If you’re looking for a way to liven up your Bible Time or a great family Christmas present, take a look at these new games from Bible Games Central. In addition to your home, other great places to play these games would be in Sunday School or at a homeschool co-op!
Games from Bible Games Central
We recently received these four games from Bible Games Central to try out in our home so we could effectively and honestly review it here.
We received 2 card games called Parable Parade and Bible Memory Game.
And, we received two Bingo games called Bible Bingo and Christmas Bingo & Memory Card Game.
Learn more about each individual game below!

In this exciting game, players must collect complete sets of Parable Cards. There are four different cards for each parable.
The 12 parables included are:
- The Sower
- The Hidden Treasure
- The Lost Sheep
- The Lost Coin
- The Prodigal Son
- The Good Samaritan
- The Unmerciful Servant
- The Pharisee and the Tax Collector
- The Talents
- The Rich Fool
- The Wise and Foolish Builders
- The Ten Virgins
So, this is an awesome way to learn about or review these parables of Jesus!
On each player’s turn, he or she can draw as many cards as they like, but be careful.
If you draw an Oopsie! Card, your turn ends! Kingdom cards are like bonus cards, though, and can help you create your full parable card set.
Will you be bold and fearless? Or will you be conservative and cautious?
Collect the Cards. Complete the Story. Capture the Point.
I love how the card game also includes these cards in the photo below of the summaries and explanations of each parable.

Bible Memory Game
Each Bible Memory Game set contains two decks of 66 cards each that are beautifully illustrated to reflect the 66 books of the Bible. The back of each card set is a different color so you can separate them.
There are several ways to use these cards.
- Play Memory, where you lay all cards face down and take turns turning a card of each color over trying to find the match.
- Play a shorter Memory game by using less than all the 132 cards. For example, just use the Old Testament cards, or just use the Minor Prophet cards. A color bar at the bottom of each card indicates which section of the Bible it belongs to.
- Use the cards to practice putting the books of the Bible in order. You can see my son doing that below.
- Since there are two full sets of cards, you can have two kids (or two teams) race to see who can put the books of the Bible in order quickest.
Books of the Old Testament in order and separated by section of the Bible:
This versatile Bible Memory Game can be as challenging or easy as you want it to be!
Bible Bingo is a simple and fun game that also helps players become more familiar with the Bible. It contains the exact same cards as the Bible Memory game, except that it says “Bible Bingo” on it and the backs are a different color–so you won’t get the cards mixed up!
The Bingo cards you find in this game are specially designed to correspond to how the Bible is organized.
They are divided into distinct, colored sections that match the sections of the Bible. There are 24 different Bingo cards, but the backs are different, so there are actually 48 different ones.
I love how you can have 24 players playing all at once!
Bible Bingo also comes with a 16-Page Full-Color Quick Guide that gives an overview of the Books and Sections of the Bible. Scroll to the bottom of this page to download a pdf version of it!
Christmas Bingo & Memory Card Game
This festive game set is adorned with 24 colorful illustrations of the nativity scene, baby Jesus, the wise men, a wreath, a toy, Christmas trees, gingerbread houses, and more!
My daughter really enjoyed this game because she’s so ready for Christmas!
Not only can you play the game like Bingo, but since there are two sets of cards included, you can play Memory as well!
The Christmas Bingo game is conveniently packaged with 24 unique, double-sided Christmas Bingo Cards and 400 plastic Bingo chips, so this game requires no further preparation. Just open it up and play, and my kids did just that!
Additional information for all of these games can be found at Bible Games Central.
