Decatur, GA (PRWEB) September 4, 2004
ÂThe Kingdom Game,Â recently launched by New Hope Games LLC, is an exciting way to teach and study the Bible, creating an educational yet entertaining atmosphere for players of all ages. Suitable for family nights, Sunday School classes, Bible study groups and youth training unions, ÂThe Kingdom GameÂ is a card game Â like ÂMonopolyÂ Â with a simple set of rules.
ÂLearning about the Word of the Lord does not have to be painstaking or dull,Â says Ernest Martin, Founder and President of New Hope Games and the inventor of ÂThe Kingdom Game.Â ÂIndeed, it should be enlightening yet interesting, and ÂThe Kingdom GameÂ fills that need, pointing the way to the Kingdom of God without talking down to its audience.Â
Players draw cards from a deck and follow the printed instructions to move around the board, aiming to win the Crown by being the first into the Kingdom of God. Landing on a Penalty block involves forfeiture of Miracle or Repent cards or a trip to the Long Suffering block.
Accompanying players through the game Â and a necessary draw to enter the Kingdom Â is the Jesus card, symbolic of ManÂs own need of Christ to attain the Kingdom of God. Other essential concepts such as Sin and Salvation, Prayer, Heaven and Hell all find expression in ÂThe Kingdom Game.Â ÂMy family played ÂThe Kingdom GameÂ at our family night,Â says Eric of Gospel radio station 97.5 FM. ÂWe learned so much and had so much fun we made it a regular part of our weekly fellowship.Â
Travelling down the road to the Kingdom, players can read the LordÂs Word on their squares. With a Bible kept handy, ÂThe Kingdom GameÂ can turn into more than just an afternoon of board-game entertainment. It can become an instructive process to show children and young adults the beauty of the Biblical word, to point them towards the Kingdom of Heaven, and to help them find their own Jesus card in life.
ÂIn this age of moral and ethical decrepitude, when our young minds are being fed a steady diet of severely compromised values and Godlessness, ÂThe Kingdom GameÂ invigorates the mind, challenges the Âstatus quo,Â strengthens the Faith and increases Courage,Â says Elder R. E. Dean, Assistant Pastor and Bible Study Teacher at Hayes Faith Temple in Lithonia, Georgia. ÂI strongly recommend that each home have ÂThe Kingdom GameÂ, and become familiar with it.Â
