We love board games at our house, so when I was given the opportunity to review Wisdomantics, an Interactive DVD board game, I was super excited.
About the Game:
For 2-4 players, ages 12+
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!
How We Used It and My Thoughts:
The 3 older girls and I sat down to play this. Sassy wanted to play as well, but I knew with a recommended age of 12+, there was no way she would be able to play. Actually all of the girls are under 12, but I wasn't as concerned about Ballerina being able to handle it since she is a fount of Bible knowledge. Soccer Girl and Little Red wanted to give it try, so I figured why not.
First things first, I had to read through the directions. (I'm a little OCD about that. LOL) The rules that came with the game are a little wordy and could be overwhelming, but they have come out with a condensed version of the rules since then.
Then I popped in the DVD, set up the game, and settled in for an evening of fun. In spite of the wordy directions, the game was fairly simple to play. The girls and I found several features that we really liked:
- The image of King Solomon shouting, "Hallelujah!" every time we got an answer correct the first time.
- The question is read aloud with the blanks filled in after the question is answered correctly. That way the rest of us got to see what the Proverb actually says.
- We got up to 3 chances to answer the questions. If you miss it on the first attempt, you get another 2 chances. You don't get the opportunity to move spaces or get as many tiles for Solomon's Temple, but you get something.
- The Solomon's Temple cards are colorful and fun.
We really enjoyed playing Wisdomantics. Some of the questions were a little difficult for the younger girls, but I think we'll be fine playing it in teams from now on.
