Split your students into two teams. Designate a captain for each team. Send one group and their captain to one side of the room and the other group and captain to the opposing side. Tape a half line to divide the room into two equal parts. Tape a circle that is six to eight feed in diameter at the back of a team’s zone and one on the other side of the room at the other team’s zone. Place the captain in that circle on their side. The other students are soldiers. Their job is to hit the other team’s captain with a paper ball. The captain’s job is to not get hit. They can dodge, jump, and move so long as it is not outside of the circle. No soldier can come into the circle to defend their captain. Post a leader up on each side to count number of hits on a soldier. Soldiers can cross into the other teams lines but if they get hit they have to go back. You should have two sheets of paper per person to wad up so there are enough paper wads. Score this however you want and play it for as long as you want.

    I grew up playing this game in youth group and now play it with my youth group, its great. But can I add two things?

    1 – Tinfoil works a lot better than paper, paper is too hard to get to actually fly across the room, just watch how big the balls of tinfoil get.

    2 – in 2002 before he hosted Late Night, Jimmy Fallon released a CD with a song called snow ball fight which works perfectly for this game, it provides great 2 minute rounds (thats how long the song is) and pumps up the kids playing, check it out

    Another thing we have like to do with this game is introduce yellow balled up paper at random intervals and tell the kids not to touch the yellow snow, if they do some form of punishment ensues. Also if possible playing this game in a black light only lit room makes it awesome. When we do our Christmas club we almost always do it as a white out club, with everyone dressed in white, also coordinates nicely with the wrapping up of the Resurrection talk.
