Our family loves Out of the Box games. We've also posted a number of
video reviews of their games and were able to meet Al a couple years ago as he
was passing through our city. He's a great guy and very down to earth.
It's great to see the success he's had doing something worthwhile for
We played all sorts of games as a family--yard games, board games, sports of all
types, numerous outdoor activities--and attending church as a family. We were
one of the first families in the community to obtain a television. The
programming back then was exceptional and educational; and the sit-coms were
entertaining. Even those programs that were less idealistic than others were
less tainted with the extreme sex and violence content so prevalent in
today's programming.The important thing was not the games, the
programming, the picnics. It was the bonding. I think we can still get a bit of
that from worthwhile videos, cell phones, and social media. But I worry that
some are missing out on the personal contact families can enjoy together. And
it's much better to get a wide variety of experiences than text, longboard,
or video-game 24/7 365.
I'm grateful that such a publisher can stay in business in our hedonistic
world. Are any of his games published in other languages? Teachers would
really snap them up.
