Journeys of Paul is a great game! My whole family loved it! At first I thought it would be just a game following the places Paul went and everything he did,but I was wrong.
This game is recommended for 10 years and older by the manufacturer, but I played it with my 8 years old and 6 years old brothers, and we all enjoyed it. The rules are simple and the game is fun. One game (depending on the cards you have) lasts approx. 45-60 mins. We played with our parents too, and we all had fun. It is a strategy game, so you need to think your journey through, rather than just count on your luck.
The object of the game is to get to Rome from Jerusalem. You can use to go on land or by sea (but you need a Ship available card to go by sea). You have to build 3 churches in 3 cities on the way, and your 4th, final church in Rome. However you can not build in just any city. The first one who gets to Rome and builds the 4 churches is the winner. Your Journey could get hindered by certain events (bad weather, imprisonment, sickness, ship wrecked etc.) Some events can be countered with Opportunity cards, if you have the right ones. You can also trade those cards. You get 3 City cards that help you build your churches faster in some cities, by giving you extra cell groups (you need 7 cell groups to build your church). However your City cards might make your journey longer, so you don't necessarily want to build only in those 3 cities on your cards. You also get Deacons that can save your churches that you already built (if you have the right opportunity card which allowes you to use your Deacons).
This is a great strategy game, I highly recommend it. If you want a fun family christian board game, this is the one for you.
