How to Play
To play this game, first write down all the names of the Bible characters you want to include. There must be one character for every participant in the game. Assign each player’s character by attaching the piece of paper on their backs, forehead, or anywhere they won’t see.
The game can officially start once everyone has a character to guess. Each person must ask a variety of yes or no questions to everyone in the room until they get the correct answer. In the end, the first person to guess their assigned character is the winner.
While not everyone can be winners in this game, it’s popular for helping participants loosen up and get more comfortable with everyone in the group.

Knowing they kept their promise of chastity, she got pregnant through miraculous causes. Despite judgment and societal stigma, she stood strong and prevailed. She gave birth to Jesus and earned the title of the Virgin Mary.
Joseph was a kind and righteous man, according to everyone who knew him. He is a dutiful carpenter engaged to Mary. Despite Mary carrying a child, not of his own, he graciously faced the false accusations and public humiliation, choosing to have faith in the will of the Lord.
Adam was the first human God created in His likeness and image. God sent him to the Garden of Eden to look after His creations.
