Commissioned is a unique game. It is based on the history of the Early Church, yet it is not a trivia game and you do not need to have any knowledge of history, the church, or the Bible in order to play. By the end of the game, however, you will have learned something about all three.
Commissioned is a co-operative board game. When I first told this to my kids, they scoffed at me. "No winners or losers? What's the point?" But there is winning and losing. You just do it all together as a team. You play together to, as I explained, "Beat the game itself." Being video gamers, they did understand this. :)
Commissioned is a world domination game of sorts. You are conquering the world for Jesus. Or, more accurately, I suppose, you are planting churches all over the map of the Early Church. You have Prayer and Faith cards to help you and Trials to hinder you, just like the Apostles did.
