Review of a New Game - Wisdomantics
Hey Supporters, remember last year when I challenged you to read a chapter of Proverbs each day for a year? Well if you did (and even if you didn’t), I have the perfect game for you: Wisdomantics. Wisdomantics combines the competitiveness / game strategy of Monopoly, King Solomon-focused Bible trivia, and opportunities for authenticity and relationship-building.
Specifically, Wisdomantics–New King James Version (NKJV) is an interactive DVD board game for players of various faiths who desire to gain the vast wisdom of King Solomon. Wisdomantics-NKJV utilizes the proverbs of Solomon and blends chance, knowledge and strategy to create a fun experience while you learn! The game’s intent is to bring individuals together to learn how to cope with numerous situations in a fun and relaxed environment. Inside the box you’ll find 2 interactive DVDs with 400 questions, score cards, blessing cards, and more!
In order to play this game, you have to have a dvd player. Once setup, you select one of 400 questions. Once the question is selected, the player has 30 seconds to read the question, answers, choose the answer, and click their guess. Since the questions are not read out loud, you will need to read quickly in order to be able to answer the question before time is up. If you pick the correct answer, you’ll see the King Solomon (who reads the verse out loud) and be instructed to take a card. If you do not get it right the first time, there are two more chances to get the question right.
The goal of the game is to collect three different color tiles in order to build Solomon’s temple. There are no dice in this game, instead you move around to board with advancement cards. The spaces on the board allow you to gather the tiles you need to build the temple. In addition, there are “Praise Report” “Detention Chambers” and “Prayer Request.”
To say this game is overwhelming initially will be an understatement. However, there is a youtube video that breaks down how to play and once you get the hang of it, it is quite fun. In addition, you can play this game with just the DVD as sort of like Trivia Pursuit. If you play the game like Trivia Pursuit, you can play with teams.
