I would love to help ... it is an interesting topic.
Firstly ...
What exactly do you mean by "some new" ... "innovative"?
Do you mean you must write about your own ideas or do you mmean you must write about ideas based on modern new teaching theories?
Secondly ...
I think games are not already taken since games are dynamic and adaptive. You must adapt the game to suit the lessons purpose and the needs of your class. Games are games, but they are powerful teaching tools with proper guidance by teachers.
Please spend a little time to make your question clearer so as to get more suitable (and useful) answers.

Hi Mini9,

one of our German book-publishing houses has created a new section called "sofa-tutor". It works like this: students have to prepare a special topic (grammar, literature...) as if they were young teachers. They have to work with flipcharts, pps, smartboard presentations and so on - and they get filmed. The better they can present and explain the better the other pupils can understand. The students are really very enthusiastic about this and work very hard.
I think your students and their parents would be very proud about a youtube video.
Here is a German-English example:
