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.

 

Be Warned:

This game is NOT another Bible version of Apples to Apples.

For direct access to our card content visit the Canon and read our Card Talks or click on the link below to see some cards.

 

Are you smug, godless heathens who hate our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and are emissaries of the Antichrist, the Beast, and the Whore of Babylon?

Uhm, no. The purpose of the game is NOT to mock the Bible. You might be offended by some of the cards. Good. We want you to figure out why you’re offended, especially if/when the card is a direct quote from the Bible, while going back to the Text.

Will I be offended by this Game?

Maybe. As we list on the box, this game contains Sexual Content, Blood and Gore, Crude Humor, Drug References, Intense Violence, Sexual Violence, Extreme Violence, Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol, Strong Language, Strong Sexual content … and God. There are a plethora of things in this game that may piss you off.

But don't take our word for it. Read what other people have said about us.

 

How well do I need to know the Bible to play this game?

Not very. You don’t need to know the Bible intimately to enjoy the game: people with all levels of biblical exposure have fun playing the game. At the bottom of each Canon Card, we provide the relevant passage of Scripture for reference and fighting.

 

Will God send me to hell for playing this game?

Your God sucks if He/She/It does. Besides, of all the things you’ve done, do you really think this will be the straw that breaks The Camel’s back?
