As gamers, we love what we do, but providing that same level of excitement we get when playing RPGs, video games or even chess to our kids can be a challenge. This new Baby Gamer Board Books series can help get them started right on their first quests.
Ascension is a fast paced deckbuilding game designed by Magic Pro Tour champions Justin Gary, Rob Dougherty, and Brian Kibler, with artwork by Eric Sabee. It’s a dynamic experience where players have to react and adjust their strategy accordingly. It’s a beloved game, and this is the tenth anniversary edition.
Continuing our series on fun toys for younger players, we turn to GEOMAG Supercolor Panels, an amazing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) based toy set that’s fun for anyone five-years-old and older.
The myFirst 3DPen essentially functions a lot like a glue gun, only it doesn’t get nearly as hot because instead of activating glue, it’s melting plastic filament so they can be drawn into colorful patterns. This is a clever way to make the art of 3D design accessible to almost anyone, even very young kids just starting out as budding artists.
The myFirst Sketch Book from Oaxis is an interactive drawing pad designed for children so they can design and doodle a masterpiece without needing their parent’s phone or tablet. Drawings can then be exported to a smartphone for final touch-up work.
Here at GiN we don’t just play video games. We celebrate games and toys of all kinds. This week, we review the magnetic stacking block system called Magicube from Swedish developer Geomag, which is designed to unlock the creative energy of young players.
Root Film is the latest visual novel set in the Root Letters universe, and adds a lot of unique elements, like a compelling murder mystery that you will try and solve as two different characters. Most players should enjoy the experience.
My First Camera 3 is a big upgrade from the older model we reviewed last year. Like that camera, this one is designed for kids, but is packed with enough features to keep adults happy too. We took the new model out for a shutterbug party around the block.
Play Like a Feminist is a surprisingly accessible scholarly book about the benefits women can experience when they allow themselves to play videogames just for the fun of it. Grab this book if you are a woman who wants to try gaming, or if you know someone who might.
Looking for a beautiful gaming distraction to close out your year? Our open world game reviewer has looked at them all in 2020, and is solidly declaring Ghost of Tsushima as the best. Sink into this wonderful game, which looks great even running on a PS4.
