Top 55 Bible game that's fun for ONE - or more
This game is a great way to test your knowledge of the Top 55 in a fun way. As with other solitaire games and standard playing cards, the random placement of the cards plays a role. So don't feel bad if you fail to finish.
This linking game uses nine stacks of cards with the top card shown. The player (or team) tries to link two of the top cards. (Three-fold links are not allowed.) For instance, if the cards for Adam and Abraham are shown, they could be linking because they are both in Genesis. The two linked cards are removed and the cards below them are revealed. The goal is to link and remove as many cards as possible in less than ten minutes.
FORBIDDEN CARD LINKS
Certain links are not allowed because they are too simple. For instance, no player should link cards by saying, "They are both men." In addition, players, other than beginners, should not be allowed to link cards by saying, "They are both kings / prophets." More detailed links, such as "They were both Gentile kings." are ok.
HELPFUL CARD LINKS
"They are both in Genesis / Samuel / Esther." "They are both in the Gospels / the New Testament / Hebrews chapter 11." "They were both active during the Babylonian captivity." "They were both military leaders." "They are both Gentiles / women."
UNCLEAR CARD LINKS
Sometimes the player is not clear on the correctness of a link. For instance, he may not know for sure if a certain king is in the line of the Messiah or not. In this case, the link is to be accepted but check later. The game should not be stopped because of an uncertainty.
