Guess the Price Bible Game for Adults and Youths

How to Play

Keep the items you’ve prepared hidden from view. (One easy way is to use an opaque trash bag to store the items.)

Divide into teams. Each team can have 3-5 players. (Teams can be larger, but smaller teams allow everyone to be involved.)

Give each team some writing paper and a pen.

Show everyone the first item.
(To make it more like a game show, you may want to read out an elaborate description of the item.)

Give everyone 1 minute to discuss within their teams how much they think that item costs.
(They are not allowed to go online to check the price!)
Have all the teams write their answers on the paper provided.

When all the teams are ready, have them reveal their answers at the same time.

Disclose the actual price of the item.

The team with the closest answer wins that round and is awarded 100 points.
In the event of a tie, award 100 points to each winning team.

Play the next round with the next item.

You can play as many rounds as you like.

Tips

1. To make the game more fun, include a good mix of common items and not-so-common items.
Including several quirky items will also get you some laughs.

2. Instead of showing the actual items, you can use pictures of items instead.

3. To add variety to the game, for some rounds, instead of showing just 1 item, show everyone 5 items and have the teams arrange them from lowest to highest values.
