How to Play
The objective of the game is to identify your own Bible character by asking only yes or no questions.
For Small Groups
Have everyone sit in a circle.
Explain that you will be giving everyone a “Who Am I?” card, but they are not allowed to look at their own cards. This is the Bible character they have been assigned.
Distribute the “Who Am I?” cards, facing down.
Everyone must put the card on their foreheads such that everyone else (except themselves) can see their cards.
Provide headbands or sticky tape to hold the cards in place.
(Alternatively, write the Bible characters on Post-it notes)
One player starts by asking the group a yes or no question.
For example, “Am I a male?” or “Am I an Old Testament character?” or “Did I appear in the book of Genesis?”
The group replies and the turn passes to the next player.
The game ends when everyone can identify his/her Bible character.
You can play as many rounds as you like.
For Large Groups
Instead of sitting in a circle, everyone must move around the room to ask other players yes or no questions. After asking each question, players must look for a different person to ask the next question.
