    Redemption is a Christian Collectible Card Game (CCG) alternative to Magic the Gathering or Yu-Gi-Oh. Players use Heroes from the Bible (Moses, Daniel, etc) to rescue Lost Souls that your opponent's Evil Characters (Goliath, Judas, etc) attempt to guard. Each card contains a Bible verse providing context for the particular card and helping players understand more about how a person, event, or object is relevant in the Bible.

    Who Should Play Redemption? People of all ages who like Strategy, Fun and Fellowship. Typical players range from ages 8 to 50.

    What to Bring? We have card decks you can borrow if you don't have your own yet. Experienced players are welcome to bring their own decks (sleeved, type 1).
