Preteen Game on Video – Human Battleship

If you’re looking for a fun preteen ministry game to play INDOORS this sumner (you know…to get a break from the heat), then Human Battleship is the game to play.

It’s so much fun! Your preteens will love it and want to play it over and over.

It’s a really cool “human twist” to a classic board game.

The youth group in the video is a large one, but it will totally work with a small group of only 10 or so. Seriously, it’s a lot of fun!

Enjoy the game!

How to Play

1. Split into 2 teams and make a room divider. When we played, we used folding tables as a divider. That way, students couldn’t see the location of the other team. But a stack of chairs will work just fine too.

2. Students throw balls in the air attempting to hit players on the other side.

3. Players are eliminated if hit by a ball, even if it bounces first. Players have to stay still and can’t move around. Players have to keep backs to the ground.

4. When hit, exit the playing area and help toss balls back in play for teammates.

5. In order to win, you must eliminate all the players on the opposing team.


One variation of this game is to use toilet paper instead of balls.

Just be sure to get students to clean up all the mess when the game is over.

  • Actually, it could go either way. I usually play a catch means you are out. However, you could do it like dodgeball where a catch means the person who throws it is out. Either way.
