Some years ago Zondervan released a educational game on CD called “Get Lost in Jerusalem.” The goal of the game was to navigate through the Old City of Jerusalem with the help of clues. Many American students were particularly delighted to find that “home base” in the game is the shop of the famous Shaban (photo at right). The copyright on the game has now reverted to its creator, Ted Hildebrandt, and he is making it available for free download. So if you’re hankering for a stroll down the historic narrow alleyways of Christian Quarter, minus the odors, you’re in luck. You can check out Hildebrandt’s page with the download (and lots more), get more information at Amazon, or take a look at Biblical Studies and Technological Tools to get some helpful instructions before downloading and installing the 550 MB file.
