Kings of Isreal 

 

Family Friendly Gaming started on video games, and grew into other areas. One of those was board games. We do not review a lot of board games. In fact we are selective on what we let into Family Friendly Gaming Nation. When we were contacted by Funhill Games I knew we had to work on this product.

Kings of Isreal is a board game that can teach us the historical kings of Isreal. Hence the name of the game. We can also learn about the various cities of ancient Isreal. There are also plenty of cards that teach Bible versus in Kings of Isreal. In fact in some ways Kings of Isreal feels more like a card game. More on that later.

Kings of Isreal is the most difficult board game I have ever played. In fact the instructions explain that is how it is designed. Which brings me to an important reality. Families can modify the rules however they want in any board game. That is something much more difficult to do in video games. At least without an enhancement device.

Remember I mentioned Kings of Isreal feels more like a card game? There are ability cards, blessing cards, location cards, resource cards, and sin & punishment cards. The layers of complexity with having so many different cards mixing in with the tokens is intense. It could also be intimidating to some families.

Kings of Isreal comes with one map of Isreal game board, four prophet tokens, one black false prophet token, one purple king timeline token, six yellow idol tokens, nine white altar tokens, twenty-seven black sin cubes, three destruction cubes, four player guides, one starting player card, eight ability cards, thirty blessing cards, forty location cards, thirty-four resource cards, thirty sin & punishment cards. Quite a bit to keep track of.

Another reason Kings of Isreal feels like a card game is it has four phases. There is the King's Godliness Phase, Sin Increase Phase, Prophets Work Phase, and End of Round Phase. We had to keep going back to the instructions to find what all we could do in each of the phases.

There are some cool and neat ideas in Kings of Isreal for families. Games can take a long time, so they might not be finished in one small group session. Kings of Isreal can be used for learning and fellowship purposes. I am thankful we were provided an opportunity to play and review Kings of Isreal.
