This is a highly interactive game where players seek to complete their sets by making inquiries from other players, similar to "Go Fish". However, once a set is completed, the player on the left of the collector is required to recite the Biblical story or pass which forfeits an opportunity to collect 10 points if told correctly. Unless you are already familiar with several Old Testament stories or eager to learn about them, this game is not for you.

In a game with 3 to 4 players, 9 cards are dealt out and the first player, the Requestor, asks another player if they have a card representing a particular story. There are 4 cards to each story, 15 stories in all.

If the answer is no, the Requestor keeps asking until someone says yes. Then relying on his memory of previous plays he will ask if that individual has a particular numbered card. If yes, that individual gives up the card to the Requestor and the Requestor continues asking for more new cards. When a full story set of 4 cards is collected, 10 points is awarded to the Requestor. However, if a request for a particular card is turned down, his turn ends and the Requestor draws and discards 1 card from either the draw deck or discard pile.

The fun begins when a complete story set is collected. The player on the left must recite the story correctly or pass the opportunity to their left. The storyteller gets 10 points if told correctly, otherwise the original Requestor reads the story out loud giving everyone the opportunity to learn the story and remember it the next time the game is played.

Game ends when someone runs out of cards. When that happens, the player who successfully sheds his cards gets an extra 10 points plus 1 point for every card still held by the other players.

First player who achieves 100 points wins.

Because this game heavily relies on reciting an Old Testament story correctly one should either be familiar with most of the stories or dive into a crash course by reviewing all 60 cards. On the other hand, this is an excellent introduction to Bible stories if you want to learn about them and don't mind being embarrassed when you tell a story incorrectly the first time. Eventually, you will learn from your mistakes and become a Biblical scholar in no time!
