“This game is awesome!”
About a year ago, I asked you to help fund the Kings of Israel board game. Today, that board game is available, and yes, it IS awesome!
Let me tell you a little about how the game works…
First of all this is a cooperative game, meaning you play against the game and not each other. For our family, this means a couple of things.
1. Our 14 year old daughter will play the game because she really detests competitive games…and
2. Our entire family can play together (with help).
Note: Kings of Israel is a mentally involved game where strategy is important. Because of this, it is geared more toward teens; however, with a little help our elementary aged students have been able to play.
In the game, each player is a prophet of Israel trying to build altars to destroy sin as the team works together through the the timeline of the Kings of Israel. Each player draws a card at the beginning of the game to tell them what special action they have that will help the other team members out. (For instance, you might draw a card that allows you to destroy all sin in an area every time an altar is built there.)
There are 4 things you do each turn, and every player plays every round. Sin builds with each round. Where you are on the timeline of kings determines what kind of cards you draw that round. The game is ever changing, and difficult enough that you will not win every time you play. Because of the adaptability of this game, it will be a family favorite for years and years!
This has become a game Blake enjoys playing with friends. He even took it with him on a recent trip! The other children enjoy it a lot too, but Blake is definitely my kid with the strategic mind. ;)
As a mom, I am pleased with the quality craftsmanship. I am also impressed that the makers of Kings of Israel (Funhill Games) have created a Biblically-based game that is intriguing, interesting, and intelligent. I am always pleased when I see Christians working hard to create top-of-the-line products.
By purchasing products like Kings of Israel, you are helping to support and promote these types of endeavors by fellow Christians. And stay tuned to Funhill Games…I expect even more great things from them in the near future, including a Kings of Israel video game version!
