How to Play:

1. Research the past year and find twelve major events-one from each month-such as a natural disaster, political coup, business failure, Hollywood surprise, popular person's death, and so on.

2. Write each event on a separate sheet of paper, and glue or tape relevant pictures to the sheet if possible.

3. Write down the dates for each event on a separate sheet of paper, coded so you can correlate the dates to the event.

4. Distribute pencils and paper.

5. Hold up a sheet of paper with an event, and ask the players to write down when the event occurred during the past year. Have them write down the month and the date, in case of a tie.

6. After you've displayed all twelve events and the players have guessed the dates of each, reveal the actual dates. Give a point for each correct answer.

7. Award a prize to the player with the most points.


Hand out index cards, and have the players write down a significant event in his or her life. For example: wedding, birth of a child, moving to the community, and so on. Collect the cards, shuffle them, and read them once at a time. Have the players guess the date of the event. Or have the players write down the event and the date, and have the rest of the players guess the person to whom the event belongs.
