    Review: Postman Observation Game

    Did you ever try to play a board game with a 3-year-old? Were you just bored out of your mind with the banality of it? Or did you let them win?

    Review: Turing Tumble

    What in the world is a Turing Tumble? you might ask. Well, you might. Because I did. Turns out it's a logic game named after Alan Turing. According to Wikipedia he is "widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence."
