For kids. And kids at heart.
We review Spinderella, Treasure Trouble and Push-a-Monster, the three nominees for the Kinderspiel des Jahres, the best Children's Game of the Year, and try to predict the winner.
From magnetic spiders, wooden monsters and pirate chests full of booty, each nominated game highlights spatial awareness and concentration skills in vastly different ways.
Spinderella features magnetic spiders swooping down from a 3-D board to pick up ants. In Push-a-Monster, players slide wooden creatures onto a mini-table trying not to knock others off. Treasure Trouble puts players in charge of cramming a chest full of oddly shaped loot as fast as they can.
Tune in to learn about each game and see which one we think will walk away with the trophy this year!
