Years ago, when my older children were younger, I had a Pilgrim's progress Game. It had colored plastic game pieces with a burden that clicked off when you got to the cross. There were dice to roll to get out of some of the traps. We loved the game so much it fell apart. I bought this one for my younger children and I was disappointed because it is more cartoon-y and the names of things are modernized; i.e. the interpreter's house=the explainer's house; it makes it harder to fit the game to the real story...also, nobody goes to hell. It seems sort of 'dumbed down'. However, it is better than nothing and I do not exactly feel that I wasted my money. My children (6 and 9), after all enjoy playing it.
