History is my favorite subject.  Playing history trivia games is one of my favorite past times.  If you are a history lover/game player, you will love this game.

Things You Will Need: 
  • At least 2 players (The more the better)
  • Your brains
Name of the Game: Be the first to guess the answer.

Nominate one player to be "it".  Let that person think of a person from history.  Once that person has thought of someone give the others players a "Go".   They will ask "yes" or "no" questions to guess the ultimate answer.  For instance guess whether it as a boy or girl, what country he/she is from, if the person had a family, kids, wife, if he/she was young, old, famous, leader, etc.  Here is an illustration.     

"Boy"?                           "Yes".                              

"American"?                          "Yes".

"President"?                     "Yes".

"George Washington"!              "Yes".

Now the game is not likely to go this fast, after all this is only an illustration.  And you are not going to get them all right right of the bat.  Have fun!

Seven Crossings

Hello!  Welcome to Seven Crossings.  This is Mikaela and Justice.  We are one of the three "buddy" teams in our house.
You might be wondering why we called our blog Seven Crossings.  We used the name Seven Crossings because we have 7 siblings and we very often "cross" each others paths.  Also, God's perfect number is 7.  If you look in the bible, He created the world and the universe in 7 days, He established the 7 day week, the rainbow, God's covenant with Noah, has 7 colors, and if you remember in Pharaohs dreams there were 7 cows, 7 ears of corn, and 7 years of famine. And in the new Testament there were 5 loaves and 2 fish (5+2=7).  Isn't that so amazing?   So now you know why we are named Seven Crossings.
