I’m not a big video game guy, but I really love Bookworm Adventures. It’s a cartoony, Scarbble-esque game where you combat literary-themed enemies (Cyclops, Dracula, etc.) by making words out of random letters. The better the word, the more powerful the attack.
A few nights ago I played a bit with some of my kids gathered around me, and we made quite a team. Fun fr the whole family!
There’s plenty of humor in the game, and there’s even a sequel that’s heavy on science fiction.
Totally worth it, especially if you live around here, where the library has it for free!
