My family loves to play games. With the additional electronics we have in our home, we have been looking for more ways to connect and have fun through them as well. I was really excited to try the new iPieces Games from Pressman Games as they looked like fun. I was right!
The first game we tried out was Air Hockey. My 8 year old and I have so much fun with this game and often wager clearing the dishes from the table as part of the winning the tournament (let’s just say that mom seems to have gotten the short end of the stick on that deal as she beats me nearly every single time)! It was a little difficult to control when we first started, but once we realized that we had to keep constant connection with the iPad, it worked much, much better. There were not too many instructions provided, but then again, what do you need to lean about playing air hockey?
We also tried Snakes and Ladders. This games is similar to one most of you know – Chutes and Ladders. The difference is, when you land on spaces with a ladder image, you lay a ladder piece on the board to connect you with the space above. However, if you land on a space with a snakes head, you slide down his body to a lower numbered location. This was a fun one as 4 of us were able to play at one time — from my 4 year old up through my 8 year old. They really enjoyed it and it is has been a fun one for them as well.
This is a great gift idea for someone and a way to bring back those family game nights — with a touch of technology. Our family is always looking to embrace technology (as it is here to stay) and find ways to help us keep up with the ever changing world, without losing sight of what is important — being together and enjoying one another.
