Laser Maze Logic Game: Pew-zle
Thanks to one of my friends’ addiction to board games – we call him the chairman of the board now – I’ve rediscovered how fun they can be.

Robot Turtles Board Game Introduces Kids to the World of Programming
Sometimes I see the kinds of toys being sold in stores today and I worry. Baby dolls that come with a diapered monkey pet, pole dancer dolls (apparently, these really do exist!), shopping spree board games… Don’t get me wrong, these toys are probably fun and your kid will most likely love them.

Elemensus Periodic Table Spelling Game: ScRaBBL
Here’s a board game that teaches you language and chemistry at the same time. It’s called Elemensus. It plays a lot like Scrabble, except you use symbols of the elements instead of just letters to form words.

Cat Replaces Iron: I Can Has Monopoly

Cat Replaces Iron: I Can Has Monopoly

Guts Man Operation: It Takes a Very Steady Hand!
Perhaps it was because it gave me the chance to pretend I was a surgeon at age 10, or maybe it was just the risk of tiny shocks that made Operation one of my favorite childhood games.
