    I have tons of games, most of them I have in a file at school though. One game my kids love is Sink or Swim. You form two teams. I have them line up in two lines across the room facing each other. I ask someone on team 1 a question, if they get it right they may sink someone on team 2. Then I go to someone on team 2, if they answer their question right they may either sink someone on team 1 or rescue their "sunken" team member. The kids really love this game. The winning team is the team with the most people still standing. Let me know if you need more details. I also play a game called Leapfrog. We played this today actually. I have lots of little frog pictures with point values written on them 5, 10, 15, 20. . . until 50. I also have about 5 frogs with the word leapfrog on them. I mix them all up and have them face down so the kids can't see whats on them. You can have any amount of teams for this. I ask a team a question if they get it right they get to pick a frog and they get however many points the frog has on it. Then you repeat this with other teams. The fun part is when someone gets the leapfrog. All of their points "leapfrog" over to the next team. It's pretty fun too. Like I said let me know if any of this isn't clear. I also have more games if you feel like you need some more.
