In an epic battle of extraordinary powers, faith and fellowship, these devout angelic bishops seek God for guidance and authority. Which faithful child will God use to build His holy kingdom? God knows, but only time will tell!

  3. Kingdom Rapture (hold in hand 3 out of the 4 God cards)


Divine Thematic Power:

RFTK is designed to be enjoyed by any and all that play. You do not have to have prior knowledge or understanding of Christianity to be awed by this epic adventure. With that being said, RFTK was made to be the most captivating Christian based game ever designed. This game passively teaches principles found in the Christian faith – BUT be assured, this game is not boring. Like the metaphors found in the Holy Bible, RFTK is filled with hidden messages.
