Commissioned

Ages 13+, 2-6 Players, 60 minute playing time

Commissioned is one of the most highly recommended cooperative Bible-themed board games available. Although based on the first 150 years of Church history, players do not need to know anything about the Bible or Church history to play this game.
In Commissioned, players are Apostles who must work together to strengthen their Faith decks, grow the Church, collect the books of the New Testament, and overcome trials. There are five game scenarios to choose from, each with a different set of victory conditions. For instance, to win in the “Acts of the Apostles” scenario, players must have a church in every city and collect all nine New Testament Word Cards before five churches are extinguished or the Trial deck runs out.
This game is played in rounds, with players taking turns to be the group’s elder and making decisions that affect the entire team. At the beginning of each round, players first build up their Faith decks, then live out their faith through trials, praying, sharing, moving and growing, and finally mature through expanding their Faith decks.
Commissioned also comes with a Theme Appendix for those who are interested in learning about the game’s historical setting.

 

Commissioned: The Call

Ages 14+, 1-6 Players, 45-75 minute playing time

Commissioned The Call

If you like Commissioned, check out this expansion set. Included here are cards, boards, tokens and other components that you can add to the standard base game, as well as additional new modules and ways to play. With this new expansion, you will enjoy wider player options, new strategic challenges, increased replayability and optional complexity.

 

True Frenemies

Ages 8+, 3-8 Players, 60-90 minute playing time

True Frenemies

Review excerpt by Jonathan Nelson, Gaming Bits:
True Frenemies is a beautiful and fun game that teaches as well as entertains. The game doesn’t take a very long time to play. Most games sessions are only about an hour long. The components are very nice and look fantastic. The artwork is gorgeous and the pieces are great quality. It’s family friendly and one that everyone can enjoy. The questions aren’t overly difficult and the multiple choice answers makes it possible for everyone to have a chance at answering correctly. The game does spark some real conversations as players draw a Face the Music card in which they might have to tell the dumbest thing that they’ve ever done or you might have to explain why you’re actually one of the mean girls. Needless to say, you’ll be laughing out loud at some of the silliness. I do like how well the Bible scriptures have been worked into the various cards, as well as explaining the path to salvation by collecting submission tokens. In my opinion, this is one of the best Christian games on the market, if not THE best. I truly love how everything works together and how much fun the game really is. This is a game that I highly recommend checking out. It’s a fantastic game that my family and I have definitely enjoyed playing. I look forward to playing it a lot more.

3 Seeds: Reap Where You Sow

Ages 12+, 2-5 Players, 30-45 minute playing time

3 Seeds is a deceptively simple yet highly interactive card game. Players take turns to sow seeds – Time, Money and Labor – into crops. The type and number of seeds required for each crop is indicated by the faceup crop card, while a separate facedown harvest card indicates the crop’s harvest value. Before sowing, players can either peek at any harvest card (their own or another player’s) or swap any 2 harvest cards. Players can sow into their own or other players’ crops. Crops can be harvested once the required seeds have been sowed and points are awarded to all players who have sowed into it.
The game ends when there are no more crop cards. Event cards and a bonus point system add to the complexity of the game.

Unauthorized

Ages 12+, 6-12 Players, 30 minute playing time

Unauthorized is a social deduction card game about the underground Church facing persecution from the State. Each player is assigned a role – for example, Pastor, Police, Rebel, Thief, Musician or Merchant – based on one of 12 role cards. Pastors are always loyal to the Church and Police are always loyal to the State. All other players, however, are neutral and their loyalty can be swayed by their experience cards. The game is played over 4 rounds, with 3 phases per round. During each turn, besides playing and/or passing their experience cards, players may also use their unique role power, look at a neighbor’s hand, seek parole (if in prison) or conduct a public execution (Police only). At the end of the game, either the Church or State wins, depending on the loyalty of the majority of the players.

 

Apples to Apples: Bible Edition

Ages 9+, 4-10 Players, 20-30 minute playing time

Apples to Apples: Bible Edition is similar to the popular party board game Apples to Apples, except that it has a Bible theme. The game is made up of Red Apple Cards and Green Apple Cards. Each Red Apple Card has a person’s name, place, thing or event found in the Bible, together with a Bible verse. For example, “The Bible” along with the Bible verse 2 Timothy 3:16.
Each Green Apple Card contains a characteristic of a person, place, thing or event, together with 3 synonyms. For example, “Trustworthy” along with “dependable”, “honest” and “reliable”.
At the beginning of the game, each player is dealt 7 Red Apple Cards. Players take turns to be the judge and pick 1 Green Apple Card from the top of a stack. Each player (except the judge) plays 1 Red Apple Card from your hand that most closely matches the Green Apple Card. The judge decides and awards the Green Apple Card to the winner. The first person to accumulate the required number of Green Apple Cards wins.

 

Soul of the Empire

Ages 14+, 2-4 Players, 2 hour playing time

Soul of the Empire

Soul of the Empire is a unique asymmetrical game, where each player has a different starting position, objectives, and powers. It is best played with 4 players, with each player selecting 1 of 4 factions: Roman, Coalition, Jewish or Christian. The first player to achieve either their special victory condition or 7 objective points wins the game.
Serious gamers will enjoy this game for its depth and complexity. For instance, dice are used to determine how many actions you may take on your next turn, but not in a straight-forward manner. Roll 5 dice up to 3 times. After each roll (like the game Yahtzee), you can choose which dice to keep and which to re-roll. Only those dice that form a set (same number) or a run (consecutive numbers) can be “spent” on various actions. Available actions include moving units, initiating combat, claiming objectives, retrieving dice from objective cards, purchasing or playing power cards. The Coalition faction has other additional available actions, such as blocking an objective or increasing rage.

 

Biblios

Ages 10+, 2-4 Players, 30 minute playing time

In Biblios, players are Abbots who are competing for the necessary Resource Cards (Pigments, Monks, Forbidden Tomes, Holy Books and Manuscripts) to build the most famous library and assemble the greatest book collection.
This Bible card game is played in two phases. In the first Gift phase, players take turns to allocate Resource Cards to themselves and to the other players, leaving some cards to be Auctioned in the next phase. In the second Auction phase, players use their Resource Cards to bid for the Auction cards. Thereafter, players add up the values of each type of Resource Cards (Pigments, Monks, Forbidden Tomes, Holy Books and Manuscripts) in their hands. The player with the most victory points wins.

 

Bible Sequence

Ages 6+, 2-6 Players, 10 minute playing time

Bible Sequence is a strategy game, similar with the board game Sequence, with a Bible theme.
The Bible Sequence gameboard has an 8-by-8 grid. Each space on the grid has a picture of a Bible story; each picture appears on two separate spaces.
The Bible Sequence cards have these same matching pictures, together with story titles and Bible references.
Each player has 4 or 5 cards in your hand (depending on the number of players) and takes turns to discard one card at a time. As you discard each card, place one of your colored chip on a space with the matching picture on the gameboard, The first player to place five chips in a row wins the game.

 

Let’s Have Church!

Ages 13+, 4+ Players, 30 minute playing time

This Bible board game, which is marketed as “The Hilarious Church Folk Party Game”, comes with 250 Playing Cards that are a mix of Bible-based questions and questions/jokes by/about church folks.
The game is played in 3 rounds.
In Round 1 “Trivia”, players must answer questions about “What Would Church Folk REALLY do” or about “Celebrity Church Folk” or Bible-based questions. For example, “In a national survey we asked everyday Church Folks, ‘What would you do if while going down for prayer after service you noticed that the person praying for you was in desparate need of a Tic Tac?’ What was the MOST popular response?”
In Round 2 “Performance”, players must draw or act out the given phrases, such as “Mountain on Fire” or “Stretch forth thy Hand”.
In Round 3 “Bible or Church Folks”, players must answer whether the given phrases are quoted from the Bible or church folks. For example, “God’s way or the highway”.
The team with the most correct answers win.

 

Kings of Israel

Ages 14+, 2-4 Players, 45 minute playing time

Kings of Israel, another popular cooperative Bible-themed board game, is based on the period when the nation of Israel was ruled by kings, starting from King Saul in approximately 1050 BC to the time the Northern Kingdom collapsed more than 300 years later. Although players do not need any knowledge about the Bible to play this game, it probably appeals more to those who are familiar with this period of Israel’s history.
In Kings of Israel, players are prophets who must build a specified number of altars (depending on the number of players) before Israel is destroyed or overrun by sin and idolatry. Players take turns to play, with each turn involving four phases: King’s Godliness, Sin Increases, Prophets Work and End of Round.

 

Wisdom of Solomon

Ages 14+, 1-5 Players, 30-75 minute playing time

Wisdom of Solomon is a remake of the game Kingdom of Solomon, with revised gameplay, artwork, and components.
In this worker placement game, players are King Solomon’s governors, and they must send out workers to gather resources, build structures, and expand the king’s influence throughout Israel.
The game board is divided into 2 sections. The left side is a miniaturized version of the city of Jerusalem, with a market area, a trading area, a foreman area, and a temple area with 4 holy spaces. The right side is a map of Solomon’s kingdom where players will build houses and roads.
“Favors” serves both as the currency for the purchase of resources, as well as the point system for game. The game ends when the temple is completed or there are no more houses to be built, and the player with the most “favors” wins.

 

Bibleopoly

Ages 8+, 2-6 Players, 60 minute playing time

BibleOpoly is almost identical to the boardgame Monopoly, except that it is modified to the Bible theme.
In BibleOpoly, instead of a Banker, there is an Overseer; instead of collecting $200 when you pass “Go”, you receive 10 offerings each time you pass “In the Beginning”; instead of going to “Jail”, you go to “Meditation”; instead of buying properties, you become caretakers of cities by making the required offerings to the Overseer; and instead of building houses and hotels, you build churches. But there is a twist in BibleOpoly, where instead of purchasing cornerstones that are required to build churches, players must earn them through helping fellow players or doing “Community Service”. This Bible board game ends when one player successfully builds a church.

 

Lifestories – Christian Version

Ages 6+, 2-8 Players, 30 minute playing time

This Christian board game serves as conversation starter for family and friends to share their life experiences with each other. It comes with a simple gameboard and 4 corresponding decks of “LifeStories” Cards: “Memories” (people and events from your past), “Etchings” (outside influences on your life), “Valuables” (your thoughts, hopes and dreams) and “Alternatives” (an optional and often amusing choice).
