Playing the Game:
- Sort the cards according to picture, and place each pile of cards face up on the table near the matching square on the game board.
- Each player or team places a marker on the board on any square that does not contain a picture. (picture 3)
- When it is your turn, spin the spinner. Move counter-clockwise (in the order of the chapter numbers) the number of spaces shown by the spinner.
- If you land on a picture, take a card that matches the picture on the square, if you don’t already have one.
- If you land on a picture of Jesus, take any card that you don’t already have.
- Keep moving around and around the board until you collect all six pictures. You do not have to reach a certain square on the board to win.
