Journey into Egypt

Instructions: Each player should select a place marker. Place them on Start and read the description and scriptures. Take turns rolling a die to see how many spaces to move. When you land on a space, read the description and then look up the scripture and read it. If the space has directions on it, move your marker that many spaces. The first player to reach the promised land wins. Note: All scriptures are from the book of Exodus unless otherwise noted.
