TRAIL TO ZION A Doctrine and Covenants game for the Seminary Assessment Test

Even though this game was created for the Seminary Assessment Test, it's a game that could be used for Family Home Evening, Mutual, or just for fun.


I printed out the map above on a 24" x  36" engineering print for about $4.  You could also do the next size down for only $2.  

Each player has a marker ( I made mine in different colors out of scrap paper).  The starting place is in Fayette, New York (where the church was established), then it goes through Kirkland, Ohio (where the gathering took place) then the finish is in Independence, Missouri (where Zion is located).  The reason I put a temple at Zion is because that is what the Saints were headed there to build. 

Each player takes a turn answering a question.  If they get it right they can move forward one space.  If they get it wrong then they stay where they are at.  Some of the question cards will move them ahead 2 spaces, and some of them will move them back one or two spaces.  The first person to get to Zion wins. 


Question Cards
Here are the question cards.  I printed them out on card-stock.  If you right click and save it into your pictures, or copy and paste it, then you can use it in your printing program.  Size it to fit the entire sheet of paper so the portions will print out properly.

You might notice that the answers appear to be on the wrong side.  That is because it will be printed out on the back side of the paper, so it is reversed.

Here is a blank form for you to

I had my class play this game and it really turned out great.  Since I have 26 students I made 4 copies of the game so that they wouldn't get bored and could also learn better.  I printed out the game questions in different colors for each group just in case they were to get mixed up.  Some of the students tried to steal the questions so that they could study them at home.
