Review of My Products

In our Marco Polo Silk Road game, we might make it through the desert without meeting disaster!

"My 6th grade homeschoolers LOVE this game. It's been set-up for multiple days so they can try different strategies out. A nice addition to our study. Thanks!"

"I played this game with a child that finds learning her times tables very hard and stressful but she loved this game! She's getting better each time we play so it's becoming a regular thing. I will definitely use this in small groups with my classes."
