We’ve abandoned our Song Game prior to the Monday night house groups. It made a nice icebreaker, but we’re now exploring other avenues.
Apologies about the exchange on Monday night, I just thought it’d be nice to have a Bowie themed game. It was a simple concept… one person names a Bowie song and we go around the room naming Bowie songs until someone hesitates or says “Um”. What could go wrong?
The first five minutes went really well, we had all the classics like Heroes, Life On Mars, Rebel Rebel… but then Jonathan Skimpy ruined everything by blurting out “Where the **** did Monday go?”
The song is called “Girl Loves Me” and shouting out lyrics from a song is breaking the rules of the game.
I spoke to the Archbishop of Riverdale, who was in attendance that night, and he suggested that perhaps we sit down and brainstorm an alternative game.
