Look out, Old Maid, here's Bishop Rick

LINDON, UTAH -- Reed and Eve Hansen have developed "Bishop Rick," a unique version of "Old Maid." The Hansen's run Scripture Creations Inc. from their home. "Bishop Rick" is one of several games the Hansens created. Their other games include "Fishing for Nephites" which is scriptural "Go Fish", "Concentrate on LDS Presidents" which focuses on knowledge of church leaders, and "Articles of Faith" which includes a tiny die that, when rolled, will tell players how many words one must recite of a specific Article of Faith.

The games are available in Utah book, game and grocery stores and in several foreign countries. Deseret Book has featured the card games in its mailer the past few months, and BYU ordered 800 maps for an upcoming religion teachers' conference.

"Bishop Rick" is a children's game that teaches about callings in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in a fun way. The game depicts characters such as Clerk Clark, Chorister Connie and Priesthood Preston in a humorous way. Priesthood Preston is shown drawing football plays on the chalkboard to teach church doctrine. Relief Society Rita has a to-do list that goes on forever.

"It's all meant to be fun, but we didn't want a negative concept," Hansen said. "So we turned it around. In the bishop-friendly version, if you get the bishop card, you win."
