The critically-acclaimed board game
consists of tough questions about the nuances of the English language.
In Hebrew Sitna means "animosity" and Rehoboth means "space".
Genesis 26:20 - And the herdmen of Gerar strove with Isaac's herdmen,
saying: 'The water is ours.' And he called the name of the well
Esek; because they contended with him.
26:21 And they digged another well, and they strove for that
also. And he called the name of it Sitnah.
26:22 And he removed from thence, and digged another well; and
for that they strove not. And he called the name of it
Rehoboth; and he said: 'For now the LORD hath made room for
us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.'
