Risk Takers

Tomorrow night is another Junior High even with my church. A fan favourite, Risk Takers.

It's basically a live-action stock market game where the kids can buy and sell stocks as they go up and down in different rounds.

When I played it for the first time last year, I really wasn't sure about it. It sounds very complicated for a bunch of 11 and 12 year olds to pick up on. There's a lot of strategy involved and I wasn't even sure I totally understood it. But it was a huge hit! The kids got it right away and did a really great job playing.

This year, AJ was writing the scenarios that caused each stock to rise and fall and let me help him. I love creative writing like that so I had a lot of fun with it.

Not sure if I'll be on a team tomorrow night or selling stocks or being the banker like last year, but I'm looking forward to a fun night!
