Review:
Somehow we as parents have forgotten that toys don't have to beep, talk to us or do all the work. This inventive, uncomplicated and imaginative kit includes simple, durable elements: a game board with two blank sides, a blank spinner, a blank deck of cards, pop out shapes, three blank dice of different sizes and a glue stick - enough pieces and supplies to create two games; it even has a carrying case. Testers spent time plotting and planning, thinking about what makes a game fun, laying it all out and then putting it all together. After spending two days creating the games, we all got to play. Players created their own rules sheet; tweaking and perfecting the rules as game play progressed. A thought provoking and innovative way to play and learn.
