    I'm sure it was probably from Stoops. Sort of like a Trivial Pursuit of WT doctrine. Guess this Bible character from these clues to advance your little man, or maybe it was to collect fruits of the spirit on the big tree on the board, hard to remember.

    Whew, those were some wild Friday nights! Good times . . .

    Happy Bday, Penny. I recall seeing the game in the Stoops catalogues, never played it though.

    I vaguely remember the game pennycandy. I enjoyed some of the games from Stoops; always did enjoy a good Bible question game in a fun group.

    But then I love Trivial Pursuit too!

    Happy Birthday, Pennycandy! Hope you had fun!

    Yes.............we had it. Not a good game as I recall. We were disappointed in it.

    I recall it as a lame attempt at combining Trivial pursuit (fundamentalist christian zealot edition), Monopoly, and Candyland.

    Some lame bastard would always haul the thing out at gatherings so that people could try to pick up other singles by wowing them with their apparent biblical knowledge. My brother and I would chuck the board, etc. and just quiz on the question cards. Of course we also did the same with Trivial Pursuit. Actually, I ended up on our school's "Quiz Bowl" team. Hey, we took second at the state championships.

    Heh, I can imagine some unsuspecting soul thinking it has something to do with the Kabbalah and then seeing it going "... what is this crap?"
