'How to Write a Story'

This book/game was amazing! It gave us so many different choices as to what the story could be about. I think at one time we had three different stories going on. The first night we opened it up, we played for at least an hour, which, to me, is a long time to keep an active 8-year-old on the floor doing one specific thing! Haley loved the game. I think it allows the kids to use their imagination in so many ways. This is definitely a piece that has a permanent spot on the coffee table. - Lacey Goodmote of Wellsburg

I was skeptical about this game at first, but that just goes to show you how I don't think like a child. It's a race to see who can get the right combinations of colored "molecules" (balls) into the test tubes first, without touching the balls with your hands! So you "pour" the balls into the different tubes, until they are arranged perfectly. It requires some strategy - visualizing what needs to be done and how to do it - reminescent of chess. But My 10-year-old loves it. This game is for ages 8 and up, but some savvy 7-year-olds should be able to keep up. A game can be played in 15 minutes (a plus in my book). - Betsy Bethel, OV Parent editor
