When the stuffed crust pizza first came out in my area, like everybody else we tried it. We found out quickly that the pizza makers had became so fascinated with the stuffed crust that they had forgotten the rest of the pizza. It was a lousy pizza.

That is what many makers of "educational games" do. They get fascinated with what they are trying to teach and forget about the "game." Games above all should be fun. On the other side teachers and parents ignore games that are meant just for fun and give them no educational merit. The game I blogged about
last week is a good example of this.

When looking for games for your kids or students make sure the games are entertaining enough to keep their interest. If not, they will not play enough to learn primary lesson.
