Christian Kids' Games

Abundant Harvest for Kids and Adults (Good)
Play this game with your kids to start them thinking about real-life decisions they're likely to come up against every day. There isn't much direct Christian content in the game, but you can tell it's in the theme of the game, and you can certainly make your conversations about what God wants us to do in each situation and why.
Purchase



All Aboard the Ark (Excellent)
I like this memory matching game because it's cooperative between two players as you help each other remember where the animals are and because there's a sense of urgency to it. If you flip over 10 Flood cards before you find all the animal matches, you lose.

Purchase


Answer That! Adventures in Odyssey (Good)
Fans of the Adventures in Odyssey animated movies will enjoy this DVD game. It's great to play as a family, and even if you haven't seen all the movies, the game will show you clips that hold the answers to the questions.

Purchase


Animo: Living Deck Bible Verse Game (Excellent)
If you're looking for an alternative to Pokemon, this is it! With lots of characters and different modes of play, Animo is a definite winner for younger (and maybe some older) players. Create your deck how you want and develop the best strategy to defeat your opponent!
Purchase



The Apostles: Spread the Gospel Board Game (Fair)
This is a Chutes and Ladders type of game that uses events from the New Testament as the different spaces on the board. While I appreciate the idea, the simple text referencing the event isn't very appealing to children.

Purchase


Bible Old Man (Excellent)
This is a version of the game Old Maid but with Bible characters, so your kids will become more familiar with people of the Bible. Use the game as a review or teaching opportunity.

Bible Rummy (Excellent)
Rummy itself is a great game, and it gets even better when you can illustrate it with Bible stories. Use the game to reinforce your children's learning. It's good for introducing them to new stories too.

Purchase



Bible Snap! (Excellent)
This is another classic card game-turned Bible game. Players take turns laying down cards in front of them and calling out when they see a match in front of two players or between a player and the "pot." It's a fun game that goes quickly and has the added benefit of reinforcing Bible stories.

Purchase


Blink Bible Edition (Good)
Match the colors, shapes, or numbers as fast as possible to play all your cards and be the first one out. Good for kids and small children's ministries.

By Their Fruits (Good)
This board game has a lot of variety as to what can happen when you land on a tile and is great for teaching kids what it means to live a Christian life. It's a simple game to play, and the colorful board and pieces are perfect for kids.

Purchase


Chapter & Verse (Fair)
This is a great idea: exploring, solving puzzling, figuring out a puzzle. Unfortunately, the gameplay gets a little repetitive and boring.

Purchase


The Great Adventure Bible Game Card Set (Excellent)
This beautifully illustrated set of cards can be used to play anything from Go Fish! to Rummy to Doubt It to Spoons.

Purchase

Go Fish! 
Instead of rating these Christian editions of the classic game, I'll simply include a note on what makes each one different. You can't really change Go Fish! that much.

Bible Go Fish
Purchase

Uses "Thank you, God..." phrases and cute cartoon pictures.

In the Footsteps of Jesus
Purchase

Uses locations and stories from the life of Jesus, includes Scripture but maybe not the best art style for kids.

Purchase


Noah's Ark: Don't Rock the Boat!  (Excellent)
This is a very educational and thrilling game for children. They'll learn about the animals, about decision-making, and about estimating weights as they place differently weighted animal figurines on the ark, trying to keep it in balance longer than their opponent can. Each animal has a fact card that comes with it.

Purchase


Operation: Noah's Ark Edition  (Excellent)
There's not a lot of learning here, but practicing the coordination needed and feeling the excitement of Operation is always fun, and having the Biblical theme will at least help kids remember the story.

Purchase

Trivia Games
There isn't a lot to these games, just questions and answers to see who can get the most points, but they're effective for filling time after a lesson, spending time with your children, and learning the Bible in an easy, fun format. Here are some of the games we've come across in this category.
