``It’s different from other games because it’s cool: the tactics you can use and because you’re playing in the dark.``

``It was just fun because sometimes you have to be sneaky and sometimes you have to be fast.``

“It teaches you stuff. Like that there's going to be someone leading you, that you just got to follow them. Like the disciples.”

Save the Lost is a fast paced Christian game where players literally search the darkness to find The Light. To do so, they must outrun, out hide and outwit the enemy characters, called “Tempters.” But succeeding as an individual is not enough — to win, EVERYONE must find The Light and become Saved!

Set up is easy and fast:
Save the Lost acts as a metaphor for profound Christian principles about avoiding temptation, finding redemption and helping others do the same. It is 100% fun — but also a tool for teaching 100% Christian ideals.
“It also has biblical reference to it. If you look at it in a different way it shows how the followers of Christ help others get to Jesus.”

“It was just fun because sometimes you have to be sneaky and sometimes you have to be fast. Like sometimes you have catch them on the corner or just be fast and tag lots of people, and be good at linking arms with people and running.”
— Zack Poe, 16
“It teaches you stuff. Like that there’s going to be someone leading you, that you just got to follow them. You got to choose to follow them. Like the disciples basically.”

This is what The Lost are searching for. Upon touching it, Lost players become Saved and get to wear their own LED Cross Necklace.
Translucent and bright blue, these necklaces are both visually appealing and effective as game pieces. They are activated using a magnetic clasp. Players get to wear them after they become Saved.
These durable, nylon-woven LED wristbands include three lighting modes: steady, slow and rapid strobe. Ominous and red, they’re perfect for players who like causing trouble!
Use these lights to form the boundary of the starting area for The Lost as well as mark where players must return when tagged by a Tempter.
I think this game teaches Christian principles because it’s a symbolic game, the Tempters begin sort of a devil character and the Lost Souls being everyone trying to avoid the Tempters and trying to find The Light. It was awesome!

The strategy that took place in the game involved everybody, and everybody was playing together. Everybody…would strategize as a whole group against the Tempters — regardless of whether or not they’re friends.

My favorite part was when I was a Tempter and one of the advanced rules is you can link up with another Tempter and turn Saved Souls back into Lost Souls. Me and Jackson did really well with that and we won because we used team work and got lots of souls.
