    Play a fast-paced, cattywampus thinking game that will sharpen your visual, spatial, number, and thinking skills while having lots of fun. Every player gets 12 diamond-shaped tiles, and each tile has colored pie-slice shapes with numbers at each point. Challenge chips are placed in the middle of the table, and everyone works simultaneously to conquer the challenges a sum less than 12, even numbers, two colors, same color more than 30, etc. Place your tiles appropriately to match your colors or numbers to complete as many challenge chips as possible in each round. Play for 3 rounds and the person with the most points wins. The instructions show several variations to the game there is more than one way to look at each challenge!

    If I were to give you these four clues "Elijah," "Esau," "Jacob" and "Nazarites," could you tell me which one didn't belong? How about the connection between the other three? Not one of those feel-good, easy-cheesy Bible games with answers like "church" or "pew," this game will have you dredging the trenches of your memory looking for solid (and many times obscure!) facts straight from the pages of the Bible. Fun and educational, it works like this - the board features a triangle-shaped track with 30 spaces along which players move forward for correct answers, but may have to, in certain situations, move backwards for incorrect answers. Players are given four clues, and they must decide, for 1 point, which of the four doesn't belong, and for 3 points, the connection between the other three. They must always answer in this order; players cannot get points or name the connection without first eliminating the one that doesn't fit. If a player answers both parts correctly, they continue to get questions until they answer part of a question incorrectly. Bonus points are available for the next player to "steal" that question. "Give" and "Take" questions add an extra element to the game; if the player receiving a question doesn't know the answer (and thinks another player may not either!), they can slap down one of their "Give" cards and assign it to them. If that player doesn't answer both parts correctly, they must move backwards four spaces, but if they do answer correctly, they move forward four. If it's not your turn, but you know the answer and the receiving player hesitates, slap down your "Take" card and shout out your answer. If you get it right, move forward 4 spaces, but be careful - if you don't answer the whole thing correctly, you move backwards 4 spaces! With 500 double-sided cards, for a total of 1000 questions, players will be scrambling to study their Bible before the next play date! References for each fact are given at the bottom of each card in italics if you'd like to research anything. (Oh, do you want to know the answer to the puzzle – or have you already figured it out? The one that doesn't belong is "Jacob" – because the other three are hairy.). For 3-6+ players, game time is approximately 40 minutes. ~ Megan

       This easy-to-play card game can be enjoyed by the whole family. The concept is similar to that of Rack-O (arrange your number cards in ascending order) with some exceptions. Set with a train theme there are some abilities cards that can change the course of play. Begin by having each player lay out their dealt cards in a line (1 locomotive and 7 railcars). There is a variety of railcars, which just makes the game more visually appealing – coal cars, carriers, tankers, etc. Numbers on the cards are written like a puff of smoke – very cute! Throughout the game of drawing and discarding, players may draw an abilities card that lets them swap cards, move cards, or remove cards. For 2 to 4 players, the first person to get their numbered train cars in ascending order wins. Play is fairly quick (20 to 30 minutes) and can be played by anyone who recognizes numbers and proper sequencing. Some strategizing might help you win the game more quickly. The set consists of 88 cards (4 locomotives and 84 railcars) and an instruction sheet. ~ Donna

    If you like color-by-number puzzles, but want something a little more complex, then these pixelated images of plants, animals, and other scenes are perfect. The small pixels require precision and many of the 101 puzzles feature a color key with nearly 20 different colors, so it’s a good idea to have a large pack of colored pencils ready. Full-color answers are included in the back, along with the original photographs. 160 pgs.

    This would be a fun book for an older sibling to do with a younger sibling. The spiral bound book has 301 illustrated questions tackling key phonics concepts for beginning readers such as letters, vowels, rhyming, hard & soft sounds and blends. Read the questions out loud and ask the little kiddo to point to, name or complete the answer. As you lay the book open, the questions are on the left and answers are on the right – so the design intends for you to fold it over to see only the questions. Questions become harder as you progress through the book. Colorful photos and illustrations on every page make it even more fun! This is a good pick up & put down as needed item to have on hand. Make the most of those in-between moments! pb, 192 pp, 7"x9" (excluding the spiral binding) ~ Sara
