MOH: Passages of the Prophets

This might sound really nerdy to y’all, but I ordered a new board game to supplement our history lessons. It’s called Passages of the Prophets.

I was a little nervous that it wouldn’t be a very high quality game (because it almost sounded homemade when I ordered it), but I was pleasantly surprised by the nice packaging and the durability of the game board, cards, and pieces.

So, basically the game is like Chutes and Ladders. But an added component is that any time you land on a Prophet square, you have to answer a question off a Prophet card. If you get it right, you get to take an extra turn. If not, the game moves on to the next player.

Here’s a sample question. We’ll see if any of you are brushed up on your prophets! 🙂 (And hey, no cheating. Yes, Google is considered cheating!)

“How was the prophet Zephaniah related to King Hezekiah?”

Ready…GO!

  1. I have no idea, but I’m going with cousin.

  2. Elyse says: Brother

    Zachary says: Cousin

    I say: Who knows?

  3. I think he was a grandson of Hezekiah…or a great grandson.

  4. I don’t know either… will have to google or search for it in my ipad bible… 🙂

  5. Did you find it difficult picking out a game your kids could all participate in and yet enjoy? You have such a range of ages to deal with! And at what age did the kiddos start playing games? (legit playing, now. Bristol can already hold her own in the stealing-pieces department)

    • Hmm, Ava and Jaden don’t sit still much for games, if they’re very complex at all. And even less complex games are difficult as far as rule-following goes for their ages. When we played this one as a family, Jaden sat with Luke and Ava sat with me and we were “teams.” Otherwise it would not have worked.

      I’m looking forward to being able to have family game nights with games that Luke and I enjoy! (Chutes and Ladders = not my favorite!) Someday our kids will love to play Settlers of Catan. 🙂

      • Oh, oops, I forgot to answer part of your question. I’d say kindergarten is about the age when our kiddos started really playing the games according to the rules (and enjoying themselves enough to stick with it through the end of the game).

      • I think “Chutes and Ladders” is more my speed. I do, however, remember Caleb helping me with a puzzle and doing a GREAT job! Maybe I should stick to “fixing things” by putting puzzles together.
