This is a board game for 2 to 4 players or teams. Children learn names used for Jesus in the book of John as they move through the chapters of John and collect cards depicting these titles.
Materials Needed:


  1. Print the game board and the spinner on card stock or heavy paper.
  2. For 2 players or teams, print 1 sheet of game cards on card stock or heavy paper; for more players or teams, print 2 copies. Cut apart the cards. (picture 1)
  3. Assemble the spinner using the safety pin and the brad. You may need to experiment with sizes to find a combination that allows the spinner to spin freely. (picture 2)

Playing the Game:

  1. 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.
  2. Each player or team places a marker on the board on any square that does not contain a picture. (picture 3)
  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.
  4. If you land on a picture, take a card that matches the picture on the square, if you don’t already have one.
  5. If you land on a picture of Jesus, take any card that you don’t already have.
  6. 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.
