WISDOMANTICS: AN INTERACTIVE DVD BOARD GAME (TV Plug & Play) Review

Disclaimer: This post was sponsored by FlyBy Blog Promotions. All opinions are my own. I received a free copy of the game for participation.




Wisdomantics–New King James Version (NKJV) (From Media Kit)
is an interactive DVD board game for players of various faiths who desire to gain the vast wisdom of King Solomon. Wisdomantics-NKJV utilizes the proverbs of Solomon and blends chance, knowledge and strategy to create a fun experience while you learn! We are currently developing Wisdomantics-New International Version (NIV), a variation of the original game. This version of the Holy Bible is considered by some to be more mainstream and will allow us to reach a broader scope of consumers. The game’s intent is to bring individuals together to learn how to cope with numerous situations in a fun and relaxed environment.

Wisdomantics utilizes 2 DVDs which contain 400 multiple-choice questions/proverbs. There is a built-in variable timer which automatically adjusts for 1st, 2nd and final attempt questions. The DVD will grade your response and King Solomon will quote the proverb when you answer correctly.
Finally, the DVD will instruct players when to draw a specialty card which will enable them to navigate the game board.

The game board illustrations chronicle Solomon’s life! They begin with his most notable acts and achievements and end with a divided kingdom through disobedience and rebellion. Hear King Solomon quote his wise biblical truths. The audio-visual element is a huge plus and adds greater depth to the game. Players may also strategize with specialty cards, which can skip or detain opponents, recover lost assets, and provide protection from adverse scenarios. To replicate Solomon’s temple, players receive colored tiles (gold, cypress and cedar) as they navigate the game board. The first player to complete their Solomon’s temple scorecard wins!

My Review

The Good

Awesome game for the whole family and friends
This game has blessing cards!
You can play the game with the DVD and Board or with just the DVD's

The Not So Good

The game is not recommended for kids under 12
Blessing cards do contain actual blessings

Unfortunately, I could not play this game with my kids because my kids are 7 and 9 yrs old and I am a single parent. While the board game portion of the game was easy for my kids, the questions were a little advance for their age. Nevertheless, the game reminds me of a combination of Monopoly, Bingo & Taboo because it contains elements from each game.The option to play the game using only the DVD's was a good idea. My only let down was the blessing cards because I wanted each card to have a reward attached to it.  However, the Achievement cards do offer rewards and obstacles that help determine if you will win or lose the game. Overall, it is a good board game that I can play with friends and my kids when they get older.
