    Um, I don't have any games, but I just did an onomatopoeia lesson with my 5h graders last week. We had a lot of fun. One thing I used is a video clip from Youtube that illustrates onomatopoeia. Here is the link:
    (We also watched a cute clip where Tigger sings about onomatopoeia, but that was just for fun, it didn't really add anything to the lesson).

    We brainstormed lots of examples, and I sometimes wrote an example on the board, and we discussed what might make those sounds. I also read a few poems that used it and we discussed how it is used frequently in comic strips. As a HW assignment, the kids had to create a comic strip, using five different examples of onomatopoeia. They enjoyed this; some kids did cool computer generated ones.
