Product Description:

This is not your average board game. Yes, there are cute playing pieces, obstacles and rules, but everyone plays the game until the end AND learns programming fundamentals along the way! The game is played by 1-4 "Turtle Masters" who are trying to get their turtle to the matching jewel on the grid-like game board. In the most basic game play, the players lay out action cards for their turtle, and the parent (or older sibling) acts as "Turtle Mover" and acts out the turtle's movement on the game board. As players get comfortable with the game, you can add "unlockables" to the game board obstacles like ice walls, stone walls and crates. Turtles must work around each of these obstacles in a different way. As players advance, there are options for upping the ante, like having players lay out all of their action cards in a complete "program," then moving the turtle across the board all at once and seeing if he ends at the jewel. Created by a computer programmer and dad, this is a unique way to show kids how programming works in a fun and visual way! For 2-5 players. Jess

The 5- to 8-year-olds in our homeschool coop played this and enjoyed it; it seems like a great gift for my 5-year-old nephew, especially since both his parents are in tech jobs.

I can't wait! I like the idea of teaching coding/instructional concept through a medium other than a computer. I think my toddler and preteen will both benefit from this.

Good Intro
My kid loves this. Requires a good bit of parental (or older sibling) involvement but really is a fun way to introduce basic computer logic.

Kids ask to play everyday
My 3 and 5 year olds love this game. They ask for it all the time. There are "levels" to it so as the understand the game you can make more difficult. It is not competitive and they get to "control" you (the parent) as the turtle mover. WARNING: game calls for you (the parent) to make silly sound effects for the turtles so be prepared.
