  1. Mason - Interesting! I'd never heard of this game show. It sounds like a fun way to get to know the Bible.

    1. Margot, it's a fun game to watch and quite interesting how the use the information from the Bible.

  2. now that is one NOT for little Dezzy :)

  3. That one IS for me though. Friends had brought a Bible game over to play recently - it wasn't this one, but we discovered it wasn't as difficult as we thought it would be and lots of fun. I would love to play this one.

    1. Diane, I haven't tried any Bible board games but they would be fun. I've laughed (and learned) each time I've watched this show.

  4. I don't have cable so haven't seen this, but sounds like a fun show. People have many misconceptions. I remember Gwyneth Paltrow saying she named her daughter Apple because it was in the bible (Garden of Eden). The bible actually says fruit, not apple, and apples don't grow in the region thought to be where the Garden of Eden was located.

    1. Ann, I hate to admit it but I guess I'd be like Gwyneth too and think Apple was in the Bible. But, once you stop and think you remember it's not. I didn't realize apples didn't grow in that region. How interesting. Wonder what type of fruit it was.

  5. I love challenges like this. One about the Bible would be ideal. I'm no longer up on my Bible facts, but you end up learning so much!!!

    1. Kimberly, this is a fun challenge and as you mentioned, you do learn so much playing.

  6. I was unaware of this challenge which sounds unique. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com
