  1. I know there is a thread on what games you were giving this year, but I figured we could use a thread for reviewing them. My mom got us Chomp (Gamewrights). There are some scenarios not well-defined in the rules, but the game is fun. No reading required. The smallboys love it. 4yo is REALLY good at it. Clue (I think it’s not challenging enough with the new extra cards, but I like the 2-player variation) is a big hit. I expected my 9yo to love the mystery aspect and my 12yo to like the strategy, and sure enough, that’s exactly what happened. 12yo begged to play multiple times yesterday. This brought back so many memories from my childhood, even the dimensions of the board. Scarlett even still goes first. We set up Forbidden Desert and started going through the rules; it looks great, but 9yo had a headache and decided he wanted to go to bed, so we shall try it later. My smallboys keep wanting to “play†Pyramix because of the cool board, but we haven’t actually learned the rules yet, so they’re just tumbling the pieces around. 15yo DD seemed especially enthused at Timeline, and they were all thrilled to see Codenames Pictures. My mom also found us a couple of vintage card games that we haven’t tried yet but which look good. As you play this year’s games, tell us what you think!
  2. I'm one of those people in the "I have no willpower" thread who wants to play more (board) games and doesn't get around to them as often as I'd like, so I thought I'd start a thread. You can do the board game challenge: http://my-little-poppies.com/board-game-challenge/ Or you can just play games, talk about them here, w/e, the idea is to have fun and play more games. :)
  3. If anyone is looking for some little games to improve kids' musical literacy and knowledge, have a look at this list: http://cornerstoneconfessions.com/2012/08/the-ultimate-list-of-online-music.html I haven't looked at all the links, but from what I have seen it looks like the list is mostly geared toward younger students.
  4. I remember reading a thread where people were commenting on things they used to help their kids memorize multiplication facts. A few people mentioned some games they played that helped their kids. I can't find that thread now but I was wondering if anyone had any game suggestions. Thanks!
  5. So I have some extra money to spend for next year, and I've loaded up on science stuff and history books, but I don't have any fun history extras. I don't have my Activity Guide yet, so I don't have it to reference and look through. What kinds of extra projects, toys, games, etc., have you used and loved for Medieval History? I'll have a 3rd grade boy and 5th grade girl using them. The 5th grader is the one who loves history. This year they loved excavating a pyramid and doing Chinese calligraphy. They weren't huge fans of the Figures From Ancient History. Those got old very fast. Thanks for your help!! Amanda
  6. I just discovered this game app for my new tablet (Samsung Galaxy) and I'm in love. It's a beautifully done puzzle type game called The Room. Reminds me of Riven or Myst, only on a smaller scale (it all takes place in one room with a series of boxes). Graphics are lovely and puzzles are fun without being super hard. The story-line is a bit silly. I could definitely do without that part. I guess the developers felt it was necessary, but I don't think so. I don't think I needed it to solve any of the puzzles. I just finished the first game and am doing the (free) Epilogue. I'll probably buy Room 2 when I'm done. Thought I'd let others, who enjoy these types of games, know about it. It is Christmas break after all. :D edited to add: I should mention that it did give me some grief with freezing up my tablet. I just had to reboot. It didn't happen all the time, but enough to be annoying.
  7. What board or other type games do your children this age like to play?
  8. Does any have this game? http://www.amazon.co...=pd_sim_sbs_t_1 Likes, dislikes? Would it be good for a high schooler and a 7th grader? Worth the $? thanks Carolyn
  9. I sat down to play a game with my 11, 8, 7 & 6 year old and realized that we have older games for kids 9+ and real little games like candy land. What are some good family games that can include everyone where my 11 yr and 6 yr can both enjoy.
  10. what other games can I add to our collection? I'm Christmas shopping and since we play a lot of board games here, I'm always on the hunt for something new and fun. My boys are 5 and 8. Blokus is a family favorite. We also like card games such as Uno and Skipbo. Monopoly (several versions) Sequence (several versions) Checkers and Chess (to the point where I don't care to see those games out of the cabinet for quite a while!) word games are out, but "thinking" games are ok.
  11. We've never been much of a board game playing family. Not sure why. Addicted to our old, boring habits I guess. Well, that's about to change! I'm planning ahead for our first camping trip in the trailer, and want to stock a few games. I have Monopoly, Scrabble, and a few card games. Any suggestions so we don't just sit at the camp site staring at each other? :001_huh: :lol:
  12. When I was a kid, I had learning disabilities that made it difficult for me to learn to read. I was lucky that my mom was a reading instruction expert who had developed dozens of games for teaching reading. OpenReading is my project to pay it forward by bringing those teaching games online and making software that monitors each student, and personally adapts to his or her reading level and learning pace. We are just getting started and a lot more content is on the way, but my mom and I could really use your feedback. http://openreading.org/ The program incorporates phonics and whole language teaching strategies. We have started with basic phonics and have music videos, teaching videos and games that cover all all basic letter sounds. Thank you, - Keenan
  13. I know there have been some threads off and on about different games, mostly math it seems, but give me all of your favorite, hands down, best educational games. I have been incorporating a ton more games into our days, and everything is so much better. The girls are learning, I am less stressed, life is good. We have been doing some math games, and I have a few logic games. Any other games you all just love. Right now, we are big on Money Bags, and Sum Swamp. Thanks all.
  14. In thinking about Easter and goodies and gifts... I thought I could get a game for everyone to enjoy instead of gifts for each one... and then make some goodies and color eggs and buy a few treats. What is a fun game that lots of us could play? In the past we played bunco... we play dice sometimes... we can have a ping pong tournament... I want to make the teens keep electronics and systems off for a solid 24-36 hour period... Thanks for some ideas!
  15. I'm looking to beef up our game selection...tell me what you love to play with family and friends. :D Thanks!
  16. My 5 year old son loooooooves learning by playing games. Recently, we bought Rush Hour Jr. and a mobile tangrams game and he can not get enough of them. Any favorite learning games out there for the 5 - 7 year old age range? Thanks so much! Leslie
  17. DD is 4. She is Rush Hour Jr and River Crossing already. We've had Rush Hour for only a few days and she already is over 1/2 way done. River Crossing is more challenging but we are making our way through..usually only 1 or 2 puzzles a day as opposed to the never ending "can I do more Rush Hour please mom please please please pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease" lol. I saw Logic Links recommended in another thread. I have also thought about Qwirkle. She's not reading yet so it is a little challenging since she loves challenging logic games but can't play independently per se.
  18. My husband and my 14 and 11 year olds play Rummikub and Catan. A lot. I would like to find a new game for them all for Christmas. They also play Clue on occasion, but I think the advantage of Rummikub is that they can fit in a quick game here and there without devoting an afternoon to it. My 11 yo, especially, loves Rummikub, and it is the game they play at which she is pretty equally competitive with her sister and dad. So what is like Rummikub but not Rummikub? Here are the games I know will not do; *Word games such as Quiddler, as the 14 yo trounces them, and it's no fun for my 11 yo. *Set, which we love, be we are all too competitive. Set is just stressful. *Monopoly, Life, we have, but they are too long to stand in for Rummikub. *We have Apples to Apples. Any suggestions? Terri
  19. Do you have any favourite sites with division games? I'm looking for something that will cement division skills in an older student… so preferably nothing that screams "this is for little kids!" ;)
  20. Vocabulary books are boring, especially to 3 grammar stage boys. Do any of you have vocabulary games that you play? I thought about making index cards, sticking the words to the wall, giving the boys the definitions and making them race to match them. That idea is still being molded, but I figure there is someone out there who has found something fun. Thank you!!
  21. I want games that require at least some strategy, not just pure luck. We have Connect Four, Mancala, Scrabble Slam, Blink, Cinq-o, and others, but we are looking for something new for 2 or more players. ETA: Players will be ages 12 & up.
  22. Or maybe not even board games but card games? We've been playing Ticket to Ride Europe a lot, but I think dd is ready to move onto something else. Anything of about that level, girl-friendly, no violence... Are any of the other games from that company good? Are the expansion kits fun? Anything else?
  23. Need to make up an Amazon order quickly-no time to plow through old threads-thanks! We have recently LOVED Scrambled States of America and want more fun ones to play!
  24. What are you/your kid's favorite addition games for beginning addition (computer, card games etc.)? I know about addition war. Just wanting to collect some ideas so that we can have fun while mastering addition. Thanks! :)
