Leviticus: the Video Game

Both Jim Davila and John Byron link to and discuss the article in The Tablet about a new video game which involves following the rules in Leviticus. I’d be interested to know what sort of possible educational uses a game like this might have, and how much someone who plays it ends up understanding about Leviticus!

    Very little, I’d say. The gameplay is bad, in my opinion, which limits how far one can get into the game. Also, the actual killing of animals is not the most important part of the Leviticus ritual system, which is what this game implies.

      Thanks for sharing your experience! It sounds like it is basically fruit ninja with kosher and non-kosher animals…
