If you know us, we LOVE games at the Bentz Learning Laboratory! Imagine the excitement as a box arrives, and the eager children gather around to see what "goodie" it is this time... another handwriting workbook, math facts drill, latin? "No", I say - "it's just a game to try out". I was nearly knocked down by frantic children yelling..."pick me, pick me this time!".
Now you got a little peek into my world... let me introduce you to the product that caused this stampede of children - it's call Tri-Cross by Games for Competitors, a Father-Son duo from Atlanta (by the way, that is my oldest child's dream job!)
This game is a "cross" between - chess, checkers and Stratego, according to my sons who have not stopped playing it since it arrived.
For a quick "how to play" - watch this video -
One reason that it has been such a hit here, it's easy to learn, but challenging enough to keep teenage boys entertained. It's also a quick game to play (unlike some other strategy games that can take all day...).
