This weekend, how can the kids and I spend our time better than playing:
- Political Machine 2008 (try explaining “special interest groups” to a seven-year-old)
- Liberty’s Kids (1776, from the perspective of Ben Franklin’s printing apprentice, among others)
- Sid Meier’s Civil War Collection
(sort of a stretch, I know, but the fate of the union was at stake)
- The Oregon Trail, 5th Edition (You have died of dysentery)
We don’t own a copy, but we always try to rent the musical 1776.
