A Christmas-themed board game that pits Jesus against Santa has been described as “offensive, shocking and blasphemous”.
Santa vs Jesus, made by London company Komo Games, is played by two teams – one for each of the festive figures – who battle through challenges in an attempt to win the most “believers”.
It was funded via crowd-sourcing site Kickstarter which said it was the “most complained about game in history”.
But fans have called it “good fun”.
Danny Webster, spokesperson for the Evangelical Alliance, says he believes a board game helping people learn about Jesus at Christmas would be “a great innovation” but he has a problem with the Santa vs Jesus game because “it trivialises Christian belief and equates them both as fictional characters.
