What is Theology Of Games all about?
We’re here to give you reviews and news on the board gaming industry from a ministry point of view. Board games are getting huge out there; it’s not just Monopoly anymore. Sometimes the games contain subject matter that may be questionable or elements of culture that may not be “kosher” for all. We aren’t here to draw lines for anyone, but we’d like to clear up some of the gray areas and let you know through our reviews where some of the questionable content may lie in these games. If there’s nothing to say, so much the better! Plus we want you to know if the game is fun!
“As a follower of Christ and an avid gamer I’ve always found it somewhat tedious when selecting games. Why? Because let’s face it…when you delve into the world of dorkdom, topics relating to magic, wizards, and the supernatural often walk hand-in-hand out there. And that’s where the thrust of this blog lies: to help youth workers, parents, and students alike know what they’re getting into before they drop $50 on the latest and greatest board game.” – Jeremiah
Please know that we don’t have an agenda; we’re not going to try and “convert” you at the end of every review. “Ticket To Ride is a great game, but you know what the best ticket is? The one that gets you into heaven!” Lame.
You can expect weekly reviews, along with news and other articles mixed in throughout the week.
Thanks for reading, tell your friends, and enjoy!
