The shadows deepen around your campsite in the first watch of the night. An enemy appears. Rouse your companions!
Defeat enemies before your companions to build your victory pile of Sacred Scroll cards. Speak the sacred verse referenced on the enemy card, or speak a verse on a card with a matching suit (Character Strength) from your hand or your companion’s hand.
Lightraiders play this game on the road and at Lightraider Academy to practice sacred verses (wordrunes) and prepare for battle. Now you can play First Watch at home. Even better, use your First Watch cards for organization and reference during other Lightraider adventures like the Moonbridge Raids. Game effects are listed on each card, and each card also incorporates a real-life Scripture application to expand your discipleship learning.
First Watch is a powerful Bible memory verse tool that integrates multiple memory techniques. Memorizing Bible verses based on reference alone is hard and retention is limited. With First Watch, the concise Scripture applications on each card teach valuable, contextual understanding, but they also serve as keyword hints that engage the memory through concept association. This improves learning and retention. At the same time, the rules of the game promote repeated quick memorization and competitive memorization.
First Watch is so much more than a Scripture memory card game. It is a comprehensive tool for learning and understanding the Word. Play the game to bring the Bible into your family and group time in a fun way. Or use the cards as daily mini-studies to improve your understanding of Bible verse applications. We believe the verses included in Level One are foundational and important to every Christian’s development.
Did you know:
The upcoming Wolf Soldier novel from Enclave Books incorporates verses from this level one First Watch deck. But in the novels, the verses are spoken in the Elder Tongue, the ancient language of Talania. Challenge yourself to recognize the verses from First Watch as you enjoy the story. Watch the characters experience the allegorical effects listed on the card.
