Treasures in Heaven is now available on The Game Crafter in a professionally printed box. The Game Crafter is a “Print on Demand” site which means that they won’t start printing your copy of the game until after you order it. Since it is custom printed, prices are a little bit higher than a game of comparable complexity that you might find in a brick and mortar game store, and we only make a small percentage from the sale. We hope you enjoy the game! Thank you for supporting our work!
Treasures in Heaven is a cooperative board game about the fruits of the spirit for 2 to 9 players. It is helpful if players can read, but color coded cards make it possible for younger players to join the fun with the adults! Players work together to gather all the fruits of the spirit before the rains come and spoil the harvest. Gameplay lasts about 30 to 45 minutes.
This game won an award at the 2010 CGDC annual game design competition. The rule was it had to use a chromatic scale of colors. Christian content is a bonus. Treasures in Heaven does both! What I did was match up the 9 fruits of the spirit to 9 different fruits in a rainbow of colors. After some play testing and a few revisions, the game is now ready for people to play! Enjoy!
