What is the Parable of the Talents Game?

The Talents game is part of the Parable of the Talents interactive lesson on Sunday Software's Awesome Bible Stories. The Talents game is a "reflection and discussion-starter disguised as a game. One or Two players spin an onscreen spinner to advance to their "reward" and win the game. As they advance, the game randomly awards or takes away "talents" from the player in the form of bags of gold -- giving a reason or example of how they have "earned" or "lost" a talent.  Each of these onscreen reasons are meant to stimulate discussion. For example, "Why is exercise a kind of stewardship?" and "Why is spending money on foolish things an example of poor stewardship?"

How do I download and play it?

1) Download the free zip file attached to this post, then double-click the downloaded file to "extract" (unzip) the download's four files into their own folder on your computer.

2) Read both the README file and the "Instructions" PDF found in the downloaded file. The Talents Game is an Adobe "Flash" file which will either play in your computer's browser, or can be opened in the included standalone Flash Player. See the instructions.

Here are a few screenshots from the game...
