LDS Apostle Cards + Fun Ways to Use Them

Several years ago I shared my first version of LDS Apostle Cards and a General Conference Go Fish game idea. Over the years many of you have enjoyed my cards as well as the game idea. Since we have some new apostles some of you have commented and asked when/if I would be updating my cards. I am happy to announce that I have updated my LDS Apostle Cards!

LDS Apostle Cards

You will find 4 sheets with 4 cards each, the last page has 3 cards, to make a total of 15 cards. I also included a page of card backs in case you’d like to print a back onto each of your cards, but this is completely optional. This time I decided to put the apostles in order according to seniority.

In addition to my updated LDS Apostle Cards, I have some fun ways to use these great cards! I hope you enjoy what I share.

General Conference Go Fish!

First you will need to print out my LDS Apostle Cards (link at bottom of post). You can print out the apostle cards and 4 sheets of backs and glue them together OR you can print them ‘Front/Back’ using the printer setting on your printer. The first page of cards has a short description at the top, so the apostle cards are a little lower on the paper. If you choose to print using the front/back setting, be sure to print the first page of cards with the first page of backs. Then for the rest of the cards use the second page of backs. Make sense? I sure hope so. 🙂

For Go Fish you will actually need 4 sets of the LDS Apostle Cards, so print, print, print until you have 4 of each Apostle. Once you have them all printed you can choose to laminate them or leave them as-is. Now let’s play!

.

Go Fish Instructions & Rules

You will have 60 cards total in your deck. Hand each player 5 cards each, and leave the rest in a stack in the middle. Choose who will go first, and then have them ask another player if they have a specific apostle (“Do you have President Nelson?”). Just make sure the person asking has at least one of the cards that they are asking for.

If the person has any cards that were asked about, they will then hand them over to the person asking. If the person has none, they say “go fish”, and the player who asked draws a card from the card pile and adds it to their hand. Then it is the next player’s turn – unless the person drew the card he/she asked for, in which case they show it to the other players, and they gets another turn. When any player at any time has all four cards of an apostle, it forms a match, and the cards must be placed face up in front of that player.

When all sets of cards have been laid down in matches, the game ends. The player with the most matches wins!

.

OTHER GAME IDEAS

“Find the Prophet” aka:Old Maid

For this game you will once again need 4 sets of cards (minus 3 of the President Nelson cards; there should only be one). If you only have 2-3 players you could use 2 sets instead of 4. Shuffle and then deal all the cards to each player.

Decide who will go first, and have the person choose one player to take a card from. Make sure that no one can see each other’s cards. Play continues by everyone taking turns and choosing a card from someone else’s hand. As players find matches (matches of 2 or 4) in their hand, they lay them down onto the table.
Each player is trying to get rid of his cards as fast as possible. With ‘Old Maid’ the player left holding the ‘Old Maid’, loses. In ‘Find the Prophet’, the last person holding ‘President Monson’ WINS!

.

Apostle Memory Match

Another great game to play is a simple Memory type game. For this game you could use 2-4 sets of cards. Shuffle the cards, and then place them face down on a table or on the floor. Take turns flipping two cards over. When a match is found the player who flipped the cards keeps them. The player with the most matches at the end of the game wins!

.

LDS Apostle Flash Cards

My Apostle cards are also great for flash cards to help children memorize each of the apostles. Simply print and then try to memorize each of the Apostles. You could also punch a hole in the top corner and place them on a ring.

    We LOVE your Apostle Cards! I print them out every year for conference bags for my kids and families we minister to. I’m wondering if you have anything similar with some of the Sister leaders (primary, YW RS)? Thanks again!!

    1. Hi Jana! I love the idea of including cards for other leaders. I would have to get permission before sharing, but I could provide a blank card where you could add the pictures and names yourself.
