We really enjoy a good board game in this house 🙂 As a mom I get even more excited when the game is a Bible based one. So I was super excited when I got was given the chance to review Wisdomantics by Kingdom Game Enterprises.
Wisdomantics–New King James Version (NKJV) is an interactive DVD board game using the Proverbs of Solomon. This game blends chance, knowledge and strategy to create a fun experience while you learn!
Wisdomantics utilizes 2 DVDs which contain 400 multiple-choice questions/proverbs. There is a built-in variable timer which automatically adjusts for 1st, 2nd and final attempt questions. The DVD will grade your response and King Solomon will quote the proverb when you answer correctly. The DVD will instruct players when to draw a specialty card which will enable them to navigate the game board. There are also strategy cards, which can skip or detain opponents, recover lost assets, and provide protection from adverse scenarios. To build Solomon’s temple, players receive colored tiles (gold, cypress and cedar) as they move about the game board. The first player to complete their Solomon’s temple scorecard (a temple is built) wins.
We played this with my husband and my 9 year old son. Our 5 year old periodically would try to play as well. This really is fun – minus it not being King James Version – my son especially had a great time playing this. He won the game in fact!
This is a very family friendly game, easy to play too. The multiple choice and filling in the blanks did get a bit old for me. But my oldest son really loved it and has been begging to play it again. My husband was expecting more to the game and so was a bit disappointed in the simplicity of it all. My husband thought it could use a bit of trivia; something to make things a bit more exciting (dice, Bible events that players could get into) A bit of trivia perhaps; to vary the levels of playing in the game maybe. It might have been nice too for the game to mark off the questions that have been completed in each game. My oldest liked to jump around and so since we did not keep track of questions, here and there we hit a repeat. Of course with 400 questions, how often are we really going to get a repeat offender? lol
All in all though this was a very fun game and we do look forward to playing this again in the future. Especially as our children get older I can see this being one that is a regular in this house!
Want to have some fun while gaining great wisdom from King Solomon himself?
