Are you game?

Although video games have become enormously popular with kids (an understatement, I know), board games are still a strong category, especially among families looking for quality together-time activities. Testament to this is the games section at Toy Fair each year, with several aisles teeming with passionate, small companies often hawking a single product. Even on a professional level, it’s relatively easy to design and publish a game. A simple google search yields dozens of informational sites and companies eager to assist.

Now, Winning Moves has made it even easier with their new Make-A-Game Set. The box includes a game board, dice, 16 token pieces, a pad of play money, customizable cards and a detailed how-to book. There’s more than enough materials here to bring just about any great idea to life.

This is a great gift idea for kids, but it has other good possibilities, too. Parents and kids can collaborate to design a family-themed game and give it to grandparents or other family members. Older kids can do the same for their parents. Or parents can design a game especially for their kids. I love the potential here. Just try to invent a game that will be as much fun to play as it was to create.
