The following is a review (and giveaway!) of the Wisdomantics game, a FlyBy Promotions BOARD GAME Outreach.
As a little girl, each time I asked my Grandmother what she wanted, whether it was for her birthday, Christmas, or another occasion, she would reply "I want the wisdom of Solomon." I can remember one time suggesting slippers as an alternative; I certainly couldn't give her wisdom.
While we can't give our children wisdom, we can guide them to search the Scriptures and help them apply knowledge from lessons they learn. Wisdomantics is a new type of game that combines the familiarity of a traditional style board game with components using our television or computer, DVD player, and remote control.
Two to four players play the game Wisdomantics.
Our tv is stuck in widescreen, so the arrows didn't line up with the questions. I was the only one confused by this.
After correctly answering a question (multiple choice fill in the blanks for verses related to wisdom), the correct verse is displayed and read to us. Joseph was the first to notice that on either screen the chapter and verse was displayed, but not the book the verses were from.
My son read the entire two page instructions enclosed, but was confused. The DVD summarizes rules in 4 steps on one screen, which was easy to understand. A revised shorter version of the instructions have recently been shared with us.
There are a few challenges built into the game. The leading player may end up in the "detention chambers" even though they have all the correct answers. Someone who has memorized Scripture has a natural advantage as answers are based on verses.
There are additional highlights, too. Praying for each other is even built into the game, so is sharing praise reports. A correct answer is followed by a shout of "hallelujah!" This one of a kind game even provides opportunities for authenticity and relationship-building.
Learning the wisdom of King Solomon is powerful AND fun!
