The Exodus Of Israel

A quick historical family game for all ages




The Exodus Of Israel is one of the most well known and preserved events of ancient times, being found in many sources, including the Old Testament writings acknowledged by the Islamic, Judaic, and Christian faiths. It follows the story of the tribes of Jacob, having relocated to Egypt during a severe famine. Initially welcomed due to the favor earned by Jacob's son Joseph, generations later forced into slavery by a Pharaoh who no longer remembered or cared for the growing nation of outsiders.

The God of Jacob (re-named Israel before his death) hears the plight of the nation, and delivers them out of the hand of Pharaoh through a series of plagues which break down the hardened will of Pharaoh as well as show His power in the eyes of the region. Led by the prophet Moses, the Israelites are granted their freedom, and immediately make their migration (Exodus) back to the land promised them by God.

The journey was not a pleasant one. Being in the desert with stressed resources, it often led to complaining, and sometimes outright rebellion against Moses and God Himself despite leading and providing for them.

This game follows the path of the Israelites through the wilderness as told in the Old Testament, primarily in the books of Exodus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. For your convenience, each step marked on their route has the corresponding locations in the Old Testament where the story-line can be seen in more detail. As you make the journey out of Egypt, you will recount the highs and lows experienced by the Israelites, and through a bit of luck and good decision-making, arrive in the Promised Land with the most faithfulness. We hope you enjoy the game and learning more about this story in history!
