Posted Mar 09 2012 12:00am
Hello there! If you are new here, you might want to for updates on this topic.
I wish I made time to play more games with my children. There never seems to be enough time at home to commit to one. Sometimes it is easier to make time to play games when traveling, as household chores are not beckoning and idle time is more prevalent.
Truly Amazing. There is always one, and only one, matching symbol between any 2 cards in this game. Spot it and you win. There are only 8 symbols on each card, but 2 matching symbols may be different sizes. This challenge increases as new cards are quickly revealed in this fast-paced game. Spot it contains four fast, challenging mini-party games in which all players play simultaneously. The Tower, The Well, The Hot Potato, and The Poisoned Gift can be played in any order, or you can just play your favorites. The bottom line is, have fun. Designed for all ages and packaged in a travel-size tin, Spot it. has colorful, appealing symbols on high-quality, glossy card stock. With fast action and endless fun, this unique card game is sure to be a splash at your next party and to become a family favorite. Spot it develops visual perception and matching skills. It supports quick mental processing and sharpens cognitive skills in a fun atmosphere. The symbols are universal and easy to remember but the variety of imagery will challenge any eye.
Games don’t need to be overtly academic to be educational, however. Just by virtue of playing them, board games can teach important social skills , such as communicating verbally, sharing, waiting, taking turns, and enjoying interaction with others. Board games can foster the ability to focus, and lengthen your child’s attention span by encouraging the completion of an exciting, enjoyable game.
I do prefer cooperative games and do think that winning should not be overpraised or valued greatly. It’s about process not end result.
