Fidelity Is Not a Crime

Matt C. Abbott provides a review of the Vatican Board Game which is, unfortunately, probably spot-on. The only positive review posted on the web site is from the Chicago Sun Times, which speaks volumes.

On the plus side, the game’s artwork is my sister‘s – and she did a splendid job.

I don’t know that much about the game, but I think it’s a dratted pity that the creator didn’t go through the extra step of getting an imprimatur, or at least a nihil obstat. The game could have been awesome, gobbled up by homeschoolers and RCIA programs alike. But as it stands, I’m leery of a Catholic label being slapped on something that reflects an “almost Catholic, but not quite” agenda.

See the Divinity board game for a faithful alternative.

  5. Please excuse my ignorance, but does a Vatican board game have a Pope-O-Matic?
