Spin'n a Row

Spring 2016 Games
Ages: 3 & Up
Price: $11.95

Appealing to look at and manipulate, this all-inclusive tic-tac-toe game asks players to take turns rotating one ball at a time to get three in a row. The design of this game is refreshing. The red egg carton styled "board" houses the black and white X and O spheres. The pieces move, but won't get lost. Small enough to toss in a bag but big enough for little fingers eager to play. Adults can play with children easily and ours often reach for it to play with visiting grownups. It's a simple and fun way to introduce strategy, planning, predicting, and cause and effect.
