Popular Games With A Bible Edition
Ages 9+ | 4-10 Players
The classic version of Apples to Apples is a favorite in our house! Now with the Bible Edition, you can compare people, places, things, and events from the Bible.
To play, it’s as easy as comparing apples to apples (Did see what they did there!?)
Just open the box, deal the cards and you’re ready to play. Select the card from your hand that you think is best described by a card played by the judge and try to win. When you collect enough cards, you win the game!
Ages 8+ | 2-8 Players
This is a fun twist on the classic game of Monopoly you know and love. Instead of bankrupting other players, you have a community-centered goal to build a church instead.
This family-friendly version focuses on giving rather than gaining wealth and the game requires cooperation rather than competition.
It’ll teach you good ethics, how to be kind, how to think about others and how to have effective communication skills all while having a seriously fun family game night.
Ages 8+ | 2-4 Players
If you like word games and appreciate the Bible, you’ll love this game.
Compared to the original Scrabble game board…
- The Bible edition has biblical symbols in place of bonus spaces
- It allows you to score bonus points when you use inspirational words like “cross”, “holy”, “servant”, and “love”.
- You can use proper names like, “Jesus”, “Mary”, and “Joseph”.
Most people love the Christian twist, but a few reviewers have said that you could create your own rules using a standard Scrabble game board to create a similar game. It’s up to you!
Ages 12+ | 2-4 Players
If you’re looking for an extra Bible challenge, you’ll definitely get it with the Bible Edition of Scattergories. Instead of guessing “items in your refrigerator” that might start with the letter S, you’ll guess “women in the Bible” or “sins” that start with the letter S before the timer runs out.
Because the pool of items is much smaller due to the biblical theme, I wouldn’t call this one kid-friendly, but it is still a very fun Christian game for adults!
5. Bible Taboo
Ages 13+ | 4 or More Players
The Bible Edition of Taboo is a top favorite game, especially when we have a big crowd of family members or friends in our house!
The rules are the exact same at the original Taboo game, but the playing cards are Biblically themed. You can play it with two couples or with a large party, all you need to do it split up into two teams. The team who scores the most points wins.
I also think this is a fun game to bring to a youth group or small group function within your church. My only complaint is that Pope Francis is listed as a card and he’s clearly not named in the Bible.
Ages 8+ | 2-24 More Players
Bible Guesstures is a hilarious game that challenges you to high-speed charades. It includes easy, medium and hard cards so that no matter your skill level, almost anyone can play.
You can play with a friend or with an entire crew. Your team only has a few short seconds to guess each word. An example of some of the cards would “Lamb”, “Moses”, “Cross” and “Baptize”. As soon as your team guesses the word, grab it before it gets dropped by the Mimer Timer, then hurry on the next card.
Ages 8+ | 3-10 Players
Imagine the silly faces your friends and family will make as they try to speak out “forbidden fruit” or “the powers that be” while wearing cheek retractors/ mouthpieces. This can be played with a big group and would be perfect for church functions or a good ole clean family game night.
NOTE: When buying it on Amazon, one reviewer warns: “When ordering expansion cards for the Watch Ya Mouth game, make sure you check to verify that it is indeed sold by Amazon and shipped by Amazon. If you don’t, you will get a China knock-off with cheap cards that have many misspelled words and duplicated cards.”
Ages 16+ | 2 or More Players
Outburst Bible Edition is a crowd-pleasing game of topics. Your goal as a team is to burst out answers and have them match the 10 target answers that are on the topic card. Some of the topics say, “Queens in the Bible”, “Musical instruments in the Bible”, or “Attributes of God”. Divide into two teams and see who can score the most points! One review said, “Even though some of the questions are hard, you’ll be able to learn something from them and laugh at yourself when you get stumped.”
Ages 10+ | 2-12 Players
It’s not what you say, it’s what you hear! In Mad gab, teams work to decipher groups of unrelated words into real phrases before time runs out. The Bible edition is no different, it just uses references from the New International Version (NIV) Bible!
Teams have two minutes to sound out three puzzles. To win, remember that repetition is key. Repeat the words a few times aloud, and you’re sure to guess that you are actually saying. Bible Mad Gab is better in groups but it can be fun one-on-one to test and see if someone can get it.
Ages 10+ | 3-12 or More Players (Junior rules available for ages 7 to 9)
Take a journey through the Gospel in the Bible board game of word racing. The best part: you don’t have to be a Bible scholar or expert to play! Also ten percent of the royalties collected from the sale of the game go to support Christian ministries in the United States!
In regards to the game, many of the questions reference everyday words found in the Bible but are easy enough that almost anyone can play. I really love how each question has a Bible verse reference so you can look it up to see how the word was used in the Bible. This is a great way to play a game but also use the Bible simultaneously!
Christian Board Games For Kids Under 8 Years Old
This Christian version of the classic Operation is a fun way to teach preschoolers about Noah and the animals he brought onto the ark. It will have you and Noah scrambling to gather all of the animals before the biggest rainstorm in the history of the world!
Carefully pull out each of the animals out of their designated slots with the tweezers, but watch out! If you touch the side, you’ll hear the rumbling of thunder.
Ages 4-10 | 2-4 Players
In the game “Veggietales: Don’t Sink in the Sink”, your children will have fun helping one of their favorite Veggies get to the other side and win this silly race. Don’t worry, there’s no water required.
With the game’s clever design, you can change the bridge piece on the board so that the sinkholes are in different locations each time you play. This keeps the game interesting time after time.
Ages 4+ | 2 Players
This Noah’s Ark inspired matching game is a fun twist on the classic memory game.
To win, match up animals in pairs and get them into the ark before the floodwaters rise! But if one loses, we all lose and if one wins, we all win since this game is played with all players working together to make a match. Great for preschoolers and young elementary-age kids.
14. Bible Bingo
Ages 4+ | Up to 24 Players
Since Bingo is universally understood, it’s a great game for friends and family of all ages. I love that this Bible version includes lots from vibrant graphics so even younger kids who can’t read can play.
It’s a fun way to share the Gospel at a kids birthday party or just to keep Christ at the center of your next family game night.
15. Bible Old Man
Ages 4+ | 2-6 Players
Bible Old Man is a Christian spin on the classic game Old Maid and is perfect for families with young children. The cards include the cast of 24 Bible characters. The cards are beautifully illustrated and come with jumbo-sized cards so that even little hands can easily hold the cards.
If you want a fun, creative way to reinforce Biblical principles and increase Bible knowledge in your small children, this card game does not disappoint!
16. Bible Go-Fish
Bible Go-Fish is not only a fun game for little kids but also serves as a great reminder to be thankful for all of God’s blessings.
Beyond the standard game of Go-Fish, these cards can also be turned into a memory matching game. With your purchase, it also includes a free bonus song “I Thank God For You” that’s available for download.
Ages 6+ | 2-6 Players
This fully referenced and scripturally-sound board game is a challenging but fun game to test your kids’ knowledge of Bible facts.
The object of the game is to complete a flight up the rainbow by correctly answering a question in each of the 7 Bible categories; the Old Testament, History and Geography, Prophets and Miracles, Names, Letters, Number and Sequences, New Testament and Wisdom.
All questions and answers are simplified and presented for children. Answers include appropriate reference to chapter and verse in the King James Version (KJV) Bible. The first player to answer a question correctly from each category completes the flight up the rainbow and wins the game!
Note: The box says it’s suitable for kids 6 and older but it honestly depends on the biblical knowledge of the players. Whether you’ve grown up in church all your life or you’re a new believer, there’s something for every stage to learn in this game!
If you want a simpler way to test your Bible facts, these Bible Trivia flashcards are a will challenge your knowledge with four different categories. If you have different skill levels, don’t worry! There are two levels of trivia on each card for growing abilities.
I also think this is a great game to take for long road trips or short trips around town.
Ages 6+ | 2-6 Players
The standard game of sequence is an exciting game of strategy and the Bible edition is no different.
This unique version comes with cards that feature story titles and scripture references. You’ll play your chip on the matching square on the gameboard and when you have 5 of your chips in a row, you’d got a sequence and you win! One reviewer said, “It’s simple but a great way to spur conversation about what Bible story each picture represents.”
Ages 7+ | 2-4 Players
In this adventurous board game, BibleMan and his friends are on a mission to rescue children that have been tricked by enemies of God.
Players select a hero card and matching token to battle the “Bad Guys” while traveling quickly through the town of Shatzville in an attempt to “save the children.” The first player to rescue six kids, deliver them safely to the town church and race back to the BibleMan Cave is the winner!
The BibleMan board game is actually two games in one. The basic game (geared towards ages 3-5) is very easy to play while the advanced game (geared to kids 7+) adds interest for the older age group.
Fun & Unique Bible Board Games For Families
Ages 10+ | 2-4 Players
If you’ve ever heard of Dave Ramsey’s debt snowball concept or seven-step system to get out of debt and build wealth, you’ll love this game!
In this game, players earn a salary, pay bills, save and pay down debt. Kids and adults alike will discover the importance of budgeting, saving and staying gazelle intense so they can be the first to yell, “I’m debt freeeee!”
This game is truly a great way for the whole family to learn and apply Biblical money principles.
Ages 8+ | 2 or More Players
This is a card game version of “20 Questions”, where you give up to 20 twenty clues to players who are trying to guess either a person, place, or thing mentioned in the Bible.
It’s challenging enough for adults, but the last few clues make it easy enough for kids with a basic understanding of Bible stories.
Ages 11+ | 5-48 Players
PHARISEES: The Party Game is a new twist on Mafia, the classic party game we all know and love. Except, this time, it’s got a little less organized crime and a lot more Bible verses.
Picture this: you live in a distant land, many centuries ago. You’ve recently begun following a controversial new prophet named Jesus…and the religious leaders of the day, the Pharisees, aren’t very happy about it.
Each night, the Pharisees sneak into your community in search of one of Jesus’ disciples to stone.
Can the disciples find and excommunicate the Pharisees before they stone them all?
“Pharisees” is the perfect party game for anywhere from 5 to 48 players. Each player has a mission. As a disciple, find and excommunicate the Pharisees. As a Pharisee, convince the disciples you’re innocent while secretly trying to stone them each night, one by one. Dozens of special roles are available to help both the disciples and Pharisees accomplish their missions.
Ages 12+ | 2-4 Players

25. Solomon’s Temple
Ages 7+ | 2 Players
Solomon’s Temple is a two-player game that takes a little over an hour to complete. The object of the game is to be the first player to complete the Temple and play Filling of the Holy of Holies. However, the game is not that simple. While you are trying to build the Temple, the Israelites continue to fall into Sin. Work must be stopped on the Temple in order to lead the Israelites back into the ways of the LORD.
To make matters worse, invasion forces from Babylon are pouring down from the north. They want to destroy the entire city of Jerusalem and wreck the Temple!
