Nauvoo Neighbor Game

A few days ago I was searching the web for something fun to share in Family Home Evening about Nauvoo (I was teaching a lesson about the temple there) and I found this fun game that you can download for free. The "Nauvoo Neighbor" board game is kind of a take off on a Monopoly game--it uses streets in Nauvoo and various buildings located on each of the streets. As you go around the board and land on the different properties you can read a bit about what it was for or who built it or lived there. It took us about 20 minutes to play a round; Sweetie Peach was very excited when she won. I think we will laminate and hold on to this game and play it on a Sunday again after Patch is back from Scout camp. I love having additional activities to use for FHE and Sunday afternoons.

Scripture of the Day: 2 Corinthians 6:4-10


  1. Oh, how fun!!! I have ancestors who actually were neighbors in Nauvoo so that makes it especially fun for me! Can't wait to use this!

  2. The game is no longer available. Can you re-post the link? I'm teaching Primary and have a very busy full-time job, so not much time in my schedule to make up my own version. Thank YOU!!

  3. I would LOVE a digital copy if you still have it or could even take photos of your copy. The link to the original creator is not longer available . My family will be visiting Nauvoo this summer and monopoly junior is their favorite game. If so you can send it to me at


Comments are much appreciated!
