Games for JW Families and Children Raised in the Truth

If you’re looking for inexpensive entertainment that has benefits far beyond just keeping kids busy, look no further than the humble board game. Unlike video games, board games allow families to connect with each other and foster traits of strong families like positive communication and commitment to each other. Communicating verbally, sharing, waiting, taking turns, and enjoying interaction with others are just a few of the important social skills that can be learned through games.

Ministry Ideaz offers a number of products to help families learn about the Truth together, including the following three games:

House to House

The House2House board game helps children learn Bible scriptures in a fun yet effective way. To play, each individual must move a pawn around the board to explore the spaces of uncovered territories, earning points by answering questions related to the Bible and promoting the Truth.

Tag On Words

Another board game, Tag On Words is similar in play to Scrabble, but players can only score using words from the Bible. Extra points are earned for words from Bible books, characters, lands, utterances, and genealogies of people referenced in the book.

Accurate Knowledge

This Bible trivia game is played on the computer, and can be used alone or with family members. Trivia questions may fall under any of seven categories, including Bible and scripture, names, events and facts, and Jesus’s life and ministry.

Benefits of Board Games

From learning new skills to spending quality time with family, board games come with many benefits. Many families are into technological games played on the Wii or Xbox, but those games really don't bring the family closer together the same way board games are able to. Their focus is on the screen, whereas in board games, their focus is usually on each other. More communication goes on in board games as well in order to accomplish whatever the objective is. Playing board games with your kids is a perfect way to spend time together — and build learning skills at the same time.


  1. We use the Game of Life board game. Instead of doing the regular Game, every time we move and make a decision, we go to the Bible. This helps to instill in my boys to continually look to Jehovah and key him direct their steps.

  2. Bring back the Tree of Knowledge :-)
