Move over, baseball cards!
Alef Blessed Cards are a fun and meaningful way to connect the blessings delivered by the Kohen Gadol on Yom Kippur. Today this prayer is included in the Yom Kippur liturgy. Each card depicts a custom character representing the different aspects of the blessing, and the reverse side contains interesting facts.
How to play.
Each package contains 7 cards and an instruction card. Collect more to play! Each player starts with a hand of 5 cards from their own deck (keep track of your cards, you’ll take them back at the end of the game!). Each card has a point value. Each game is five rounds. At the count of three both players place down their blessing card. Rock, paper, scissors rules. Red beats Blue. Blue beats Gold. Gold beats Red. Kohen Gadol wild cards trump all colors. Winner moves the cards to their keep. If both players play the same color, then the cards remain on the field until the next round. At the end of five rounds, each player adds up the number of points of their cards. The player with the most points wins! If a player “shoots the moon” by losing all five rounds, they win the whole game. The winner gets to trade their opponent for a card of the winner’s choice.
