Educational Kids game

Post: # 54042Post Organic_Linker »

Hello all,

I have just put the finishing touches on a little game that i have written based on the top trumps game, and wondered what all the parents out there thought?

the link to my site www.organiclinker.com/trumps

Its fruit and veg based :flower:

We have had a look and a quick go - my OH knows too much about the good stuff in fruit and veg but even he was surprised about the vit C in broccoli!!! It looks to be a good game and we are certainly going to put the kids onto it!!! Its principle is simple, it looks atractive, its interesting and has quite a few surprises - well done you!!! I think I'll point it out to school too - could be a very useful educational/discussion tool
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

My six year old is doing food at school so planning to give the link to his class teacher. He did get upset when the game said it looked like he was cheating though.

Hi
I was enjoying it until it told me I was trying to cheat. I wasn't - honest!

I agree, i need to adjust the way it deals with "cheating"

I did it in an attempt to stop people using the back button to "try again". But sometimes it seems to not reset this when you deal again.

As an update there will be 10 new cards added today, plus, now all of the nutritional values are FSA approved :)

thanks for the feedback and apologies for upsetting the "wee 'un" :oops:

this has now been updated with a new look site :)

As an aside, we are investigating producing real cards, is this something any parents out there might be interested in?

thanks
