Make playing the "To Bethlehem" Game 'round the Christmas tree a part of your family's Christmas traditions!
Be the first to reach the Newborn King . . .but beware, there'll be expenses along the way! Each player starts out with 5 shekels as they attempt to make their way to Bethlehem. Along the way, they'll have to complete zany activities, pay some shekels, and answer "Around the Campfire" questions about their own favorite Christmas traditions, memories, and other holiday thoughts. With a number of fun options, and over 70 ancient Roman plastic coins to play with, this is one game your kids might beg to play year-round! Includes instructions, cards, Roman plastic coins, and 10 player pieces.
The family loves this game! It's a blast!! We play it all year round and the kids who cannot even read have already memorized some of the spaces on the board. My water bill takes a beating, beacuse they all love to run and flush the toilet - gotta play to know what that means.
UNBELIEVABLE!!! My children don't want it to be just for December. We play it often and love it so much!! Thank you Debbie & the kids for this game.
You are wonderful and I pray God will continue to bless your ministry.

What a great invention! Finally a game that celebrates and teaches the true meaning of CHRISTmas! Thanks for all the wonderful memories your game has provided! May God continue to inspire you with more great ideas! My husband also loves the You da' Dad desk calendar and your weekly emails!!! Thanks for ALL you do to glorify God!!!

I bought this game a couple of weeks ago and my daughter LOVES it. We play it at least once per day. It is great fun. Thanks for making a game with purpose that is so much fun.
Our kids (ages 6,10,14) LOVE this game! We play boardgames several times a week and this is the first one the kids request...everytime!
Great family game with lots of laughter!
Here are a few customer reviews from Amazon.com
* We got this game last year for our boys for Christmas. They absolutely love this game. Especially my 4 year old. We play all year round. It is just a hoot and great memories. Socks on hands and running to the bathroom to flush the toilet (you have to get the game to understand) Great family moments come out of this game, and easy for even the youngest ones in the family!
* Bethlehem has been a big hit with our family. We first played it 2 years ago. It brings the family together. You will have a lot of laughter and fun memories for years to come. Every family needs this!
* Our Dad is not a huge game guy but it's easy to get him to play this one with us at Christmas time and in the process create lasting memories for our children. You can get through a good game in about 30 minutes which is perfect for both parents' and kids' limited attention spans, and there are laughs to go 'round when Dad has to wear his sock on his left hand or mom has to pay shekels for mule parking. A great way to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas when everyone needs a realignment following the present-a-palooza. A very worthwhile addition to your family's game collection.
*We all love this game. We have had it for two years now and love it. I am looking forward to pulling out again this coming season. My favorite part, as the mom, is all the laughing and smiles that abound while enjoying HIS season. My daughter's favorite part is figuring out at the end wether your beggar or a fine goods trader. My sons' favorite part is flushing the toilet and putting a towel on your head!! You can not go wrong with this game!
*Do you know that there are very few Christmas games out there, especially that center around the true Christmas story? This game is totally cool for the whole family. With five kids,and mom and dad playing, it's great to see a game with more than six players' pieces. Non-readers and readers alike can have a fun family night playing this game that we have reserved for the Christmas season. A truly memorable family tradition I see happening for years to come!
*This is a great game for "family game night". Lots of laughs from the kids when they see mom or dad with a towel on their heads. All ages can play unlike many other games. This is the most requested by the kids.
We just got our copy a couple of days ago and the first thing that struck me was how professional the game looked. We played for the first time with our two girls (3 & 6), and we all loved it! There was MUCH laughter, silliness, and good conversation while playing this game.
Thanks for inventing such a fun and wacky game. It's just the thing to bring all ages around the table. We've even added a few "house rules," where you have to run around the house whenever someone lands on the camel stampede. Here's a fun photo of grandparents with socks on their hands :)
Would teenagers enjoy this game? Do we need to purchase extra coins for a family of 5?
--The Mendez Family
We love this game and play it year around. We have played it with our extended families and now they want a copy. Everyone has fun.
i am 8 years old and i love it! i love it because i won the first game we ever played (it just arrived in the mail today)! i like all of the funny stuff. it is really a fun game.
I am 6 years old. I like flushing the toilet at Elijah's Rest Stop! It is fun!
Yikes - the game was supposed to arrive in 1-2 weeks, and it came after just 3 days! How do I hold the kids off from our "game of the year" till after Thanksgiving!!!!? :-)
Our whole family enjoys this game. Teens sit in the kitchen and have a blast while parents watch from the living room and laugh! We even used it with the youth group at church last year at their Christmas party. We have 3 married children so far and each got his own game for his new family. Maybe we should have gotten a case, there are still 7 living at home!
I am 8. We dont have the game but it looks interesting. From all the comments, it makes it look fun!

Fun family game!

This game is the most requested game by our boys (ages 6 and 7). They can’t get enough of it. We have a lot of laughs playing it together. It promotes family bonding and it is a great game to have and play, especially during this time of year.
Love this game!

We have played this game every year for many years now - my kids are teens and 20s and we still play! Every year, I try to gift one to a young family so they can make great family memories playing it, too. So fun!!

We love board games and card games and especially sharing them with friends and family. I heard about this game and immediately ordered! The day it arrived, we rushed through dinner to get to play. All six of us (mom, dad, 12yo, 9yo, 8yo, 3yo) played. It was so funny and special! My 9yo is on the autism spectrum and plays games with her ABA therapists as a reward for good work. The next day, she was so excited to show our new game to her therapist! They played three times! It cracked me up to see the game on the floor with a towel and socks!!
Wonderful family game!

Games are hit or miss sometimes. There was quite a bit of hype written over this game and how fun it was. Well....it is a blast! My husband is not a game player but he found himself laughing and enjoying himself (unless he was losing!). This truly was an easy, fun and laughter filled family game!!
Good Ol' Family Fun!

We had a great time playing this with the whole family: aunts uncles grandparents and our immediate family. We laughed sitting on each other's laps, rubbing shoulders, and wearing socks on our hands while still keeping focused on the true meaning of Christmas. We liked it so much we bought another for some friends for a hostess gift.
Awesome Family Game

Our entire family has enjoyed playing the Bethlehem Game. My 5 & 6 year can't wait to play and land on the box where you make each player a snack! We love it and gives us some great Family time.
A great family game, but a little pricey
Posted by Tam Family on Dec 8th 2016
Our family of 5 really enjoys playing this game. The sharing questions are excellent because they help our family go deeper in understanding one another while having fun doing it. The only down side to this game is the price. Along with the shipping cost, it is almost $40, which is almost double the price of a typical board game on Amazon.
WONDERFUL family game!

We love this game! Thank you Todd for creating a game for families! It is silly and fun! And it helps us learn about each other and stay focused on the Christmas season!
Best Game Ever!
Posted by Unknown on Nov 29th 2016
We got this game for our family several years ago. We play it every Christmas season and laugh our heads off every single time. I mean tears and sore stomach muscles the next day kind of laughing! We also get to learn about family memories and special moments along the way. We have purchased it for at least 5 or 6 other families now and it is their favorite too! We love it!
