At the Web site of Divinity Religious Publications (catholic games.com), you'll find two free online games — Bible Challenge and Catechism Challenge. You can buy and download the full version of the games here, too.

Catholic Doors Ministry has a number of interesting Catholic games at catholicdoors.com/games; favorites include Ask Jesus!, Help Baby Jesus, Hidden Word, Tic-Tac-Toe and Wipe the Glass.

The Society of the Divine Word has made available some simple games. Go to svd-ca.com/games.

The Memorare Web site has a section called Catechism Funhouse. It's at memorare.com/games/index.html. I like this quote from St. John Bosco found at the top of this page: “Enjoy yourself as much as you like — if only you keep from sin.”

The Catholic Community Forum has a couple of games: Who wants to be a Saint? and Bingo. They're at www.catholic-forum.com/games.html

The Daughters of St. Paul have My Friend Fun & Games page at myfriendmagazine.com/games/index.html. Here you will find both interactive and printable games with three levels of difficulty.
