Now that it’s summer, I have more free time to relax and just hang out. However, that also means I am more likely to get bored. Haha! One of the things I have discovered I enjoy doing in my free time is playing brain teaser games. I think they are fun because they require me to think a little while having fun (versus just clicking buttons).
One of my new favorites games is the Mosaic Tomb of Mystery. It is a game where you try to match up different shapes to fit a particular pattern. When you complete one, you receive another clue about the death of King Tut! So, you have to try to figure out which way to place the shapes while attempting to figure out the mystery!
I love the added aspect of history to the game. As you know, one of my teaching endorsements is in middle school social studies. So, I was pleased to see even a little mention of history in a game. I feel that this game is fun enough to get people interested in ancient Egypt and perhaps curious enough to do their own research. I wouldn’t mind using the game in my future classroom as a reward for students since it does make them think and it could peak their interest in history. Plus, it’s actually a fairly inexpensive game. So, it’s a good deal I think.
Now, two lucky readers will have the opportunity to try out a game from the same site I downloaded this game from. This would be great for those with children home from school during the summer, bored college students, or adults who want to do something new that doesn’t require you to be online the whole time.
