We laughed so much when doing the "Action" cards!! We will send video footage but just wanted to let you know we are so grateful to brothers like you for taking the time to make this game. Family worship evenings will never be the same again! Thank you!

Good morning David, just want to say thank you for the wonderful boardgame you have created. We played it a number of times with our brothers and sisters here in Knysna.

The idea for Gem Diggers originated when a group of friends got together for a Group Family Worship project and decided to create a boardgame based on Bible Knowledge / Trivia. We designed the board, had it printed but left the squares blank, with the idea being for the more artistic among us to colour these in on the day with various images associated with the Organization.
Each person would write down 10 ‘clues’ which were words or phrases from the bible, publications or other Organizational material. We divided into teams, and each team was represented on the board by a hand-made clay polymer ‘token’ (miniature objects / artefacts). One person in each team would try to describe these words / phrases without saying the actual words, while the others would try and guess. The teams would advance around the board based on the amount of described clues correctly guessed.
We had so much fun with this game that a few of the friends suggested I create a 'proper, professional' version for friends around the world to play. Using my background in design and web development, I created the game you are reading about now. It has evolved slightly since its genesis, but the object has ever been the same: To provide all those who love Jehovah with a fun, interactive and engaging way to 'enhance your store of spiritual gems!'
Please Note: All clues have been meticulously researched!
