"Predator is very informative for adults and children alike to learn about the food chain. We are now on the second generation using the game, which we bought in 1989. My daughter, who is now 23, loved the "Death and Decay" card because it beats all animals! My grandson, aged 5, has continued in his mother's footsteps. This game is his favorite to play when he visits. When I get paid next, I plan to buy him his own copy and the Krill game, because he is really into sharks and other sea animals. Thanks for the years of fun and laughter with the Predator game."
"As a camp instructor at Tucson Botanical Gardens, I have used Onto the Desert for the past two years to illustrate the cycle of life in the Sonoran Desert. First, I presented the 2 player rules and allowed the students to play in pairs. Later we would play as a class. In each camp, I have been astounded to see how the kids come to form their own rules - putting limits on how many times certain cards can be used and establishing different scoring systems. All of these alternatives are isted in the game's instructions, but the students arrive at them independently. I just love how what starts as a lesson on ecology evolves into a depiction of teamwork and problem solving. The best part is that after I introduce the game, the campers ALWAYS ask for it the next day."
"I'm glad that I found Into the Forest, since I teach homeschool science. It's a great tool and fun way to learn about the food chain."
"Into the Forest was interesting and well thought out. The pictures and the lists of what the item ate and what ate it were very informative."
"I liked that Into the Forest could be used with so many ages. I used it during teaching science in middle school. I now use it with my grandchildren."
"Into the Forest was very much like the game I had envisioned in grad school for ecology: interesting, beautiful, not overly complicated. Sometimes the children and I just look and talk about the cards; they're great launching points for further discussion and research."
"How much do you know about the Antarctic sea life? Well, I didn't know too much about it until I played Krill. While it took some effort at first to figure out how to play - we were so clueless about krill and phytoplankton - once we learned how it worked we were hooked. After playing a few times we had to get some books out of the library on these animals. Before we knew it we were in the middle of a unit study! What a fun way to learn!"
