Unity Testimonials

"It is my pleasure to recommend the card game, Unity.  Dan Olds has created something special for those of us who love to play games.  There is a logic to this game that satisfies even the advanced gamer.  Moreover, the subject matter teaches us our rich Jewish/Christian heritage and exhorts us as Paul does that we be like minded."
-Rob Anderson, President, Cactus Game Design, Inc. (Creator of the biblical card game Redemption)

After playing Unity I must say that it's one of the more unique and fun Christian card games on the market.  I expected  a decent game but Unity surprised me.  It's a great game.  What really bugs me is why this game isn't in all the various Christian retail outlets.  It's high time they took notice of this game and started stocking their shelves with it.  In fact, every Church with a youth group could add a unique and fun element to their program with Unity. Buy it.  Now.   Don't wait.  Go to the website and order as many decks as you need.   We're not kidding.  You won't be sorry you got it.  If you like collectible trading card games you'll enjoy Unity.  If you don't like the complexity of collectible card games like Redemption, you'll enjoy Unity.  The group I played with was a mix of Christians and non-Christians.  Some were hard core MTG (Magic the Gathering) fans.  They expected a stuffy and boring Christian game but instead found that it was engaging, original and fun.

"I am a youth pastor as well as editor of the Blazing Sword Redemption Newsletter. I have played many Christian games and Unity is one of the best I've played. Unity plays very well and is Biblically and theologically accurate. We have played it with 2, 3, 5, and 6 people and it played well every time!  I love it most because it teaches all who play the characters and festivals of the Bible. My youth love it because it is fun. It is a win-win game!" – Doug Gray   Loudonville, Oh

Congrats on producing an awesome game! I just got my copy of the Unity card game today, and I must say that I am impressed. I have been a gamer since I was 9 years and I have to tell you that this is a truly well designed game. Most "Christian" games out there are little more than candy coated bible studies, and while there is nothing wrong with that, avid gamers such as myself want something more. I was intrigued by the description and ruleset I found on the internet. So I naturally ordered a copy of the game to see if it really held up to its claims. And take it from a veteran gamer, It did. The gameplay is simple, yet the strategy is complex, the replay value is virtually endless, and most importantly, its scriptural basis is solid! This is truly an awesome game and I intend to encourage my church's bookstore to retail a few sets.

"I want to recomend the game of UNITY to all gamers who like strategy card games. UNITY is Biblically based and invites the players to think seriously about the battle between the forces of evil and the forces of God. The game reflects how our actions and decisions can have longlasting effects and may lead us into trouble. My favorite part of the game is that you can actually do yourself a favor by inviting others to enter into righteousness. The game can also open up avenues for discussion and ministry with youth and young adults who are seeking the good news or are even unchurched. Just open a box and see if you can be the first to lose all your cards and win the game. Winning is not as easy as it sounds, because this game is challenging--just like life!"

"I wanted to write to in order to let you know how successful your game Unity has been in our youth group. I received the game on Wednesday and  they have been playing it all week long at our county fair church booth.  We have had a music and puppet ministry going all week and during the down times the kids have been playing Unity. As a pastor it is refreshing to see the kids take to something that actually has a spiritual basis. One of our teens launched a 90 some point attack which was defeated by ONE trinity card - this led to a discussion on Evil's "so-called" power and how God can defeat even the greatest evil with one stroke. Also, they love using the Judgment of God card to reverse evil attacks which led to a discussion on how we reap what we sow. So, thanks for a great game and I hope it catches on elsewhere. I know that I'll do my part as a youth pastor to promote it when and where I can."

"This is a great game with subtle strategy. The first few games were to learn the rules; once we got those down, it was time to really start figuring out how best to use the cards to surprise your opponent and win the game. Yes, there is a nice tool here for learning scripture and Bible concepts. One of the better games I have played recently; a good addition to any player who enjoys games in general, or card games like Redemption!" - Mike Thornton of Select Games Lawrence, KS

"As Jr. Highschool youth leaders we figured The Unity Card game would be an exciting and competitive way for youth to interact during game time on youth night. We found the game to be challenging at the same time allowing us to learn verses about good and evil. The card graphics are well done and each card has a scriptural verse accompanying it. We found as we played the game that defeating evil with evil has a penalty just like in our daily lives. We noticed that certain Righteous cards such as the Trinity cards have great power against even the most powerful Evil card. We know this to be true in spiritual warfare as well. We would highly recommend this game as a way to teach Gods principles, in a fun and exciting competitive manner. -Mark Strynar, Mary Strynar, Ron Baker, Tanya Baker - Bellefonte PA

This is a strategy card game that calls for planning ahead.  One of the things we do as a family is to let the little ones play as teams with the adults.  This lets them feel like they are part of the game and you will be surprised at how much fun they have and how much they learn.  This would apply this game because of the strategy involved.  The reason why I say this is because there is so much more to this game than just playing the cards.  It teaches so much about the people of the bible.  Each card depicts characters both in the physical world and in the spiritual world with bible verses relating to those characters.  There are also cards depicting the festivals of God. This brings life to the game and teaches biblical truths.  The cards are well designed and the categories are easily distinguishable by their symbols.   The game plays well.  Much of the play is in response to what was played ahead of you.  Free turns is where the strategy of the game comes into play.  Deciding what to play comes with experience so the more the game is played, the easier it is to develop a game strategy.  The level of this strategy will also grow the more the game is played.  This is what makes the game fun and challenging and it is what will keep you coming back for more.  The play changes quickly.  A player with few cards has few choices to make while a player who has a lot of cards can find himself controlling the course of the game.  This makes the game different not only from game to game, but also within each game.  This creates a lot of interaction between the players.  The more you play, the more you will want to play.  Because the games are short, the interest level stays high and your thirst for more grows, and you will find your self always wanting more. -Marvin Hanneman of HIS FAMILY BOARDGAMES
