    I got this for review for my 3 year old a while back. He's really enjoyed it the few times we have played it and likes the bright colors that are on the front and back. It's been cool teaching him how to match the actual numbers or the number of pictures on one side. Plus there is even a Bible Storybook included, which we have read afterwards and enjoyed. I give this game 5 out of 5 stars! Makes a great family game!

    Bible Dominoes

    by Juliet David; Illustrated by Jo Parr

    These fun and cheerful-toned Bible dominoes are the perfect plaything for young children! Specifically for kids aged three to seven years, this game will delight small minds and hearts. The dominoes are large, perfect for tiny hands to grasp and the graphics are colorful and appealing to young minds.

    Produced by Candle Books, this game is new and I'm sure will quickly become popular. The game pieces (dominoes) are constructed of sturdy cardboard and will be able to withstand time after time of enthusiastic play.

    There are 28 dominoes, each measuring 3 inches by 6 inches. The rules are basic domino game rules except of course this game features pictures as well as numbers. Some of the pictures included are well-known and loved Bible characters which will encourage your child to talk about Bible stories.

    I received this game from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Game that can grow with your child

    Bible Dominoes provides a good introduction to the game of dominoes. The 28 dominoes are thick cardboard with colorful graphics that reinforce number recognition from zero to six. For the number 6, children will see a domino with a numeral six, another with the word "six" and another with a picture of six things. Everything related to six will be purple. Each number is assigned it's own color so children need only know their colors to be able to play. Bible Dominoes will help reinforce how numerals, written words and objects all relate to one another.

    The dominoes are 3"x 6" so you'll need a good sized surface to play the game. Game can be played with 2-4 players and it is recommended for ages 3 and up. Players pick a certain number of dominoes (based on the number playing) and hold the dominoes in their hand. Remaining dominoes get stacked in a pile. Youngest child lays down any card and next person can build on either side of that card. If they do not have a card with a matching color/number, they select a card from the pile and play moves to next person. The rules are simple and are conveniently written on the bottom of the box which means you won't be misplacing them. For younger children, the game could be played with a player's hand laid out in front of them and still be fun.

    I think the dominoes could also be a fun activity for solo play. Parent could instruct child to line up all the sides of dominoes with a particular number. Children could be quizzed on selecting dominoes of a certain color. Even just matching up all the dominoes into one long line could be a fun activity for a single child.

    This game was tried out by my 12, 10 and 8 year olds and they all enjoyed it. I later played with just my 12 year old and we incorporated some rules from traditional dominoes: starting play with a double of a certain number, being able to lay down a card that was drawn, and being able to play a second card when using a double in the middle of the game.

    Included with the game is a booklet of 10 stories from the Bible: 5 from the Old Testament and 5 from the New Testament. The pictures on the dominoes match the illustrations in the Bible Story booklet. These are a very condensed form (5-6 sentences). One thing that may be a bit confusing is that there may be one person in the Bible story and multiple images of that person on the domino (e.g. domino with Noah has two images of Noah). When my 12 year old and I had completed our game, we went through and tried to match up all the tiles that corresponded with each Bible Story. This would be a good way to help introduce sorting skills to younger children. Dominoes could also be used to review the Bible stories by having child select a domino and tell what story it came from.

    The dominoes could be used as a story telling prompt. Dominoes could be laid face down and child picks up a domino and starts a story. Next child picks up another and continues the story and children continue taking turns and adding to the story. Older children could do the same activity (as a group or solo) but also write down the story as they go along.

    For some math reinforcement, you could have a child compare a picture from the book and the domino and have them either find a total number of that image or have them find the difference in number between book and domino. Or have children pick a domino and add the two sides of the domino. For older children you could have them pick multiple dominoes and add them all together. Or have a child multiply the numbers on both sides of the domino.

    While I think this game has some fun potential for a variety of ages and uses, there are a few things I thing could be improved. I wish the Bible Story book were more durable than just a stapled booklet. Probably not something that will withstand rough treatment from children. I was also a little disappointed by the box design. I managed to rip the lid while trying to remove the stack of dominoes from the box. Users will want to take some care with the box (or just store them in another container). I will most likely just cut the cover and rules off the box and store the set in a zipper top bag.

    This is a great way to introduce younger children to game playing. The game can be used to help reinforce color recognition, turn taking and can also be used for Bible, language and math activities for a variety of ages.
