It’s not quite a board game, definitely not a video game, and a whole lot of fun! It plays very quickly and works for any number of players (ages 10+ – can be slightly younger if simple spelling of words is not frustrating). Show Me the Kwan is a fast-paced, dice rolling, word game. Given the chosen category the players must call out fitting words where either the first, second or last letter correspond to the lettered dice that were rolled. Each dice has an assigned point value. At the end of the 1 minute round, all players must count their points on the dice they collected.

What does every child want? An I Pad? Xbox? Maybe, but what is the one thing that every child wants, needs and deserves? Introducing Time in a Box, (MSRP $17.95 for 2 players ages 6 and up).

Time in a Box includes a simple written agreement between you and the child that sets the ground rules by which you’ll both abide.
