Super Genius Games, Addition or Multiplication
(Blue Orange Games $12.99 Score:)

Like all the Super Genius Games, there is always a match between any two cards. With the Addition game at least one sum on one card will match as equation on another card. Players must find a pair. Their Multiplication game works the same way. These are not for kids who are at the very beginning of learning to add or multiply. They are for that next level, when kids know their math facts but need to pick up speed. These are good games for reinforcing facts that kids eventually need to know instantaneously. The Super Genius reading cards are the same. Choose from First Words, all three letter words or Reading 1 and 2, with more complex words that kids match to pictures. Kids can play these cards solo or with an older player. These are not meant to be flash cards, but they do require a certain amount of fluency. Remember with beginners building confidence is as important as building competence. So, if this is stressful, put the cards away for a time. 6 & up

2015 Award
Super Genius Games, First Words and Reading 1 and 2
(Blue Orange Games $12.99 Score:)

Like all the Super Genius Games, there is always a match between any two cards. With First Words, the three letter words on one card will always have one word that matches a picture card with multiple pictures on it. It calls for visual perception and speedy reading to spot the pairs. A fun game after beginning readers have picked up ease with the vowels. They can play these cards solo or with an older player. These are not meant to be flash cards, but they do require a certain amount of fluency. Remember with beginners building confidence is as important as building competence. So, if this is stressful, put the cards away for a time. Super Genius Reading 1and 2 games work the same way but with longer words. Also, helpful, See Super Genius Addition and Multiplication. Players must find a pair of cards with an equation on one card and its equivalent on the other. Again this is not for kids who are at the very beginning of learning to add or multiply. They are for the time when kids know their math facts but need to pick up speed. These are games for reinforcing facts that kids eventually need to know instantaneously. 6 & up

2015 Award
Flipping Flags
(R&R Games $6.95 Score:)

A fun card game that is a lot more challenging than the typical concentration game. All the 60 flag cards are placed face down. Players take turns flipping cards and as two matches are found players must shout out and call the name of the country the matching flags represent. But wait, it's not that simple. There are three flags on each card, so there is a lot to look at and you know how similar some flags can be. Matching games are always fun and this one adds a new twist that challenges kids to note fine differences. Also, a great way to get kids to think about all the countries in the world and recognize their flags. A good stocking stuffer. 7 & up.

R&R Cup-A-Cup Game
(R&R Games $19.99 Score:)

You have to look, think and grab fast in this challenging game. Put the cups out on the table. Players roll the dice and they don't match the geometric or color on the top of the cups; just to opposite! They have to find the missing color or shape that would complete the set. Say you roll a blue square and yellow triangle. The missing color is red and the missing shape is roundóbe the first to grab it! A brain teaser for 3-8 players ages 6 & up.

Gamewright Outfoxed!
(Gamewright $17.99 Score:)

Our testers liked working together to catch the critter that stole Mrs. Plumpertís pot pie. Gathering clues as they moved around the board, they used the clue detector to eliminate possible thieves in this coperative game. It does call for an elaborate set up, but once the game begins itís anybodyís guess who done it! But work fast before the culprit escapes and you and your pals are outfoxed! Game play is about 15 minutes. For 2-4 players ages 5 & up.

Gamewright Flashlights & Fireflies
(Gamewright $15.99 Score:)

Imagine playing around with fireflies in the middle of winter or a sunny afternoon. True it will call for some imagination, as does this game in which players catch fireflies to power their flashlights. But watch out! There are bats, raccoons and other creatures of the night that might get in your way. It's of game of visual discrimination, deduction and pretend. First one to reach home wins. Our test family gave this high grades. Maybe no substitute for catching the real thing--but fun, nevertheless. Playtime is 20 minutes for 2-5 players. 6 & up.

Peaceable Kingdom Dinosaur Escape Game
(Peaceable Kingdom $17.99 Score:)

Dinosaurs are everywhere this season, thanks to the new Jurassic Park movie. For younger dino fans, this Dinosaur Escape game is a more age appropriate entertainment. In this cooperative game players work together to help the dinosaur escape to Dinosaur Island before the volcano can erupt. Each player has a dinosaur playing piece, a mover. It's a game that involves counting, memory and turn taking to find a dinosaur behind a fern in the same habitat as the dinosaur you are moving. If you roll a T-Rex, watch out! All dinosaurs in play must move back to a start space. If you roll a volcano you place one piece of the volcano in the stand. The object is to find all three lost dinosaur tokens before the fifth and final piece of the volcano is built. Each round takes about 10 minutes. For 2-4 players ages 4 & up.
