Emoji Bible Stories Card Game is a game for younger audiences (6+) where players use common emojis to tell popular Bible stories. Featuring 4 different game modes, each option adjusts for the player’s Bible knowledge revolving around the same emoji-storytelling concept.


The “Telling an emoji Bible story” version of the game has players drawing and playing emoji cards hoping to have their opponents guess their secret story card. This is the game’s most challenging format where players and opponents score points for being able to effectively communicate the story and guess their opponents stories told through the emoji cards. Another mode has players guessing the Bible story from a series of emoji cards. The final 2 have players collecting and matching emojis from a drawn story card. Opponents may or may not attempt to guess the Bible story depending on their Biblical knowledge. The game also features comprehensive story summary cards that can be read by an adult to help kids learn and dive deeper into a specific Bible story.

Each game is incredibly quick to set up, easy to teach and quick to play. Since this is all geared toward a younger audience, this is key to keeping them engaged. Typically on your turn you take simple actions (draw a card/play a card/exchange a card), so even the youngest players can easily participate.


While the games are simple and scale based on the players Biblical knowledge, I really appreciated how the more challenging game options do require a basic Bible knowledge of these common Bible stories. I say “challenging” loosely since everything is relatively simple. A player might choose to play a lion, thunderstorm and dove emoji to communicate “Noah and the flood.” If a story drawn is too hard or they’re not familiar with it, players can use a turn to exchange the story card for another. It’s a bit of a race, but forming the story from a series of emojis takes both luck and creativity.

My 2 daughters have a good understanding of the majority of the game’s Bible stories and they really enjoyed the game play. They loved trying to guess the stories from emoji images and they also had a good time trying to draw the right emojis to tell their story. The mechanics are simple leaving them to focus on the more engaging story-telling aspect.

The “Guess the Bible story” mode has one player choosing 3 emojis in an effort to get others players to guess the story while “Match and Guess” has players drawing specific emoji cards that match those listed on a chosen story card in hopes of communicating their secret Bible story to their opponents.

Again, the game is scalable based on a player’s Bible knowledge. The “Snap and Redeem” game option presents a Bible story card with a series of emojis and players will simply draw cards trying to match 3 of the story’s images.


Overall, the game does a good job of helping young players understand the key concepts from a particular Bible story through the images. The summary cards also provide good context to flesh out and better familiarize players with any of the game’s stories.

I think this is a good game for parents to play with their kids. It’s a great opportunity to help young children become more familiar with these stories in a fun, engaging way. The “Tell an emoji Bible story” game option is a fun exercise for both kids and adults—gathering the right emojis efficiently to tell the story on their story card. The more simple game options provide a good gateway for younger kids to become more familiar with these timeless stories. The emoji visuals will also help kids remember these key concepts as well.

I’m not a huge “emoji” fan, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. If you’re a parent looking to help your younger children become more familiar with basic Bible stories you should definitely check this out.
