Activity #2 - Project Angel

Game: Project Angel
Type of Game: Running and Repeating
Group Size: 10-50
Teams: Up to 5, 10 per team
Time Estimate: 45 minutes
Scoring: 20 points first winner, 10 second place

Materials: Two chair per team, 1 “World Plans” sheet per team, 1 “World Materials” pieces

Setup: Two chairs per group are set up at far end of the room. Two players from each team sit in them. They are The Architects. Two people from each team stand in the middle of the room with their feet tied together. These people are The Conveyors. The remaining teams sit at the opposite side of the room as the chairs. These are The Builders.

The Architects: It is the job of the architects to describe to the conveyors how to build the World. The architects may not show anyone else the World Plans. The architects may not use their hands to communicate any information. The architects may not leave their area,

The Conveyors: It is the job of the conveyors to listen to the architects and to tell the builders how to build the world. The conveyors must always have their feet joined together as they travel. The Conveyors cannot look at the World Plans. The conveyors cannot touch the World Plans or the World Materials.

The Builders: It is the job of the builders to build the world. The builders may not let the conveyors or the architect's touch the World Materials The builders may not leave their area.

Introduction: (Read aloud) “Welcome to creation. The earth is formless and void, but not for long! Very soon God will command all things into being! You are going to be playing the part of the character named Wisdom, talked about in Proverbs 8:

‘Oh simpleton, become wise
Oh fools, learn sense
Listen and I will speak great things
From my lips will come truth!
When YHVH caught me
There at the beginning
Before the ancient things
He did!
Before the Deep
Before the Earth
Before the Seas
I was there!
When He established all the Heavens
When He drew the circle of the Deep
When He made the Sky above
When He made the foundations
When He made the Sea boundary!
I was there like a master workman
And rejoiced in the world
Happy is the one who listens to me
Whoever finds me finds life!’

Goal: To be the first team to finish “Creation”

Instructions: (Read Aloud) “Your job is to try and fit together the pieces of creation just as its described in the creation account of Genesis. Because you are only Wisdom and not God, it’s your job to try and understand how it all works together. The people over here are The Architects of Wisdom, the ones in the middle are The Conveyors of Wisdom and the ones over here are The Builders of Wisdom.

It is The Builder's job determines if they are done. The Conveyors can help them make a decision, but the Builders have the final say. If you think you are done, raise your hands and call us over. The Architects may still not move. If you are right, the game is over and you are the winner. If you are wrong, you may continue building, but you have lost valuable time.

Once again, The Architects sit on one side, The Conveyors run to them and listen to instructions, run to The Builders on the other side and tell them how to build it.”

Debrief: Once the game is done, have the winning architects come over and talk to the winning builders. Let everyone else watch as they compare notes as to the difficulties and struggles in fitting everything together.
Reading: Proverbs 8:22-31 (JPS 1917)

22The LORD made me as the beginning of His way,
The first of His works of old.
23I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning,
Or ever the earth was.
24When there were no depths, I was brought forth;
When there were no fountains abounding with water.
25Before the mountains were settled,
Before the hills was I brought forth;
26While as yet He had not made the earth, nor the fields,
Nor the beginning of the dust of the world.
27When He established the heavens, I was there;
When He set a circle upon the face of the deep,
28When He made firm the skies above,
When the fountains of the deep showed their might,
29When He gave to the sea His decree,
That the waters should not transgress His commandment,
When He appointed the foundations of the earth;
30Then I was by Him, as a nursling;
And I was daily all delight,
Playing always before Him,
31Playing in His habitable earth,
And my delights are with the sons of men.
