Bang! Review Game Freebie



Don't you just love review games?!

I'll be tutoring Mary's class at our new CC campus this year (so excited!), so I've been keeping my eyes open for cute games to use in class.

I found Bang! at a wonderful piano teacher blog called Color In My Piano. Wow, is her site amazing! We've used some of Joy Morin's other games with our music practice at home, so I was very excited to come across something I could adapt for use with CC review!


I took an empty tissue box, wrapped it in pretty pink duct tape, printed off some cards, and viola! To play, students pull out a card and answer a review question in that category. If she says the correct answer, the student keeps the card. If she misses it, the class helps, and I'll probably still let her keep the card, depending on the ages in the class (at home, Mary will only get to keep the card if she answers correctly). If a student pulls out a Bang! card, all the cards she's collected must be returned to the pink box. Pretty easy!

Click here to download the Bang! cards and see more of Joy Morin's awesome games!

If you'd like to download the review category cards that I made, please click here. I printed on colored card stock and laminated (because, hey, if it can be laminated, I will laminate). ;)

Have you found any fun review games to use in class or at home? I'm always on the lookout, so holla back!

  1. I love this idea for a review game!
    I will be tutoring Journeymen this year and am looking for new games to add to my stash.
    Rather than "reinventing the wheel" I was wondering... Could you add "Presidents" to the list of review categories?
    Thanks for your post.

    1. Alithia, thanks for your comment! You could certainly slip a President card in there, or you could just ask your students to name them when you pull out a History card (that's what I plan on doing). Have fun tutoring!

  2. This looks excellent! Thanks for sharing, I'm off to print it out right now. We like the wiggle worm game from C3 as well, I have a 5 year old and she loves to get her wiggles out! The other one I came across and am going to try is for the math skip counting, to put each number in the series on construction paper and have the kids run to each number in order.

  3. thanks for printable!

    alithia- i think presidents would fall under week 24 timeline. i wish they were still spread out like in the 3rd edition.

  4. If the student will keep the card, how many subject cards and BANG cards do you have in that box? I have 9 students in my class.

    1. I was wondering the same thing. Also, I have Abecedarians, do you think this would be a successful game for that age, or would they just cry about having to put the cards back in the box?
      Thanks!

    2. I have Abecedarians, too, and I just have one page of each subject (don't remember how many were on the page, 8 maybe?) in the box. I don't want the game to take too long and lose their attention. Anonymous, I think the game would really depend on the dynamics of the class. I haven't used my game yet, but I've heard it worked well in a class with six-year-olds. Please let me know how it goes if you give it a try! :) And sorry for the late reply, Hollie. Have a great weekend!

  5. Just did BANG! in my class of apprentices today! Went awesome! The BANG card came out 3 times in 15 minutes. What anticipation they had! I really liked how they kids left CC with smiles on their faces! Thank you for tweaking this game and sharing it with us!

  6. I like this idea a lot. I'm tutoring Journeymen this year. My question is how do you cover all 7 weeks of review for each subject if a student pulls out science? Are you putting seven science cards in the box? Seven of each category? Or, do you have to wait until someone gets the "bang" card, so she has to put all her cards back? I'm looking for the fastest way of reviewing all 7 weeks for each subject in a half hour. Thank you!!!
