Satan’s on the Warpath

BEWARE!!!! This game can be very rowdy!!
This game is best played in a church ith lots of available rooms. Have enough blank cards for every player. On one write “Christian” on the other write “Satan”. The rest are blank. Let everyone draw a card. Everyone finds a room to hide in until they hear you yell “go”. Satan needs to get a scarf (flag)in a neutral location (we put ours in the foyer) and hide it. The flag must be totally visible. But this game works best if played in the dark so Satan can use that to their advantage. The leader waits for about two minutes and yells GO! The object of the game is for Satan to kill everyone and the rest to find the flag before Satan kills them. All Satan has to do is squeeze their shoulder and say “you’re dead”. The player then counts to 10 and finds a creative way to die. The Christian has the power to resurrect anyone. All they have to do is touch the dead person and say “you are forgiven”. But the Christian can die too and then there is no hope. The winner is Satan if everyone is dead or whoever finds the flag. I make my youth play this game in silence because they tend to share who Satan is and that ruins the suspense. Satan can move the flag anytime they wish but if they are carrying the flag they can not kill. We talk about how this game relates to the real world after we play. This game is very addictive. We’ve played it every Sunday all summer!
