Tired of all those games that use the Theory of Evolution as their inspiration? Loooking for a game that takes its theme from "Creation Science"?

Well, there don't seem to be any.

So instead, I present this list of games thematically inspired by the Book of Genesis (All Bible quotes from the King James Version)

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

The name of this game is the German transliteration of the Hebrew phrase translated above as "without form and void"

Okay, it's only related tangentially, but what's a Geeklist these days if it doesn't include this game?

(Actually, I really wanted to include a Cain & Abel game, but there don't seem to be any. Maybe Hasbro should produce "Clue: Garden of Eden Edition" ["Cain...in the field...with the rock"]}"

Gen 6:13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
Gen 6:14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

Several choices for Noah's Ark games. All are aimed at children. So I chose the Knizia one.
