    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 families worldwide.

    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.
