  1. Joanne

    This is a great game that my family really enjoyed playing together. We had lots of fun and it opened up conversations about the Good Shepherd. My 10-year-old said that it reflected real life, where sheep really need protection from a shepherd.

  2. Leah B Martin

    This card game was a favorite of my six-year-old! The goal is to protect your sheep using the shepherd cards, or to get to the other player’s cards using the sparrow card, wolf card, etc. I especially loved the 1 + 99 card.

  3. Gena

    The Good Shepherd is a card game where you have to do different things depending on what cards you draw and what you already hold in your hand. I loved the image of Jesus as our Good Shepherd and fighting against the wolves and protecting the sheep.

  4. Brandi

    My kindergartner could play this game all day! It’s easy enough for little ones to understand by matching the pictures, but also impactful because of the object: to guard the sheep, just as John 10:14 tells us Jesus is our good shepherd.

  5. Claire

    This is another family favorite in our home. We love it because it’s simple and fun to play. It’s a great way to talk about Jesus’ great love for us.

  6. Yong

    Just the right amount of Strategy, Competition and Chance built into a card game that keeps us going for the next round. And Humour too! Love the 1 + 99 card!

  7. Traci

    Easy, but be careful. There’s just enough risk with the wolf and stampede cards to keep my child on edge. A good game for learning to be a good sport.

  8. Alice

    Loving it. Super easy to play.
