Ah, let's go on a Walk in the Woods together... to observe beautiful things such as wild flowers and butterflies... to help each other gather goodies such as berries, nuts and herbs... to keep an eye out for nasty stuff such as poison ivy, biting bugs, even hot sun... to share our remedies to solve problems we meet... and to plan together where to look next for more goodies and remedies! Let's have a great day in the Woods and come home with our baskets full of goodies, our minds deeply quiet, and our hearts nourished with natural things. Includes: 12 x 12" board, dangers, remedies, goodies, look-ats, baskets, rules for basic and hard games.
Our customers say: "Our kids play it over and over. I like the way it nurtures careful observation, clear thinking, memory skills and sharing." - Montreal, Canada
Play as friends, not as enemies! Family Pastimes games foster the spirit of cooperation. Players help each other climb a mountain, make a community, complete a space exploration... They never play against each other. After all, the initial impulse to play a game is social; that is, we bring out a game because we want to do something together. How ironic then that in most games, we spend all our efforts trying to bankrupt someone, destroy their armies - in other words, to get rid of one another!
At Family Pastimes we believe that people of different ages and abilities should be able to play side by side, each making their best contribution. We are all there together when we finish the game to take joy in our successes and wonder how we might work together even better the next time we play. Thus, Family Pastimes games will prove to be a friendly form of fun. Socialization, entertainment, academic learning, character growth, etc. - whatever your objectives, we invite you to realize them by cooperative means. We hope you enjoy playing and learning together!
