    Game Review: IQ Six Pro

    Today I'm reviewing IQ Six Pro from Smart Games. We aren't traveling nearly as much this year as we did last year, but when we do, I like to tuck a compact non-digital game in my bag for the trip. IQ Six Pro is perfect for that.

    Review: U.S. History Detective, Book 1

    U.S. History Detective Book 1 focuses on American history from the time of the first European explorers interacting with Native Americans through the Reconstruction Era following the Civil War. I feel it would be perfect for a high school level Early American History course if you included a generous selection of corresponding historical novels and biographies.

    Review: Diamond Quest

    I haven't yet met a Smart Game I didn't like. However, Diamond Quest is one of my favorites so far. I love that it's an non-electronic game that helps strengthen thinking skills with challenges for all ages, from preschool through senior citizens.

    Game Review: IQ Circuit

    I'm a huge proponent of off-screen activities for road trips. It's hard to create family memories if everyone's focus is on their individual screens.
