Another Game...

July 20th, 2008 at 09:12 am

I guess we have been on a game kick, as we realize BM is quite adept at playing many of our favorite family games.

So my dad got all excited and brought out SET over the weekend. I know BM is rather smart for his age, but he kicked our butts. LOL. I looked at my dad and said, "I think this is a game where kids are better than adults." Indeed, it is.

But anyway, I think it is more rare and I wanted to share.

They do sell on Amazon.

A very nerdy/genius type friend showed us this game, probably when I was in high school.

My dad enjoys it so much he made a computer program of it. OF course, he said he would give us a copy, but we need a LARGE computer screen. Which we don't have.

I doubt it is something we'll see at the garage sales, but we'll keep an eye out. We may buy it new down the road.

But it is a really good thinking game for kids. & yes, they do quite well with it. I am even impressed they recommend for ages 6 and up. Seems like we have been playing so many games with both our kids that are recommended ages 7 & up. You just roll your eyes. The 4-year-old loves all these games... So SET is a little more realistic on the age level, but I think most 5-year-olds would enjoy it as well.

Oh. I also found an online version to try...

    It's a difficult/challenging game indeed, but young'ns love it!

    I've never heard of it, but will have to check it out.

    Growing up, my family was really big into games - especially board games and some card games (especially Rook). Two unusual games we had were Acquire (similar to Monopoly) and Twixt.

    Playing games together as a family is such an awesome tradition, as well as a great way to teach many life long skills. Or also produce a great many laughs when one of the adults isn't exactly a great sport when losing badly in a game of Scrabble (i.e. My mom.) Smile
