  1. Ok. Idea.

    A Where in the World is Carmen Sandiago style board game. Included is a deck of cards with clues from Carmen and missions from the chief, but for a buck or two more you can buy the iPad/Tablet App. Stand the tablet up next to the board to see the same clue and missions but from Actors playing characters from the game. Relive the best parts of the old TV Shows!

    • That’s a great idea, it’s functional and adds another legitmate layer to the game! Thanks for posting!

  2. Ever played Michael Gray’s “Omega Virus”? Awesome game with an electronic component that is REALLY the heart of the game. Lots of great ideas in that game, too. If it were made today, there might be a little more of a co-op element in there, but it’s fun the way it is.
