New Games!

So I went a little off the rails with my Women in the Bible series. Remember how I had completed a deck of playing cards featuring women mentioned in the Old Testament? Then remember how I had my son translate those cards so I could make a Spanish deck? Then I made a memory game and translated it too? Well, now I have two more games and a third in the works.

Claudia, my artist friend, did NOT disappoint with additional illustrations. Take a look at these:

Women of the Old Testament Matching Game provides hours of educational fun for the entire family. Each full-color card provides information about one of 24 extraordinary women mentioned in the Old Testament. Two levels of difficulty make it the perfect game for all ages. Also available in Spanish: El Juego de Emparejar Las Mujeres del Antiguo Testamento and in PDF format from Teachers Pay Teachers.

Who Was I? Women of the Old Testament Guessing Game is a fun way to review your bible studies. Each full-color card has information about one of 37 women mentioned in the Old Testament. The scriptural footnote gives you an opportunity to learn more about each woman before the next game. Also available in Spanish: ¿Quién era yo? El Juego de Adivinar–Las Mujeres del Antiguo Testamento and in PDF format from Teachers Pay Teachers.

The next game is a trivia game, but as there are 140 cards, it’s taking some time to format. I finished the English version, but am waiting on my son’s translations to get the Spanish done.  Stay tuned for another update next month on that. In the meantime, I made a set of seven (plus a free sample) games designed to work with Zoom. Yep! Women of the Old Testament Trivia Game for Zoom is available for download from TPT as individual games or bundled. I’m planning on another series of Zoom games in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned!

I’m also going to expand the Bingo games with more unique boards for larger groups of players. Right now, the free versions have only 3 different boards. Additionally, I’ll be making worksheets for teachers on the topic of women in the Old Testament. Making curriculum is what I do best!

Egad! I seem to have become a little obsessed with this project, not even knowing it if will be profitable. However, it is an activity I can do from home, which I plan on hibernating in a bit longer even though our state has turned “green” on the risk level. I mean, look what happened in India! Otherwise, it’s business as usual on the ol’ Flores ranchito.
