More about the Game

Time together is more and more precious as many families feel the squeeze of rough financial times and the pull of electronic media -- and nothing quite beats an old-school board game for a fun, cheap activity that allows all ages to gather around for some actual face time. Players share gifts of grace, hope, faith and love in a cooperative battle against sin and deception on a journey to New Jerusalem. The Treasure in Heaven Game is about families sitting around the table, reading Bible scriptures aloud, in a fun, playful atmosphere that rewards sharing, giving and loving your neighbor. Whosoever collects the most Treasure in Heaven wins!

  • The Treasure in Heaven Game brings families together in a fun, loving, cooperative way.
  • Players experience dramatic Bible events such as the Flood, Golgotha and the Rapture.
  • The game is an epic battle between the Fruits of the Spirit and the works of the flesh.
  • Provides children with a framework for understanding the Bible message of Love, Hope and Salvation.
  • The game allows players to see through the tribulation of the end times into the joy and peace of the Millennium and beyond, as depicted in the book of Revelation.
  • A fun, interactive retelling of the greatest story ever told.
  • No Bible knowledge is necessary to play; children can beat Bible scholars.
  • By focusing on collecting Treasure in Heaven, the game encourages good works.
  • Players learn something new every time they play.
  • The Treasure in Heaven Game models the Great Commission ( Mark 16:15) to preach the Gospel into all the world.

  • Mothers' and fathers' eyes sparkle with joy when their children boldly confess Jesus with their mouth as a part of game play.
  • College students think it is a great way to actually experience the scriptures in a non-religious setting.
  • It is simple enough for young children to enjoy and they become eager to learn to read!
  • Young adults are attracted to the sophisticated game mechanics and complexity.
  • Art lovers are attracted to the great works of art.
  • Older people just like it.

The story is simply the greatest story ever told, the Gospel. We are creating new cards just about every day, as the wealth of inspiration is endless. Hero Packs will be available on a regular basis for those who want to expand their knowledge of the Bible by adding cards to their basic game. Short films will be available on the website announcing a new pack release and they can be used to augment the educational aspects of the game. Here is our introduction to the world of Treasure in Heaven:

Masterpieces of sacred art have been used in the design of the game board and the cards. All of the artwork is available in the public domain and a complete bibliography is available on the website. We have tried to be true to the style of artwork used in the game, but where illustrations were not available, our own derivative works have been employed.

We are targeting our product launch to place the game in select stores for Christmas 2013. 



Strategy  Players share gifts of Faith, Hope and Love in a cooperative battle against Sin and Deception on a journey to New Jerusalem. No prior Bible knowledge is necessary. The strategy is to love your neighbor as yourself. Players win the game by collecting Treasure in Heaven cards. Truly, there are no losers; all collect Treasure in Heaven. There simply emerges a family champion who collects the most Treasure in Heaven. You don't get Treasure in Heaven by how much you know, but by how much you love!

Moving through the Levels Each ring within the circle on the game board represents a different Level of the game. Faith cards can be played to move players up through the various Levels of the game. Players must play one Faith card per Level. They may move one level per turn. Players begin the game in the Fallen World, the outermost ring of the circle represented by the land masses of planet Earth. In the Fallen World, roll 2 dice and play the space you land on. The next ring within the circle is the Millennium Level. When players reach this Level, instead of using the dice, they select the top card from the stack of Millennium cards with the white borders, and move their game piece to the space shown on the card. Players then read the Millennium card and play the ability on the card. In addition, they pick up one of the two Fallen World cards available in their section. In the Heaven Level. players use only one die and pick up a card from one of the four Fallen World spaces available in their section.

Battling Sin and Deception Follower cards are used to overcome Sin and Deception (S/D) spaces and transform them into Kingdom of Heaven (KOH) spaces. When a S/D space is overcome, a KOH marker is placed on the space, changing the game board for the duration of the game. When all S/D spaces have been overcome, then and only then, any player may advance to the center of the board, New Jerusalem, signifying the end of the game. The first player to reach New Jerusalem collects three active Treasure in Heaven (TIH) cards. The player who ends the game may not necessarily be the player who wins the game. Once the game ends, each player counts their active TIH cards, and a family tally may be taken as a benchmark for future games. The player with the most TIH cards is declared the family champion. In the event of a tie, the tied players should count their cards in the following order: Love cards, Hope cards, Faith cards, Follower cards, or total card count.

Using Cards in the Game Each card features a scripture, powers, trading values and special abilities, if there are any. After rolling the dice and moving your playing piece, place the card you receive picture-side down in front of you, in the space known as your House. You will be able to activate 3 cards during your turn by reading the scripture portions aloud. Once you read a card, flip it over so the picture is visible to other players. The card is now active, and remains active even when given to another player. Once a player reads a card, it does not need to be read aloud again. You can play, trade or give away as many active cards as you choose during your turn.

Risks and challenges

Marketing is one of our biggest challenges. To do that we've assembled a team of professionals. We will need to understand print media and internet media. We have hired a professional marketing company, a media professional, a business consultant and a copywriter to assist in the campaign and subsequent marketing profile.

Printing- Our biggest physical challenge is printing the board games overseas. It will be essential to choose the right company. Production delays and quality control issues could be a problem. We have researched many different companies and we will try to avoid these pitfalls by hiring experience and proven results.

Under capitalization- Another pitfall we may encounter is a deficient cash flow to complete the marketing of the games. We each have over 30 years of small business experience and we have experienced the effects of under capitalization. We have built into our business plan a marketing budget to accompany each level of our goal structure.
