BibleOpoly

How many hours do you remember playing Monopoly as a kid? Late for the Sky has a Bible version, Bibleopoly which emphasizes cooperation.

He commanded tribute from Israel’s neighbors, expanded Israel’s borders, built roads and fortresses, and kept the peace within the land. His merchants filled the kingdom with exotic goods such as spices, ivory, apes, and peacocks.

Kings of Israel

We don’t have this one but it is on our list to buy for the family for Christmas. I love how the focus of the Christian board game Kings of Israel is on learning: geography, Israel’s kings and biblical events!

 

Overwhelmed by hordes of invading nations – and a series of corrupt kings – the fate of Israel is balanced on a knife’s edge! The Northern Kingdom’s only hope is that a band of prophets can cleanse it of evil and idolatry before the wrath of God does so – permanently. Kings of Israel is a cooperative game that places two to four players in the role of prophets struggling to save their nation from threats both internal and external. Do you have what it takes to overcome the forces of evil? Or will you let Israel succumb to its own destruction?

 

Kings of Israel takes place in Israel (the Northern Kingdom) during the reign of its kings up until Israel’s destruction by Assyria. Players are on a team and each person represents a line of prophets that are trying to remove evil and idols from Israel, while building altars throughout the land. If the players are able to build enough altars before the game ends, they win. If Israel is overrun with evil or idols, or Assyria destroys Israel, the prophets all lose.
