Tonight we had a get-together at church for the 20-something crowd. (No, we're not 20-something, but we are pastors at the church, so we got to go to meet everyone.) The main goal of the evening was for everyone to get acquainted. So, we played several get to know you games.
I have played many types of these games over the years, although the games tonight were a bit different than those I had played before. They have one recurring theme, though. As you are playing them, you are thinking to yourself, "This is probably the silliest thing I have ever done in my life."
But they do accomplish what their purpose is! We walked around making animal noises. We shot paper ball baskets backwards. We lined up in order of our ages, how long we have attended church here, and our shoe sizes. At the very end, we did something kind of like speed dating, only the point was to meet everyone. Interesting take! To top it off, we had barbecue along with potluck veggies and tons of cake. It was lots of fun, and we got to meet some great people!
