I only rented this game as a joke for my son. But he started playing it and let me tell you something. He got mad. Very very mad. And then I asked him what would jesus do?. He responded by saying he would put down the controller and burn the game that steals money from strong christens. Must I go on.

"The Bible Game" could be regarded as a holy game show where you answer trivia about your Old Testament knowlegde. You compete against four other players in this ficitional game show called, "Do Unto Others" which plays very similary to the game show "Press Your Luck". To begin the game you must press the button to stop the moving light and underneath the selected space is one of four things: Testament Trivia, Challenge Game, Blessing Game or Wrath of God.
In Testament Trivia each player answers the Old Testament trivia and is awarded points based on how quickly they answered the question in relation to the other players. The difficulty level of the questions can be set up in the options menu on the title screen. In the blessing game God, everyone, or just one player gives points to another player. Sometimes a game called "Coat of Many Colors" is played by one player to give points to the person who is in last place
The funnest part of the game are the Challenge Games. These are Mario Party style mini-games except you play stories from the Old testament. Some of them include: Walls of Jericho, Aaron's Rod, The Red Sea, and Tower of Babel. In the Walls of Jericho game you ride a horse around the walls and avoid hot coals on the ground. In Aaron's Staff you use the rod to get rid of the snakes that come at you. In The Red Sea you jump over and avoid obstacles will running through the parted Red Sea. With the Tower of Babel you cut out portions of the building by forming rectangles with a colored cursor.
When you have possesion of the game board you can keep on choosing the space until the board is completed but one of the spaces is a space called the Wrath of God. What happens when you get this space is that you lose all your points and one of the seven plauges of Egypt falls upon the screen. The best strategy is to pass on control of the board to the next player before all the spaces are used up.
