Here is a website with great game ideas. They have a few Bible game ideas, Books of the Bible, and Adam naming the animals, and I really like her rendition of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

Games For Learning

All of these are review games so you make up your own game cards depending on your rotation lesson topics.

Simple yet effective
