Abstract

An educational game of chance based primarily on the Biblical books of Leviticus and Numbers. The game includes a rectangular board with a continuous path around the perimeter. A central area is comprised of a representation of Solomon's Temple and Courtyard. The game includes an Oracle consisting of two spinners, a plurality of sacrificial animal, grain and wine cards, Revelation and Abomination cards, money, A Table of Sacrifices, a three dimensional Altar, and an instruction manual with tables and explanations for the various events of the game. Through the course of the game, events occur which call for specific types of sacrifices or other rituals. Sacrifices are purchased and then offered. Eventually, a sacrifice is not accepted and the player is consumed by strange fire. The last player remaining is the winner.
