Christian Family Board Games

Christian Family Board Games

 


The American Bible Challenge Board Game (Fair)
I like that there's a variety of question types, including Bible trivia, spelling, and sequencing, but the game can get a bit repetitive.

Purchase


Bible Baffle Board Game (Fair)
This is another Bible trivia game that's very simple to play as you move up in your rainbow, but some of the questions are rather difficult. It's also based on the KJV, which can sometimes be an issue when referencing certain names. All in all, you answer questions correctly or you don't. Not much more to the game than that.

Purchase


Bible Baseball Board Game (Fair)
Move your token around the bases as you and your teammates answer Bible trivia questions correctly. This game been a Sunday School staple for years, but it works just as well with families who enjoy sports. There's not much strategy to the game, though, so the "baseball" is for visualization only.

Bible Challenge Board Game (Fair)
The goal of this Bible trivia game is to be the first to answer a question from all seven categories correctly, and besides the categories, there's a wide variety of questions, both in the number of questions and in their difficulty. Still, it's not much more than a question and answer game.
Purchase


The Bible Game: Old Testament and New Testament Board Games (Good)
The two editions of this game combine luck, trivia, and a little bit of strategy. It's a simple, fast game that's great for families to play together.

Bible Blurt! Board Game (Fair)
This is another Bible trivia game that makes you think quickly to come up with the right word to answer the question. It's not too difficult, so it makes a good party game.

Bible Journeys / The Life of Board Games (Fair)

Each of these board games have you answering multiple-choice trivia questions as you advance through the story on the board. They're good for reviewing and discussing the Bible but are fairly simple.

Bible Sequence Board Game (Excellent)
Draw the cards and work with your partner to get 5 in a row before the other team does. The game will remind you of the Bible events, and there are Scripture references on the cards to look up the stories while you play. If you're looking for easy but fun board games to play, this fits the bill.




Bible Tribond Board Game (Good)
What do the three clues have in common? Get the answer right, and you're that much closer to winning this very Trinity-fitting game. While being mostly just another Bible trivia game, I like the unique style of clues. Having three clues also makes the game a bit easier than answering open-ended trivia questions.

Bible Trivia Board Game (Good)
I like the multiple choice aspect of this game. It gives disciples of every level a better chance at answering correctly and thus having fun. There are also Judgment spaces and cards that do a variety of things when you land on them (not all of them are bad for you).

Purchase


Bibleopoly Board Game (Excellent)
Like Monopoly except totally different. In this game, you help your fellow players and build a church. It's a very fun idea that turns Monopoly on its head. It's another good one if you're looking for family board games.

Catholic Family Bible Game (Good)
Though it says "Catholic," this game is suitable for any believer. And, yes, it looks dated, but it's still a good game. It's a trivia game with a board that's set up to walk through the Bible. The nice thing about the questions is that you can set different players to be on various difficulty levels, so it really is a family-friendly game and even good for playing with those who don't know the Bible as well as some other players.

Purchase



Cranium: Bible Edition Board Game (Excellent)
One of my absolute favorite group games. It has everything from charades and Pictionary to Bible trivia and word puzzles. It's one of those board games the whole family can enjoy, no matter how old they are.

Daystar Board Game (Excellent)
Rather than a game, this is more like a simulation of the Christian life! Walk through the entire experience of being saved, developing in Christlikeness, and battling temptation in this game. There are also some trivia spaces that test your knowledge of the Bible.

Purchase


Divinity, the New Catholic Catechism Learning System Board  Game (Good)
Players circle the board once, answering questions or performing activities for the spaces that they land on. It's a quick game and easy game to play and is a great way to learn or reinforce Bible teaching and all-around Christian knowledge.

Purchase


Exodus from Egypt Board Game (Good)
The art is great for this game, and the questions and board are good for reviewing or discussing the Bible story. There's not a lot of strategy to the game, though.

Faith and Redemption Board Game (Excellent)
I love this game. First, you race to get the animals on the ark before the flood starts, then you travel the board seeking to avoid sins and convert as many people as possible. You have prayer and Scripture cards to help you along the way. Of course, landing on certain squares grants you bonuses as well, including forgiveness for sin cards you may have picked up during the game.

Purchase


Inspiration! Board Game (Good)
Part trivia, part strategy, part luck, there's something in this game for everyone. There are 3 play modes that increase its complexity. It's also a short game to learn and play. It's also a little different in that you're not answering questions based on the Bible but on Church history and how God has inspired His people to make scientific discoveries. The battle systems come into play as you control angels and other guardians to defeat obstacles in your path. 

Purchase


The Journeys of Paul Board Game (Good)
Strategize against the other players in this game to see if you can build more churches in the places Paul visited.

Miracles and Pitfalls Board Game (Good)
Answer Bible trivia questions in this game as you move around the board. Get blessings from the miracle cards to help you, or bad luck from the pitfall cards. You can often answer the category of question that your knowledge is strongest in, but sometimes, you'll have to meet the challenge of answering a category where you might be lacking.

Purchase


Pilgrim's Progress Board Game (Good)
Coming with an illustrated book, this board game and story based on the classic allegory makes for some great discussion with your kids. Gameplay is fairly simple, though, as you mostly have to rely on the luck of the dice and what cards you pull without employing any conscious strategy.

Purchase


The Road to Bethlehem Board Game (Excellent)
This is a game similar to Dungeons & Dragons in that you have one player who narrates the story and presents you with options. The difference, of course, is that it's a game for Christians, and you play as yourself, not a character you make up. As a team, you decide what to do and participate in real-life active challenges to act out parts of the story. The game is set up in chapters so that you'll need to play a few times before you reach the end of the story.

Purchase


Settlers of Canaan Board Game (Excellent)
This edition of the famous Settlers of Catan game puts you in the shoes of one of the tribes of Israel, trying to settle your territory and organize the national capital of Jerusalem. If you like civilization building games, this one's for you.
