"Mapmaker, Mapmaker find me a find, map me a map" Ok. That's not how the song goes, but it sounds good! This summer I was able to attend GenCon virtually. It was a different experience, but I enjoyed it: no crowds, no traffic, no insane heat outside when finding something to eat. One of the… Continue reading Mapmaking can be fun!
A summertime treat of a game!
Remember the warm days of summer by playing this cool ice cream sundae themed game.
I am part of a group on Facebook that is filled with fellow gameschoolers. It's a great place to learn about different games and find out what might be the best game for a particular topic or age. The group is also an enabling site, making me feel like I need to own all the games.… Continue reading Don’t Panic!
Kitties can be Magical

It's a great solo game, offering spacial skills as well as fine motor skills for balancing. He didn't necessarily… Continue reading It’s been one week…
So many games!!
I knew there would be lots of games to see and play at Origins, but once we were there and saw everything, it was mind blowing! We went down on Friday and again on Sunday so that I could meet with some of publishers. We were able to try out a few games on Friday:… Continue reading So many games!!
Simple but fun
The weather around here has been absolutely crazy. We seem to be experiencing all of the seasons in a week. It makes planning outdoor school lessons difficult. I don’t mind too much though, because then it means there is more time to be inside and play games! We have been playing some games we have… Continue reading Simple but fun
