Christian board games offer a fun way to learn about the Bible. Some Christian games take the design of a regular game and add to it a Christian theme. Other games, meanwhile, are completely original.
List of Christian-Themed Board Games
The Journeys of Paul
The Journeys of Paul game allows players to experience the ministry of Paul. Playing the role of a missionary in the Roman Empire, players travel throughout the eastern Mediterranean.

Bibleopoly is an example of a Christian board game that is based on a regular board game. Instead of buying New York properties, players travel through Biblical themes such as meditation and community celebration. To win the game, players must help fellow players, make offerings and do community service. Instead of chance cards, the faith cards can alter the game. In addition, instead of going to jail, players will lose several turns if they land on the "go meditate" square. Bibleopoly is designed for 2-6 players, ages eight and up.
The New Teen Choices Game
Teen Choices is a game that is ideal for church youth groups.
