My online filing cabinet to share!

It is time to clean out and dispose of my many files but I am such a "keeper" that I can't just throw my years of stories, quotes, ideas, and memories away SO--- I am going to digitize them and put them in a blog to save in cyberspace as well. If anyone ever looks at this, I hope you find something that inspires creativity and fun energy!

Print or make signs that say "Jerusalem" and "Wilderness."
Make 2 of each signs that say "Brass Plates," "Ishmael's Daughters."  
Make a sign that says "Liahona."
Print the questions and cut them apart and put them in a bowl or hat to draw out randomly.

Label one side/end of the room “Jerusalem” and the other end “Wilderness.”  Prepare cards that say “Brass Plates,” “Ishmael’s Daughters”, and “Lianhona.”
Both teams start in “Jerusalem” and physically  move their team as they advance through the game.
You could use a picture of camel as a “game piece” instead of moving the group.

Divide group into two teams.  Mix older and younger ages.  Each person MUST have a copy of the Book of Mormon.

Read a question to Team #1.  Let them answer after a short 1-2 minutes discussion – do NOT use the scriptures.
After the answer is given, have a scriptures chase to determine if the answer is correct. 
If the answer is correct, Team #1 receives 2 points.
ALSO, the team who first has every member pointing to the scripture reference for the correct answer will receive 1 point! 
When a team reaches 5 points, then they are able to advance to the next level.  Continue game until one team receives a Liahona.

5 points: advance from Jerusalem to Wilderness
10 points: Wilderness to Jerusalem
15 points: Receive Brass Plates
20 points: Jerusalem to Wilderness
25 points: Wilderness to Jerusalem
30 points: Ishmael’s Daughters join the group
35 points: Jerusalem to Wilderness
40 points: Receive Liahona!

Receive your Liahona!
