I adapted a version of this game: Passages of the Prophets

The Prophets Game: The object of the game is to be the first player to go from square number 1 to square number 80. Age 5 to adult.


Playing piece for each player
1 die
Question Cards
Game Board

Set Up: Place your game pieces near square number one. Shuffle the deck and place it face down in a small basket near the game board. Put an empty basket nearby for the discards.

Rules: Basically the game is like Chutes and Ladders. Roll the die and move the corresponding number of squares. Each player gets one roll each turn. If you land on a square with an arrow on it, follow the arrow to where it ends. Arrows can go up or down. If you land on a prophet square, the person on your right picks up a Question Card and reads it out loud (if they cannot read it, someone else can read it for them). On each card is a question about a prophet from the Bible. If you answer correctly, you get to take an extra turn. If not, the game moves on to the next player. (For younger students they do not have to answer a question, they get to take an extra turn.) The first player to square #80 is the winner. You must land there by exact count. If your roll takes you past square #80, don’t move. Try again on your next turn.

Directions- Print out Directions. Keep inside file folder for safe keeping.

Game Board- Print game board on legal size paper (8.5” x 14”). Print out Game Board, trim, and glue on the inside of a legal size file folder or a piece of cardboard.

Question Cards- (Use these cards or make your own to make it more personalized.) Print Question Cards out on card stock. Cut out Question Cards. Laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make them last. Use only the cards that reflect your students’ abilities. There are 80 question cards for you to choose from.

*Playing pieces can be coins, colored buttons, game pieces from other games, fish rocks for the bottom of aquariums, craft foam cut into shapes, glass rocks for vases, etc. You can paint small objects such as rocks, small plastic tops or caps, etc. You can also buy pawns at game stores.
