Goodword Kidz, which produces top quality, beautifully illustrated Islamic books and games, is today a leading name in children’s Islamic publishing. Recently Goodword Kidz launched a number of very interesting and unique Islamic games. These are: the Quran Challenge Game, the Junior Quran Challenge Game, the Great Mosque Game and the Hajj Fun Game.
The Quran Challenge Game is an innovative game whose major appeal is that it is based on the verses of the Quran. Meant for 8 year olds and above, it is beautifully and imaginatively designed to keep children captivated for hours on end. It has question-answer cards, a well-illustrated playing board with pawns, and the rules of the game, which are simple and interesting, are given on a separate sheet along with the introduction. There are six hundred questions, the answers to which all give references to the verses of the Quran from which the questions are taken. This outstanding feature of the game prompts the players to refer to the Quran and learn more from it.
The questions have been divided into six different categories: Quranic knowledge; the Prophets in the Quran; the People of the Quran; Places of the Quran; Messages of the Quran; and the Ninety-nine Names of Allah.
The many noteworthy features of the game give children of all ages much to learn every time they play. Adults too will certainly derive inspiration from it. As a pastime, it is truly a journey into the world of fun, wisdom and faith.
The Junior Challenge Game is similar in presentation, design and content to that of the Quran Challenge Game, but has been specially devised for smaller children (5 years and upwards). Keeping in mind the level of understanding of this younger age group, the questions have been made easier and divided into only four categories. These categories are: Stories from the Quran; People of the Quran; Places of the Quran; and Teachings of the Quran. There are 200 questions in all and the rules have been simplified and made more interesting. The board has a new look and is beautifully illustrated in
The great Mosque Game is again a first-of-its-kind game about the mosque and its architecture. Exceptional in its presentation, style and content, it is based on an excellent job of research on the important mosques around the world, on the mosque’s architecture and on Makkah, Madinah and Jerusalem. The game has question-answer cards, a playing board and pawns. One conspicuous feature of the game is the illustrations and pictures accompanying the question-answer cards, which make it easy for the children to answer the questions. There are three hundred questions which are divided into three categories: the mosque’s architecture and some important mosques; Islamic teachings; and Makkah, Madinah and Jerusalem. The playing board is very colourful and has pictures of important mosques around it. The rules of the game are simple; each correct answer will get the player ten reward points and the one with the maximum number of reward points wins the game.
This unique game will help children know more about mosques and their history, Islamic teachings, and Makkah, Madinah and Jerusalem. It is a journey down the past to discover the glory of Islamic history, its architecture, culture and faith.
The Hajj Fun Game offers entertainment and fun. At the same time it makes it easy for you to learn the meaning and message of Hajj and to acquire a knowledge of the important historical places associated with it. It will enable you to learn how the acts and rites are performed during the pilgrimage and what its do’s and don’ts are.
In short, the Hajj Fun Game will bring to life the annual pilgrimage of Hajj. This game introduces you to the Hajj pilgrimage and helps you·learn all about It!
These games have been conceived and designed by Saniyasnain Khan and Khalid Perwez.
