#Wisdomantics Board Game/Interactive DVD Review & Giveaway


We are a family that loves playing board and card games, so I was delighted when FlyBy asked if I’d like to try a new faith based board game that also comes with interactive DVD’s. One thing that stood out to me about Wisdomantics is that players of various faiths can play and enjoy it.  



About the game: For 2-4 players, ages 12+


Wisdomantics board game


Wisdomantics–New King James Version (NKJV) is an interactive DVD board game for players of various faiths who desire to gain the vast wisdom of King Solomon. Wisdomantics-NKJV utilizes the proverbs of Solomon and blends chance, knowledge and strategy to create a fun experience while you learn! 

The game’s intent is to bring individuals together to learn how to cope with numerous situations in a fun and relaxed environment. Inside the box you’ll find 2 interactive DVDs with 400 questions, score cards, blessing cards, and more!



First we set up the board game:

Then we read the instructions and popped in a video. We actually started with disc two on accident, but it didn’t make a difference. The DVD’s are there to help make the game fun and more interactive. 


Start Wisdomantics DVD


After you start the DVD, you’ll be given questions like this:


question on King Solomon


You are timed, so be prepared to pay attention. If you don’t answer in the allotted 25-30 seconds, you get a wrong answer. Thankfully, my daughters seem to know the book of King Solomon and did fairly well.

 If you answer correctly, like my daughters did, the DVD will then share the book and verse of King Solomon that reinforces the lesson.

If you get it wrong, no worries! The DVD will keep giving you choices to help you figure out the answer. It can be a little frustrating with the timer, but it is all in good fun. I do suggest that you play this game with mature tweens, teens and adults though.

To play Wisdomantics correctly, you are supposed to use the board game and DVD together, but we would forget to go back to the board game often because we would get caught up in the questions and the conversations they sparked.

A healthy dose of competition was shown on some questions as well, when one player wanted to help another before the timer ran out. Since it was all in good fun and we seemed to be enjoying the Q& A on the DVD more than prayer requests, blessings etc. on the board game, I decided that was perfectly okay option. 


You can watch a How-To on playing Wisdomantics to see what I mean. 






Our Thoughts:

We’ve only had one opportunity to play Wisdomantics during this busy time of year, but I know it will be a favorite in our home soon enough. We all really liked it, especially the interactive DVD part.

Hey, no fair - you didn't have a picture of the "wrong answer" like I got!! ha/ha This was a fun game. My favorite, though, is Scattergories. :)

I haven't played games with the family in FOREVER. Thanks for letting me know about this one.

My oldest daughter would like this game. She likes board games.

Melissa said...

Monopoly & Life are favorites in my house, but my kids would really love this one too. Better yet that it helps them with their Bible studies.

Hi Jamie,

Ha! Ha! I am forever the optimist so I had to share the correct answer screen. It really is a lot of fun and I'm glad you got to play it too.

Hi Michelle.

Monopoly is such a beloved classic isn't it? We love it here as well.

Good luck.

Our fave is "Cap the Hat," a board game I got as a child. I love the idea of this one, though -- learning the Bible in a fun way! Thank you for a wonderful giveaway!

Linda A. Kinsman said...

Hi Susan,
