Chunking is a technique whereby you memorize small bits of
information at a time. Telephone numbers and credit cards are typically chunked.
Psychologists have determined that 5-7 bits of information is the optimal amount
per chunk. Therefore, when teaching children to memorize, it is best to divide the
information into smaller bits of information and then commit it to memory before
moving on to the next bit of information. "Chunking" is the basis
behind Bible Stack-O!TM

The Bible was written
over a 1500 year period, by a wide variety of authors (as many as 40),
from many different locations. Its authors are from all walks of life.
Some were kings, some peasants; still others were philosophers,
fishermen, doctors, judges, scholars, poets and farmers. Despite the
span of time and the diversity of writers, it is one book, with one
common purpose: to reveal God's salvation plan to us. The Bible was
written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to benefit all who

Play "Bible Memory" (For
two players or two teams.)
You'll need two decks of Bible
Stack-O! TM cards. Played similarly to the classic Memory Card game
whereby players lay cards face-down in rows on a table and take
turns turning over two cards at a time to find the pair.
(Before playing you may want to separate the Old Testament cards from
the New Testament cards so that you don't have too many cards laid out
on the table at one time.) The game is over when all the cards are
matched. The player or team with the most matches wins.

This game was developed by Blake Butler, age 10 of Whiteland, IN.
Blake plays his Bible Stack-O! cards similarly to the classic card
game, "Go Fish".
You'll need one set of Bible
Stack-O! TM cards.
Object: Get the most stacks of cards (a stack consists of 4
cards in exact sequence).
How To Play: If playing with three or four players deal 5 cards
each. If playing with two players deal 7 cards each. Place the
remaining stack of cards face-down at the center of the playing area
(the draw pile). Players arrange the cards in hand into sequential
order. If a stack is made (four cards in exact sequence), players lay
the stack down then draw four more cards to bring their hand back to
the right number of cards.
Youngest player goes first by asking another player for a card from
his or her hand to better the sequence of cards in hand. If a player
has the requested card, he or she must give it to the player. If the
player doesn't have the requested card, he or she responds by saying,
"Go Search Your Bible". At which point the player requesting
a card must draw from the deck until a card is drawn to better a
sequence in hand. Play continues clockwise, playing as before.
The game is over when the draw pile is depleted. Player with the
most stacks wins.
Play "Bible Stack-O! Solitaire"
(For One Player)
Developed by Emmalea
You'll need one set of Bible
Stack-O! TM cards.
Taking the place of the aces to play off - I used the Genesis,
Micah, Matthew and Revelation cards as "Key" cards when they came
up in play.
Set the game up like solitaire - with the 7 stacks of cards.
To play, each pile of cards are to be sequenced either up (or
down) from the card that is flipped up. This way you have at least 7
different sequences of Bible books going - PLUS playing off of
the 7 stacks on to KEY cards (like you do with the aces in regular
Whenever the "Key" cards are flipped up in play - they go
to the top (like in solitaire) and from there cards can be played
ascending from OT - Genesis - descending from Micah - ascending from
NT - Matthew ---- descending from Revelation until all the books are
played off of the piles onto the Key cards. This puts the Bible
books in order.
When a card can be played on the Key cards, you can play the whole sequence
that has accumulated on one pile - but - initiate moving the
sequence of cards only if the top card or bottom card in the
sequence - is the card needed for playing off onto the Key card
sequence. You cannot take a card from the center of the sequence to
play onto the Key card.
You can play "Spoons" using your Bible
Stack-O!TM cards too.
"Spoons" is played by giving 3-6 players four cards each.
The object is to get four cards in exact sequence. The dealer also
takes four cards and places the remaining deck faced down for the draw
pile. Place a set of spoons at the center of the table (one for each
player, minus one). At the go dealer draws a card from the deck and if
it's needed to better the sequence of the cards in hand, the card is
kept and one from the hand is then passed faced down to the player on
the left. If the next player needs the card it is kept and another
card is passed from hand, or it is passed to the next player. Play
proceeds very rapidly as dealer draws a card and either keeps it and
discards a card from hand to the next player or continues to pass the
card from the deck if it's not needed to better his or her hand. Each
player proceeds in the same manner. If the card passed is needed to
better his or her hand it is kept and a card from hand is passed, and
if the card passed is not needed, it is passed to the next player. The
cards are passed one at a time in rapid procession from the dealer
clockwise and end up in a "trash pile" next to the dealer.
The excitement arises when a player gets four cards in exact sequence,
at which time that player grabs a spoon, which signals the rest of the
players to grab a spoon too. The player that cannot grab a spoon
scores an "S" (remember, there is one less spoon per people
playing). Play continues with the player to the left of the dealer
becoming dealer in the next round of play. The first player to spell
"Spoons" is out and one spoon is removed from the table.
Play continues until one player is left.
Additional rules for playing "Spoons" can be found on Wikipedia.
