Learning the Bible has never been so much fun!
Travel through various biblical eras (primeval history to early Christianity) answering questions about people of the Bible that address the who, where, when, what, how, and why of their places in salvation history. Players determine length of time and game play by choosing from any of the designated starting and stopping points on the board--the Garden of Eden, Egypt, the Promised Land, the Temple--with New Jerusalem as the final destination. The team or individual that collects the most character cards wins the game. Board game includes a free Bible!
This game is designed to be played two different ways:
If you're new to the Bible, the learn-as-you-play mode will help you get acquainted with Breakthrough! The Bible for Young Catholics and all the wonderful stories, characters, and lessons it holds. When faced with questions, you'll be free to look up the answers in the Bible.
If you're more experienced, you'll be able to test what you know about the Bible by answering the questions from memory with the test-your-knowledge mode of play.
