My Catholic Kids has come out with a new version of their popular game Fishing for Saints. The original version was launched in May 2018 and sold out in two days! The company is releasing a brand new set today in limited release.
What’s so great about this card game (think your standard Go Fish but with saints instead of numbers) is that each saint is drawn to look like a cartoon- simple, accessible, but beautiful- so that kids can more easily relate to these giants of the Faith. The cards are also made out of a high quality, glossy cardstock, making them easy for little hands to pick up, but also durable!
I wrote about the original version at EpicPew in May and this summer 2018 edition has 10 all-new saints. Saints included in this deck are: St. Anne with the Child Mary, St. Anthony of Padua, St. Josephine Bakhita, St. Gabriel the Archangel, St. George, St. Michael the Archangel, St.Pio, St. Thérèse of Lisieux, Sts. Louis and Zelie Martin, and Servant of God Lúcia of Fátima.
Each deck also comes with 10 prayer cards of the saints with their picture on one side and a short, age-appropriate biography on the back. This time, instead of a paper prayer book you could add these prayer cards into, there is a full-color prayer book that includes a picture of and prayer to each saint included in the game. It’s beautifully written and designed, high quality, and just the right size for tiny hands and those just learning to read.
Like last time, there are two ways to play, either like Go Fish (but say, “Go pray!” instead) or as a memory game where kids have to find matching pairs of saints. My kids immediately mixed the new set with the old set for some super saintly fun!
My Catholic Kids is offering some launch day and week specials on the game and you really don’t want to miss these great values! On launch day (today, August 27th), if you buy a Fishing for Saints two-pack for the special $20 price, you’ll also get 2 free sets of Saint Stickers (in regular and mini size) and 2 free full-color Prayer Books. That’s a $50 value for only $20! For the rest of the week (August 28-31), if you buy a Fishing for Saints two-pack at the special $20 price, you’ll also get 2 free full-color Prayer Books. That’s a $40 value for $20! Do not miss out! These are great gifts for your own children, grandchildren, godchildren, the local parish’s religious education program, a Catholic elementary school, or for anywhere else Catholic children gather!
Seriously guys, I cannot recommend this game enough. We love the original deck and are already falling in love with this new one. We also adore the saint stickers (my kids decorated their school supplies with them this year!) and the magnets. Check out My Catholic Kids for more information and other great products. You can also find them on Instagram and Facebook. Now get out there and go pray!
