    I don't even know what to say about this game, OTWO. Are they serious? Maybe they'll recall the game when in a year or two WT changes a major teaching or belief.

    Remember those JW flashcards from decades ago?

    I seem to remember someone having a similar kind of board game years ago. It was more homemade and crude but was about going house to house.

    At that time, many board games were somewhat looked down on by dubs in our area. Even Monopoly. It promoted greed and running other people out of business. That was un-Christian. Risk was the same as Chess, a war game. Any kind of card game that involved "betting", even when it was toothpicks or plastic fake chips, was out (though I heard about Bethel brothers saving pennies and having all night penny poker games, so we started doing the same).

    I remember people trying to come up with Bible games to replace all the "worldly" games. I always thought it would have been interesting to have some kind of Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament) based game. Murder, genocide, conquests, rape, incest... now that's a game for true Christians...sure beats Monopoly.

    Just.......wow. What an utterly depressing boardgame.

    A comment from one of the posters on the Facebook page:

    Looks interesting. The box says it is for 13+. Why is that when you can get baptised at 10 or 12 years old?

    Inquiring minds wanna know...

    To undercover: My family felt the same way about "worldly" games. The faces and suits of cards was even considered bad(I can't remember why). Your Idea about a game

    about the old Testament is hilarious.
