Whole Armor of God

Disclaimer: This game was designed by Mike Drysdale, me.

Whole Armor of God is a new card game for kids that will be available this Fall from Covenant Communications. For 2 to 4 players, the object of the game is to be the first to "put on" all 6 pieces of the Armor of God. Each piece of armor requires a certain number of "faith points" before it can be collected. Faith in Action cards are played until the total faith points equals the number required for that piece of armor. But watch out for the Fiery Darts, they will affect your Faith in Action!

As players collect the Armor of God cards they are able to lay them out on the table in front of them, in the end creating a completed person completed clothed in the Whole Armor of God!

This will be a great game for kids to play with their parents. It will also provide a great game/activity that can be included in a Family Home Evening! We will soon post a Family Home Evening guide that includes using the game to help kids learn more about the Armor of God and how they can arm themselves!

We just bought the game and are so excited to play, but there were no instructions, not sure exactly how to play. Any help would be great!

The best way to get a rules document would be to email Covenant Communications and ask for one. They didn't want me to post the rules document online.

We will make a how to play video in the next couple days and post it. That way everyone will know how to play, without needing the rules document. It's fairly simple to play.

I apologize for taking so long with it. It can be found on YouTube:
