Equipped? is UNIQUE. It teaches Christians how to address 70+ faith challenges using a fun board game that calls for reflection and lots of interaction. Christians have been given the sometimes formidable task of destroying fortresses of lies and speculations that imprison both believers and unbelievers. Equipped? helps alert, arm and embolden players with truths that confront those lies compassionately.You don't have to know a lot of scripture to play. Just be willing to learn in a safe environment with other believers while having fun! Instructive & great for families with mature teens, Bible Studies, discipleship groups...anyone interested in sharing the living Christ with others!
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations..." (Jesus)
Equipped? is for mature 14-year-olds and UP. Players must use questions to respond to challenges we've all heard.

Fun rewards, forfeits+ and engaging face-to-face discussions bring up invaluable insights and approaches from other believers. Each section play time: 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
