How to Play Parable Parade
Jesus was a masterful storyteller. Using common objects like sheep and seeds, Jesus told short but powerful parables to help His audience grasp important spiritual truths. This game features 12 of Jesus’ parables.
The objective of the game is to form complete sets of Parable Cards. Each set comprises 4 cards of the same parable and is identified by a colored title bar on the top-left of the cards. The first player to form 2 complete sets of Parable Cards wins.
On your turn you can draw as many cards as you like provided you do not get an Oopsie! Card.
If you get an Oopsie! Card, your turn ends and you must discard 3 cards.
Accumulate Kingdom Cards and use them take a Parable Card from another player.

We love this game and how it focuses on teaching the parables of Jesus! I love how it helps kids to distill the parables down into four parts to help them focus on learning them. The cards are a nice, sturdy quality and I know they will last.

Even as an adult, I can easily get my parables mixed up. This game has helped refresh my memory and has taught my 5-year-old what the parables are. There are also “summary” cards that help phrase the parable in a very practical way. My daughter has already learned so much through the word pictures and summaries, just by simply playing this game.
This game is a favorite with my children ages 5-14. They have spent hours and many laughs playing this together. Simple and fun for all ages
Simple and fun games that the whole family can play together. My kids aged 4-9 all enjoyed it and it was a good way to talk about the parables too!
Our family loves this game! It has become my girls new favorite game and it’s great that they are learning Bible parables at the same time,
This is a simple and fun game for grandparents to play with their grandchildren. We played it recently on a visit with our grandkids ages 13-5. They all enjoyed it, and it was a great way to spend some time learning/reviewing the Parables. And, the Oopsie cards add an extra element of fun!
This is such a fun unique way to help kids remember Bible parables and the meaning of each one. My middle schooler and I had a blast with this one.
