How Christian Board Games Help You Learn The Bible

Aug 3, 2008
A number of board games exist which can help you improve your trivia knowledge, verbal skills, creative thinking, all in a fun way. However, most of these games aren't suited to help you improve your Bible knowledge in any way, and if your faith is the most important thing in your life, this could be a problem. Having a wide base of Bible knowledge can be more important than knowing trivia, having great verbal skills or even your creative thinking, for none of those things will help you strengthen your faith as a good, working knowledge of the Bible will.

Bible games actually date back into the late 1890s. The Decker Partners released a game called Bible Characters. The game experienced some popularity because soon after, other games started to be released, with titles like Bible Authors, Bible Game of Facts, Places, and Events, and Bible Boys. Since this time, there has always been a market for quality board games based on the Bible, however unknown it might be to the general public.

Today, a number of board games exist in a variety of formats to help stimulate your Bible knowledge. Apples to Apples, a popular word association game, has a special Bible edition to help you start to draw associations between Biblical characters and events. This can help you start to understand the Bible better in connections between people, events, and different themes that the Bible tries to instruct on. In the same vein, the popular game Mad Gab has a special Bible version available to interested players. In this game, you need to sound out a seemingly nonsense phrase made up of random words. However, when spoken in the correct way, these words make a phrase that is also related to the Bible. Having a broad base of Bible knowledge can only help you do well in this game and this, in turn, can help you inspire to study the Bible more.

There are a few Bible Trivia DVD games available to players, allowing them to focus more on the game and putting everyone at a level playing field. When you play a Bible trivia game, it is almost assuredly so that you will learn at least one new Bible fact during game play. The Bible is a wealth of knowledge, not only in its instruction, but also in the facts and trivia that it contains. There are many different situations and people mentioned in the Bible and knowing all of it would be a daunting task for anyone. By playing a Bible trivia game, you really can help improve your Bible trivia knowledge.

There are a number of Biblical strategy games available to you as well. These games don't focus as much on the trivia and knowledge aspect of the Bible as much as recreating a event or a scene from the Bible for players to play out in the game. Why this game may not directly increase your knowledge of the Bible, it can be great for making you and the other players more interested in the events you are playing out, inspiring you to find out more. The Bible is a great source of inspiration, not only for your faith, but to find fun also!
