasizes how very important verbal communication is, and also how it can be vastly interpreted by different people. To really drive the point home you could do a few rounds of this game, which would also exhibit how some people interpret directions and communication differently from others and how certain methods are more easily understood than others.

6.) Zombie Escape

In this thrilling game, everyone will be “locked” in a room with a “zombie.” One person will be the zombie, complete with outstretched arms and zombie noises, and they will be tied to a rope in the corner. Every five minutes the zombie will be given an extra foot of leeway on the rope, eventually being close enough to “eat” the other players. Before the zombie gets that far, however, the group will have a series of puzzles, riddles, or clues they must complete in order to find the key and escape the room intact.

This activity fosters collaborative teamwork and creative problem-solving skills, as everyone must work together to figure out the clues in a high-stress situation in order to get out. This also helps to show which individuals have a more difficult time in stressful situations, which people flourish in them, and helps to bring out real team leaders.

7.) What’s My Name?

Write the name of famous present or past figures, or of people types such as nurse, geek, blind, homeless on to a name tag place one on to the back of each person in the room so that they cannot see the name tag, but everyone else in the room can.

The group then may socialize with one another for a set amount of time, asking questions in order to try and figure out who they are. Others will treat them in stereotypical ways based on who their label says they are. Each person can use the answers to their questions, as well as their treatment, to ascertain who they are. Once they have correctly identified their label, they may leave the game until everyone has finished.

This is a really great ice-breaker game, but also allows each person to confront stereotypes in the questions used and the answers are given, as well as by how they treated others and other treated them based solely on their label. It permits each person to get a better idea of how we erroneously perceive people, as well as how it feels to be so narrowly characterized by a simple label.

8.) Get to Know Me!

In this activity request everyone to pair off into twos with people they were not sitting near and/or do not know well. The pairs will then ask one another three questions: 1.) Name something that you are very proud of in your work and/or personal life. 2.) Tell something about yourself that very few people know about. 3.) Interviewers choice: any question can be asked. Afterward, each person will share with the large group what they learned about their partner.

This is a fun and effective way to get to better know your colleagues, especially those with whom you may not interact with often.

9.) Kid’s Stuff

For this creative challenge, you will all work together to create a board game based on the work your business or event conducts. Using basic and limited supplies, such as poster board and markers, everyone will work together using their imaginations to create a fun and interactive game. The game may include questions focused on the business that must be answered at certain game spots, ways to earn/lose points or move forward/ backward. Perhaps a dice will move you forward? The sky is the limit.

This exercise will force each person to work collaboratively and give their input in order to create a board game that is fun for everyone.

10.) Spider Web

In Spider Web have the group form a large circle. It may be standing or sitting; if it is a very large group, you may prefer to sit. One person will hold a large ball of twine and then tell the group an embarrassing story about themselves. Afterward, they will then hold onto the end of the twine and throw it to someone else in the circle, extending the twine from themselves to the next person. That person will then also tell an embarrassing story about his or herself and throw the twine to another person while keeping a hold of it as well. This will continue until the twine has been passed to each person and each person has had the opportunity to humor the group with an embarrassing story of his or her own. The end result will produce a “spider web” out of the twine, connecting everyone to each other.

This team building game shows how each person, no matter how different, is connected in one or way or another to each other person. It also allows each person to see how everyone may have vastly different experiences, but they all experience the same emotions and feelings. Though you may be very different people, you are also more alike and connected than you realize.

11.) Group Timeline

Create a large timeline on a whiteboard, bulletin board, or whatever other means you may prefer. Mark the very beginning of the timeline back to either when the oldest participant in the group was born, or when the business or event was first founded; whichever occurred first. Then mark off any major milestones for the business or event, such as “Change of Name” or “Celebrated 50 years,” etc.

Then allow each person in the group to mark four important moments for them on the timeline; whether it be personal or business/event-related; it is completely up to them.

When the timeline is completed it will show a visual representation of your whole team and their generational experiences. This allows for dialogue on generational and cultural differences and how they affect work and communication, as well as general differences and similarities.

12.) Plane Crash

In this team building activity you will imagine that your group was in a plane crash and are now stranded on a deserted island. This can be done as one large group, or you can break off into smaller groups. The group must then choose 12 items that can be found in the building that they believe to be the most useful for their survival on their deserted island, and rank them in order of most importance to least.

This focuses on teamwork and collaboration, as well as creative problem solving and thinking outside of the box, as they may very likely have to make do with items they would not pick if not so limited.

13.) Watch Where You Step

Make a polygonal shape on the floor using masking tape that is at least 12 feet by 6 feet. Make the outline of the shape a tad complicated, selecting a shape that is stretched out as people will be making their way from one end to the other. Be sure there are starting and stopping points marked. Put a handful of squeaky dog toys inside of the taped shape, and at least double the number of sheets of paper, each with a huge X on them, inside of the shape. The papers are mines.

In groups of two, each person will be blindfolded and must make it from start to finish through the minefield. The only direction is from the verbal instructions coming from those whom are outside of the shape and not blindfolded. The blindfolded participants may not step outside of the shape enclosure, nor may the step on a mine. If they do, they are frozen until someone else steps on a squeaky toy in order to unfreeze them. This occurs until the entire group has had a turn to make it successfully through the minefield.

This team building exercise works on communication and teamwork, as well as clear diction and the ability to be vigilant of numerous actions at once.

14.) Use What You Have

In this fun game, split your group into two equal groups. Or if needed, several equal groups. Give them clear instructions for a goal in which they must create something: the something is completely up to you. It may be that they must create a way to move a marble from point A to point B without the use of electricity or rubber bands; it can really be anything. Each group has the same goal and the same restrictions.

The teams are then given a specific amount of time to work and complete the mission with a particular set of supplies. They are not allowed to use any other materials, but how they use the supplies available to them is entirely up to them. The big reveal at the end is an exciting event and allows for friendly competition.

This activity requires teamwork in creative problem solving with limited options. It allows for the groups to see how each person thinks and works abstractly and in a time-crunch.

15.) Find the Common Thread

Divide everyone into groups of three or more. They will talk and get to know one another long enough to find a common thread amongst them, such as they all love zombie movies or they’re huge football fans. They will then write a list of common stereotypes attributed to people who tend to enjoy those sorts of things.

The groups will then come together and proclaim who they as a group are. For the rest of the day each group will behave as their stereotype: perhaps the zombie-lovers will be overheard making zombie apocalyptic plans or acting like zombies. Football aficionados may randomly cheer for their team. At the end of the day discuss stereotypes and how they often limit how we view people and their abilities. Also, discuss how each group came about discovering their common thread.

The purpose of this teambuilding game is to help everyone see how silly and limiting stereotypes are, and how if people truly behaved the way we often write them off to act, things would be vastly different. It also shows how a group of seemingly very different people can have great commonalities that bring them together.

16.) Someone You Admire

This team building game is as straightforward as the name. Each person will take a turn stating someone whom they admire; it may be a current person or someone from history. You could also spice it up a bit and make it be someone within the group. Each person must also tell why they admire that person; what traits, attributes, and/or accomplishments make that person worthy of admiration.

This exercise really helps everyone get to know one another better and have a stronger sense of each other’s values and what attributes they find to be important. It also can help bring people closer together as they realize they respect and admire the same people.

17.) Classify This

Collect at least 20 different items and set them on a table. The broader the category, the better (i.e., jewelry, office supplies, etc.). You want for these items, at first glimpse, to have no obvious connection to each other.

Then break everyone into equal teams, armed with a pen and paper. They must then classify the objects into four groups. They may do this, however, they choose, working together, not allowing other groups to hear. Once all the groups are finished they will each get a turn explaining how they opted to group the items. Each group may have vastly different conclusions, grouping by size, material, color, etc.

This activity encourages teamwork and creative thinking. It forces them to think outside the box and rethink everyday objects and problems and find connections to things that they would typically view as entirely unrelated.

27 Bridal Shower Games for Large Groups

Hosting a bridal shower for a lucky bride-to-be is a tremendous responsibility. Every bride-to-be dreams of her shower so you will want every detail to be as perfect as possible (while also ensuring that everyone has plenty of fun.) The maid of honor is typically responsible for preparing for the party and making it memorable for the bride. With that being said, other members of the bridal party and the bride and groom's family usually step in to assist.

Bridal shower games are always a huge hit because they allow everyone to get involved and have a good laugh. There are so many bridal shower games for large groups. If this is your first time hosting a bridal shower, particularly if there are a lot of guests, you may not know what games to pick.

Luckily, the list below will give you plenty of ideas for entertaining bridal shower games for large groups. There are a lot of fun bridal shower games to choose from. There are unique bridal shower games and activities, get-to-know-the-bride games, and games to play during gift wrapping. It’s always best to look for bridal shower game ideas ahead of time. This way you will be properly prepared and have time to gather all of the bride's answers.

List of Bridal Shower Games for Large Groups

1. Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Design

Our first choice for wedding shower games: the goal of this game is to divide people up into groups of between 2 and 4 people. Hand each group a roll of toilet paper and have them designate someone in their group to be a model. The other members of the group will need to construct a wedding dress out of toilet paper that their model can wear. Whichever group has the best dress design wins the game.

Curious how many rolls of toilet paper for bridal shower game are necessary? 4-6 rolls are enough for a 20 minutes session of playing this game.

2. Toilet Paper Camping Tell-All Game

Make sure you have plenty of rolls of toilet paper for this game. To play, you need to pass around a roll of toilet paper and ask each person to pull off as much toilet paper as they would need for a weekend long camping trip.

Once everyone has their selected amount of toilet paper, let them know that for each sheet they have, they will have to state one fact about themselves out loud. The more toilet paper a person has, the more they will have to tell. This is a great icebreaker game and allows large groups of individuals to get to know one another.

3. Don’t Say the Word Game

When you attend a bridal shower, the topic of conversation typically involves the bride, groom, and the wedding. But what if no one was allowed to say bride, groom, and wedding? When everyone arrives, inform them that they will be playing a game that will last the duration of the bridal shower. Let them know that if they say the specified words at any point, they lose the game. The person or people who win get to take home a small prize.

4. Guess How Many

For this game, you will need to take a clear plastic or glass jar and fill it with something of your choice. You can fill it with buttons, candy, and the like. Candy is an excellent choice because it can be given away as a prize to the winner of this game. Have the guests guess how many items they think are in the jar. Whoever guesses the number of comes closest to the number wins the jar.

5. Bridal Bingo

Bingo is a fun game for everyone of any age, and bridal shower bingo is a great pick regarding bridal shower games for large groups. Rather than handing out cards with numbered squares, place words in each box such as words related to honeymoon hotspots, bridal gifts, and other wedding-related words.

6. Name the Cake

Hand out a sheet of paper that allows guests to guess a type of cake based on clues given on their piece of paper. For instance, the question may ask what kind of cake would a rabbit eat in which the corresponding answer would be a carrot cake. Whoever has the most answers correct should win a small token prize.

7. Movie Quotes

Create sheets of paper with memorable movie quotes on one side and the corresponding movie titles on the other, but mix up the order of the movie titles. Ask guests to draw lines so they can match the movie quote to the name of the movie. To make things even more interesting, you could choose wedding-related movies, too, such as My Big Fat Greek Wedding and My Best Friend’s Wedding.

8. Guess Who

This is a fun game in which you gather information about the engaged couple. Print the facts out on a sheet of paper and have your guests guess which fact belongs to which partner. If you're celebrating a heteroromantic marriage, for some added fun place a picture of a wedding dress on one side of the fact and a picture of a tux on the other to represent either the bride or the groom. Guests can circle the corresponding picture to determine who the fact belongs to.

9. Fairy Tale Matchup

Weddings are often a dream come true, or a fairy tale of sorts, for the intended, which is why a fairy tale matchup game makes perfect sense. This game consists of listing the names of Disney princesses or heroines on one side and Disney Princes or heroes on the other in a mixed up order. Ask your guests to match the princess to her corresponding prince. For instance, matching Ariel and Prince Eric, Cinderella and Prince Charming, and Snow White and The Prince.

10. Bridal Shower Scattergories

Create a numbered list of 12 wedding related items on a sheet of paper. Leave a blank line next to each item so that guests may fill in their answers. You could list out items such as:

  • A term of endearment
  • Gift found on a wedding registry
  • Honeymoon hotspot

Draw letters on to small pieces of paper and fold them over. Place the letters in a hat and mix them up. Pull out a letter at random. The letter that you pull is the first letter of the answer your guests have to use. For instance, if you pick the letter S, your guests could put sweetie for a term of endearment. If any guests have the same answer, they do not get any points. If a guest has two words that start with the same letter, they get double the points and so on. For instance, if the letter you pick is P and a guest says pretty princess as a term of endearment, that would count as two points.

11. Put a Ring It

This game can create tons of laughter among bridal shower guests. Hand each guest a chopstick and ask them to place it between their teeth and lips. Place a bowl of candy fruit rings, such as peach rings, in front of each guest. Tell the guests that they must pick up as many of the candy rings as possible using the chopstick. Instruct the guests not to use their hands or they will automatically lose the game. Whoever has the most rings on their chopstick wins the game.

  • Wooden chopstick
  • Disposal chopstick
  • 40 pairs, individual packed

12. Garter Toss

Purchase cheap garters and bottles of sparkling cider and entertain bridal shower guests with a game of garter toss. The goal is to toss the garter so that it lands on the bottle of sparkling cider. Whoever lands the most points wins the game. You may want to set a certain point limit before the game starts. Try sticking with 5-10 points since that seems to be a relatively good range of numbers for a large group of guests.

13. Mad Lib Wedding Vows

Have the guests help the bride write up some hilarious wedding vows using a version of the original Mad Lib game. Put plenty of blanks throughout the vows and have guests insert adjectives, verbs, nouns, and emotions. If you have a large group of people, it will be hilarious to see what funny vows people think up. For some added fun and laughter, have each guest read their Mad Lib wedding vows out loud.

14. Receiving Line

When it comes to choosing bridal shower games for large groups of people, nothing beats this game. For this game, you will have to divide your guests into teams. On one side of the room, you will need to place bowls filled with rice. On the other side of the room, have small, empty mason jars. Have each team line up between their bowl and their jar. The point of the game is for guests to use their hands only. The first member of the team will scoop out a handful of rice from the bowl and place it to the next team member’s hand. The team members will continue passing the rice from one hand to the next until they have placed their rice in the jar. The team with the most rice in their jar at the end wins the game.

15. Wedding Traditions

Weddings have certainly changed over the centuries, particularly with many brides opting for a modern wedding rather than a traditional one. However, there are certain wedding traditions that find their way into even the most unique wedding situations. For instance, the bride carrying a bouquet of flowers or a flower girl tossing down petals. On a sheet of paper, list out various wedding traditions throughout the centuries and see if your guests can match the tradition with the reason why the tradition exists. This game makes it fun for guests to learn about the history of different wedding traditions.

16. ABC Wedding

Write out the letters A through Z in list-style and leave a blank line next to each letter. Have your guests' name wedding related items next to each blank. For instance, next to the letter B, a person could list bridal gown. Whoever has the most items written down by the end of the game wins. If any guests have matching answers, it will cancel out that response.

17. Mint to Be

Fill a bowl with mints and hand each guest a straw. For this game, no hands are allowed. Players will have to place the straw between their teeth and lips and use suction to grab hold of a mint. The player will have to keep the mint on the end of the straw and place it in an empty jar. The person with the most mints in their jar by the time the game is up wins. To make this game a little more fun and challenging, use a timer.

18. Pin the Mustache on the Groom

Print out a jumbo size photo of the groom and hand each guest a mustache containing double-sided tape on one side. After blindfolding the guest, have them place the mustache on the picture. Whoever places the mustache as close to the proper place as possible wins the game. Another variation of this game is pin the veil on the bride in which you print a picture of the bride rather than the room and have guests tape a paper veil to the picture while blindfolded. Again, whoever places the veil as close to the correct position as possible wins.

19. Would They Rather

List things that the engaged would and would not want to do together and ask guests which they believe best suits the couple. For example, you can ask, “Would they rather go cruising or camping?” The person with the most correct guesses wins the game.

20. Tie the Knot

Make sure you have plenty of cherry stems available for this game. The way to win this game is to see who can tie the most cherry stem knots using only their teeth, tongue, and lips (no hands) in a minute. Although you can play this game without a timer, the aspect of racing the clock makes this game all the more hilarious.

21. The Price is Right Bridal Edition

Purchase a few small items that you know you would like to give to the bride at the end of the game as a gift. Line the gift items up on a table and have your guests play this fun version of The Price is Right. Guests will have to guess the correct price for each item. Whenever one guest guesses the price correctly or as close as possible, hand them the gift item to give to the bride. Not only will your guests have fun playing a fun twist on this classic TV show game, but the bride will also get some very cool and much-needed gifts out of it.

22. Guess Who Bridal Guest Version

If you have ever played the game Guess Who, you know that the point was to determine who was your character based on a set number of clues such as male or female, glasses or no glasses, and short hair or long hair. You can do this exact same thing with your bridal shower guests. In terms of bridal shower guests for large groups, this one works best when you have a lot of guests in attendance. The more guests there are the more challenging it will be to figure out which guest is being described. Whoever guesses the guest correctly wins the game.

23. Wedding Crashers

Hand each player a ping-pong ball and have them see if they can bounce the ball across a table in order to knock down a stack of plastic cups. Whoever knocks down the most plastic cups wins the game.

24. Name That Groom

Hold up a picture of a famous celebrity bride, such as the Duchess of Cambridge and have the guests guess who her famous celebrity partner was. If a celebrity has been married more than once, let guests know which partner you would like them to name, such as the first or most recent.

25. Ball and Chain

Secure one end of a rope around a lightweight plastic ball. Secure the other end of the rope around the guest’s ankle. Line up water balls on the ground and have your guest swing the rope and ball around Skip-It style to see who can knock the most bottles down in a minute. Whoever manages to knock over the most bottles wins the game. For some added phone, spray paint the plastic ball black to make it look more like a ball and chain.

26. Kiss the Bride

Pictionary can be a fun and hilarious game, especially when you are trying to think up creative bridal shower games for large groups of people. However, the idea behind kiss the bride puts an entertaining twist on the classic game. Make sure you have a large drawing pad available. Place the drawing pad on an easel and hand the guest that is nominated to draw a tube of lipstick. The guest drawing the picture must do so using the tube of lipstick. However, this is a no hands allowed game, meaning the tube of lipstick must be placed between the teeth and lips.

27. What Was She Wearing

The goal of this game is to have the bride-to-be announce that she will be right back as she steps out of the room. The guests all think she will be right back but in reality, you are going to have her wait outside while you ask each guest to remember what she was wearing. Whoever guesses the bride’s outfit the closest (down to the most minute details if possible) wins the game.

With the fun and hilarious games listed above, you can make any bridal shower an absolute blast. In truth, bridal shower game ideas are endless. All you need is the creative mind to think up whatever hilarious game concoctions are available. It’ll surely give the couple wonderful memories before their wedding.

How to Play Disc Golf and Disc Golf Rules

Disc golf is a great game. It is something that you can play recreationally with friends or that, believe it or not, you can play seriously and competitively. No matter what your goals with the game may be, you will find that learning how to play disc golf is actually quite simple, especially if you know and understand the basic rules.

The Basic Rules of Disc Golf

The first thing to know, disc golf is a game of respect and courtesy. And you are asked to treat your fellow players, opponents or not, in a friendly manner.

For example, you cannot distract another player when he is throwing. Nor can you throw your disc without ensuring it will not cause a problem or distraction for another player.

Aside from general courtesies, each golf hole begins with a tee-off and then throwing until the players have all reached the basket, just as in golf. Scoring is also the same as golf. Every time you throw your disc that counts as a “stroke.” Penalties that you incur as you play also count as a stroke. At the end of the game, the player who took the fewest strokes or throws wins. It’s as simple as that, but so much more fun than you could ever imagine!

Make Your Final Shot Your Easiest Shot

As you learn how to play disc golf, you will quickly find that the desire to win is real.

Even though the sport isn’t always super competitive, winning is the kind of thing that players seem to get into. So, even if you are not playing for serious reasons, you’ll likely still find yourself wanting to win...big time.

Tips to Remember:

If that’s you, one key tip to follow is to remember not to get too hung up on distance. All too often, players, especially beginning players, want to throw their discs as far as they can from the first throw onward.

And, while throwing far is helpful, it’s not the important part of winning the game.

You’d be much better off by seeing the big picture and trying to make as few progressive throws as you can to get your disc into the net. You also want to make it so that your approach shot is easy and so that your final shot is your easiest one yet.

This is the point where you should be wrapping things up and getting that disc into the net. So don’t make it hard when you don’t have to.

Take the Proper Stance and Use Good Technique

Another thing that can help you to get better at disc golf is to remember that stance and technique matter. As such, always try to keep these things in mind when you play.

Always begin with a stationary throw. Once you have mastered that, you can do a run-up or at least work your way up to one

When throwing, reach back with a full extension of both the arm and the elbow. Then, when you’re ready, bring the arm forward by pushing the elbow and maintaining strength and power until you are ready to release the disc.

Remember while you throw to keep the rest of your body as still and firm as possible. This will help you to control your shot and will give you a better chance at landing your disc in the net.

Follow the Rules of Tee Off Order

While disc golf may be largely about fun, it’s also about following the rules. This is especially true when it comes to the rules of tee off order.

Always remember that the first tee is decided upon by flipping discs. If you’re not playing as serious of a game, though, you can simply decide who goes first.

If you are flipping discs, use the printed side of the disc as “heads.”

This flipping is only done on the first tee off. For all other holes, allow the player with the lowest score on the previous hole to go first.

Use Quality Equipment

Table Tennis or Ping Pong Rules: How to Play Ping Pong

Ping pong is a lot of fun. Unfortunately, it is also not something that a lot of people play, at least not really. Most people have “messed around” with a ping pong table a time or two, but in terms of playing the game by its actual rules, that’s not something you see a lot. It’s unfortunate too since ping pong is a really fun and enjoyable sport, and ping pong rules are actually pretty simple.

If you want to play the game, just follow these simple tips.

Learn the Importance of

Proper Grip

When people inquire about learning ping pong rules, they often want to play the game.

However, before you should play, there are some basic things you need. One of the important things is the grip. Without the right grip, your game is going to be flawed.

While there are all kinds of grips that you can practice the easiest to master is the pen hold grip.

You hold your bat between the thumb and the index finger, similar to the way you probably hold a pencil. While this grip might feel a little funny at first, it’s an excellent way to master the art of spin.

This grip is an option that will help build hand strength and gain better control over the ball for beginners.

Practice with Someone Who Knows Ping Pong Rules

Once you learn basic skills like how to grip the paddle, a lot of practice is necessary to truly get good at table tennis.

One of the best ways to practice is with someone who really knows the sport. Have this person “feed” you the ball in the right way so that you’ll get familiar with hitting it. Also, learn different positions and controlling the ball.

The more you do this and the more angles your helper as you try, the better you’ll get. Aim to practice thirty minutes or more each day if you are dedicated to mastering the game.

Understand How Scoring of the Game Works

In addition to getting the basics down and practicing regularly, you also have to really understand how scoring works.

The game starts a match consists of five games, and the winner is the person who wins in three games. Of course, games can sometimes run the winner taking four out of seven games or five out of nine games.

A game won when the first player reaches 11 points and has at least two points over the other player. Points scored every time a ball is into play. And remember that the sides of the table do not count as part of the legal playing area.

Once you understand and can follow scoring, you will find it much easier to play the game correctly.

Try Out Different Serves as

You Play

Different kinds of serves can be used in table tennis. No rule says one type of serve is “better” than the other, so keep that in mind as you play.

Also, try your best to vary your serves to throw your opponent off. And keep him guessing as to which move you are going to use next.

Some good serves to try include medium long serves, short serves, and pure spin serves, to name a few. You will find that if you can master and then mix up your serves, your opponent will have to keep guessing. About how best to match your ball, and you’ll probably have a much better chance at winning.

Switch Up Servers According to the Rules

One final thing to keep in mind as you play is when to switch up your servers.

The basic rule to remember is that each player gets to serve two points consecutively before switching. Keep in mind, though, that if the players ever get tied at ten points, the game will switch to each player serving one point. Then turn again.

Also, players should switch table sides after every game except during the final match. When players switch for each turn after one player has five points.

Following these ping pong rules, as well as the other tips presented here, will help keep your game “legal.” And will ensure that everyone gets a fair shot at winning this great game.

Farther, higher, and straighter. Those words are nirvana to golfers.

Unfortunately, golf is not as easy as it looks like on TV, especially if you are using mediocre golfing gear. While every golfer wants to hit some lusty shots, it’s sometimes difficult because they are using the wrong clubs.

It is, therefore, important to find the right set of clubs that will give you the much-needed precision and distance. So without farther ado, here are the best golf clubs you are likely to come across:

  • 360 Face Cup + VFT for more Ball Speed
  • MIM'd Internal Standing Wave for Optimal Flight and Control
  • Urethane Microspheres for Great Feel

Callaway has put all its experience, expertise, and advanced technology to create the latest set of the Apex Pro.

The head is made from a mixture of carbon and steel to create a smooth and supple feel no matter the shot you are playing. Long clubs have heavier slugs for explosive distances while short irons have no extra weight added to them to give you a light, comfortable feel when playing short chip shots.

These irons are generally made for low and mid handicappers. Mid handicapper can easily improve and take their gameplay to the next level while low handicappers (who miss the ball from time to time) will finally get the precision they’re looking for from these clubs.

PROS

  • excellent grips

CONS

Additionally, the Titleist 718 AP2 has a cracking feel to it that will definitely boost your gameplay. The sound made when you make a shot is also satisfying. This model is basically a high-forgiving club with excellent accuracy.

How to Choose the Best Golf Clubs

Whether you're investing in your very first professional golf set, or upgrading from your current one, then it's important to know what exactly to look for in the best golf clubs.

Budget

This is one of the most important aspects to purchasing new golf clubs. If you're purchasing from the top brands, then it can turn out to be quite an expensive investment.

Be realistic, especially if you're new to golf and this is your first set. Set a budget that works for you. You can always upgrade later on, but you don't want to waste money on something that you may not end up using very often.

Weight

Don't forget that you'll have to carry your golf clubs around with you, unless you'll be using a caddy or golf cart. 

If you will be carrying them around, make sure you don't choose clubs or a bag that are too heavy for you. You don't want to be so exhausted that you can't even play the game.

Size

Golf clubs aren't made to fit everyone perfectly. Make sure you get measured properly, and choose the correct length.

Set

It's important to determine how many clubs you need and what kind you should be buying. Both of these depend on your playing level and handicap.

Be sure to determine where you'll be playing and what the conditions are like before choosing a set.

Types of Golf Clubs

The aspect of a golf club that truly sets them apart from each other is the head. They will come in various sizes, shapes, and weights. Let's take a look at the different types at golf clubs.

Iron

Iron clubs allow you to make long and short-range shots. You can also use these from the tee to right before you make the green. This makes irons versatile.

Irons also give you a wide range of strengths and striking speeds.

Wood

Woods are also known as drivers. These will be the largest heads in your set of golf clubs.

If you need power and distance when teeing off, then woods are your best bet. They are very aerodynamic.

Wedge

There are actually two types of wedges, sand or pitching. A sand wedge will give you what you need to get out of the bunkers. A pitching wedge will help you get onto the green.

Hybrid

A wedge is a more recent development, but they're a very popular choice. They are especially popular with beginners. 

Hybrids combine the features of irons and woods, so you'll be able to carry around fewer clubs.

Putter

The putter is used on the green, and is used to strike the ball into the hole. Depending on your skill level, this will either be a blade putter or a mallet putter.

Final Thoughts: Which Golf Club is Right for You?

With these golf clubs, you can be sure of better shots and improved gameplay. Your performance on the course will always start with the type of golf club you are using. So, choose carefully!

15 Christian Icebreakers For You To Use At Church Or A Workshop 

You need to try some icebreakers that will help you get into conversation when you are in church or at some kind of church workshop. You want to keep yourself in the church atmosphere as much as possible because you do not know what people will be comfortable talking about, and that is why you need to take some steps to use Christian icebreakers that people will respond to easily. Try out each of the 15 here to see which one you like, and then you can get a conversation going that could lead to some fun talks.

What Church Do You Go To?

You can start off any conversation like this because it is just an easy way to get the conversation going. You can learn where someone goes to church, but you will also learn a lot about that person because they will probably feel like they need to explain how they got to that church.

This is a question that you will enjoy answering, and then you can easily keep going in that conversation based on just one question. It is always interesting to learn where people are from and where they attend.

Are There Other Churches In Your Area?

Talking about other churches in the area gives people a chance to talk about things and experiences that they have had in the area. You might want to go to those other churches if you can, or you might learn a lot about the way that people go to church in that area.

The person who talks to you about this might explain how they have liked the churches, or you can pick a new one. The explanation can lead to a lot more talk about the church culture where you live.

What Is the Music Like At Your Church?

The music at church could be contemporary or traditional, and you do not really want to lead with one of the other. The best thing about church could be the music, and the music makes the experience more fun. People usually get really excited about the way that they do music at their church, or they might start talking about things that they want to do.

This is a good talk to have because it will explain something about that person's church culture.

How Long Have You Been At Your Church?

The people who are asking about how long you have been at church want to know what it is like at your church, and it is a good time for you to explain why you are there.

You might have been there a long time, and that could lead to why you are still there. You might be the person who wants to know why they picked their church, or you might want to know why they move around. These are interesting questions to answer.

Do Your Kids Enjoy The Church?

Talking about what kids do in church is a good talk that everyone can have, and it helps people make sure that they can talk about their kids.

Everyone likes to talk about their kids, and you will be able to get into a conversation that allows you both to share. It is a lot more fun to talk about your kids instead of just standing around trying to think about something to talk about. You can share about your own kids, or you might even talk about the youth ministry which is very good for you and the church.

Have You Ever Performed At Church?

You might want to know what people do at church, and even if they do not perform at church, they will probably talk about the people that they know who do that.

They might gush about the things that they have seen at church, and you can talk about your own experiences. It is very interesting to learn about what kind of art goes on in a church because it might get forgotten with the regular worship service.

Are You A Musician?

This is just a good way to start talking about music in general.

You can talk about whether you liked the music in the church, or you can talk about the music that you heard at the conference. You can also find out what it is like for someone else who is a musician. You might meet the choir director, or you might meet someone who enjoys the service but is not a musician. You might meet someone who is learning, and that helps you make sure that you have learned about how music is done in other churches.

Are You Studying Anything Interesting?

Some people are actually in seminary, and it is fun to talk about that because you can learn a lot. You might want to get into a place where you can study yourself, and you might find out a good place to go when you want to learn yourself. It is something that you need to be sure that you talk about because you might get inspired to study something, go back to school or go to a bible group.

Have You Ever Done Any Missions Work?

Missions work is something that people love to talk about, but you also need to be sure that you have asked about how other churches do this. You can learn about what other churches are doing, and you might learn about the kinds of work that you could start doing at your church. You might even come up with a project that you want to do at your church.

Do You Have A Favorite Outreach At Your Church?

Outreach is something that every church does in one way or another, and it is very hard for you to avoid it. You have probably done some things that you will want to share with other people, and you also want to make sure that you have talked about things that the other person does. You might learn about something that you want to do at your church, or the two of you can share stories about your own work. It is very easy to talk about these things, and it might inspire you to do work at your church.

What Is Your Favorite Thing To Do At Church?

This is just a fun thing to talk about because people get passionate about what they love. You will be able to share your own stories, and you get to talk to someone who is bursting with energy that is pretty hard to deny. Remember that you could go back and forth for a long time about this, and it is a very good thing for you to talk about when you are meeting with kids. You can both talk about things you love, and you will not run out of things to talk about most of the time.

Have You Thought About Going Into Ministry?

You might want to learn this because people want to know what you are thinking about doing. You might want to go back to school, or you might meet someone who is very inspired and wants to do certain things in their life. That is something you can learn on your own, or it is something that you might be able to help people with if they are inspired to do a certain thing with their lives.

Does Your Family Have A Church History?

The history that your family has at church could be pretty interesting, and you need to make sure that you have shared it because it will tell a lot about you. You might meet people who did not grow up in church, or you might meet people who are the children of people in ministry. This can be interesting because you might learn something about these people that you would never have known, and they might not even share this if you have not asked them before.

Can I Visit Your Church Sometime?

People usually love to invite others to their church, and you will be able to see a new side of the church life that you have not seen before. Make sure that you have asked in a nice way, and they might even invite you to an event. You can invite people to your church, and then the two of you will be able to get in the habit of visiting other churches.

Is Anything New Coming Up At Your Church?

New events are fun to see because there are so many churches that do not have them. So, you want to make sure that you are asking people to come out to see you, and then you can come out to see their events. These could be festivals for the kids, or they could be big events that include things like Easter and Christmas pageants.

Trying any of these icebreakers will help you get a talk started, and Christian icebreakers make sure that they are family friendly.

You’ve never played Yahtzee before? No problem, here’s how you play:

Supplies:
Rules:

The rules of this game are simple enough that everyone can play.

Using only five of the six dice, the first person rolls the dice. The idea is to fill in all the spaces on your score card. For example, you will try to roll all ones, twos, threes, fours, fives, and sixes. If you roll all five of one number you will get a Yahtzee giving you 50 points! You will also want to try for three or four of a kind, full house, small and large straight, and a chance when you have nothing else to keep.

Each person gets three rolls, and with each roll, they can keep what they want and roll the rest or throw them all back in and try again. The last roll counts because you will have to take a score, so make sure it’s a good one!

You can also incorporate them into a relay race by giving each team a tire and making them roll it to the line and back.

If you wish to use these tires for their intended purpose then you will need to know that they are designed for one adult rider on each tube and no one under 9 years old should use them in the water.
