Educational Games

First of all, let's be clear that we do understand "Educational Games" is an oxymoron.

That's not to say they're all bad. That's not to say the ones we carry are bad at all, as far as that goes. In fact, the ones we carry are awesome, because we at Exodus Books refuse to carry anything that's not awesome.

When we say "educational games" we're not talking about games that improve coordination, develop critical thinking skills, or teach colors and shapes. Those all have their place, but what we mean by educational games are those games that impart Factual Information.

The 10 Days in... games, for instance, teach world geography. Some Body helps players understand human anatomy. While Wars of the Roses isn't as obviously educational, players still learn about the important figures and events during that period of English history.

Learning is kind of a nice corollary benefit when it comes to games. Obviously we support education, but we also support having a good time and relaxing, and our game selection is intended to reflect that. If you really want your kids to be doing something "constructive" at all times, however, the games listed below are probably more along the lines of what you're looking for.

Review by C. Hollis Crossman
C. Hollis Crossman used to be a child. Now he is a husband and father, teaches adult Sunday school in his Presbyterian congregation, and likes weird stuff. He might be a mythical creature, but he's definitely not a centaur.Read more of his reviews here.
