Take ... what is this, Five now? Christian Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog Tour: Edenstar Books & Games

Greetings & Salutations! I realized when typing my post title that I mistakenly labeled both July's and August's tours as "Take Three" ... Kathy Tyers should have been "Take Four," which would make this month "Take Five." Oh, well ... chalk it up to my usual state of distraction.

So, this month we are highlighting the Edenstar Books & Games, a wonderful little site for finding almost anything Christian SF/F-themed, including all the variations on Lord of the Rings for computer or board play. For my kids, that might be ... bored play. They're fanatics about the computer and Playstation games--and one of their favorite board games is the LOTR edition of Risk--although I'm not sure what would qualify any of them as Christian besides their association with LOTR. (Don't take that necessarily as a criticism--I'm not of the belief that something is necessarily made better or worse by the label "Christian.")

  1. My nephew's kids had a blast with the Narnia game, though they were a little young and did little more than trial and error. Still, I thought it was fun and certainly keeps the characters of the book/movie fresh in their minds.

    Good job hooking up with the games aspect of the site.

  2. Too busy to post and probably too busy to comment, but stopping in to say hi! I've enjoyed Edenstar quite a bit.

  3. Thanks, y'all! I should have added that the LOTR trading card game is cool, too. (Was kind of in a hurry when I posted this morning ... yikes.) I even have my own set but (bad mommy) haven't yet played with my husband and kids ...
