Yes: we are very sarcastic & snarky.
But also spiritual.
It all started playing a game of Cards Against Humanity when someone’s “horrible” card pairing was vaguely biblical and deeply spiritual.
One of us said, “imagine if this entire game was based completely on passages from the Bible?”
Hours later a midnight phone call began A Game For Good Christians, but it truly goes back further than this.
This game was developed through years of many irreverent and deeply theological conversations; Bible studies, seminary classes, sermons, readings and reflections are at the root of this game, as is deep exploration of the Bible.
The cards capture stories, characters, and statements from the Bible. Some familiar and comforting, others frightening and confusing. Those who have been uncomfortable playing this game have had the most trouble with Canon Cards which quote directly from the Bible without any clever commentary from us.
The Bible, like humanity, is messy because it contains the messy relationship between the divine and humanity: a relationship which is humorous and horrifying. Our game embraces this dissonance. We ask you to do the same.
We are Christians, designers, teachers, preachers, parents, artists, seminary graduates, male and female, Jew and Gentile, and no respecters of persons.
