SDG Games

SDG Games is a business created within SDG Strategy LLC. Our purpose is to create educational games for the glory of God.

We’ve just released our second card game, Prophets & Kings. It is a set (or meld) building game (think Rummy or Conasta) . Specifically you are trying to build sets of cards with an Old Testament prophet and the kings whose reigns he prophesied during, or an Old Testament king and the prophets who prophesied during his reign. The game is easy to learn and helps players learn about the prophets and kings in the Bible.

We have also just released our first mobile/computer game, WordWords. WordWords was inspired by Wordle, and like other Wordle-inspired games, it involves trying to guess 5-letter words. Each WordWords puzzle is associated with a specific book of the Bible and the word you are searching for appears in that book. To be beginner-friendly, and to help all of us learn more of the words in the Bible, a list of all of the 5-letter words in that book is provided, so WordWords is also a bit of a search game, looking for words that match a pattern. A few other improvements have been introduced to make WordWords an inviting game for those that love the Bible. Be patient, it can take a few seconds to load a new game.

Illuminate is our first card game. It is a trick taking game (think Spades or Bridge), but with a couple of twists that keep your brain working. The Illuminate card deck is beautifully decorated with artwork from the Book of Kells. The Illuminate deck replaces the traditional four suits (Spades, Hearts, Clubs, and Diamonds) with the four Biblical gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John). This deck can be used for playing other common card games, but with the challenging twists enabled by the deck.

Our first board game is called Journeys with Jesus.  It is the first in a series of route building games (in some ways similar to the Ticket to Ride or 10 Days games) specifically intended to teach Biblical geography.
