... I am a sucker for games and I found some that I think are extraordinary...Generally, there are four new games. Two for Ancient History and two for Medieval Times. They are patterned after the vintage games of Concentration and Go Fish. I like these for the artistry, the simplicity and familiarity of the games, the historical value and perspective, and the reasonable price. Students using my series will easily identify most of Mr. De Gree's illustrated objects and places like Stonehenge, King Tut's golden mask, the Great Wall of China, and a Roman aqueduct. The "cards" for the Concentration/Memory Game are actually thick cardboard tiles, which are durable and easier for little ones to manipulate. The Go Fish card set gives you other game ideas that will be fun for all ages.
I could go on and on, because like I said, I'm a sucker for games and it's not easy to find quality ones for world history that even younger students can enjoy. I think the Classical Historian has done a great job. You may want to spice up your studies now, or save these for Christmas. Either way, I think they're great for review and the pure pleasure of having fun.
