Remember that "Password" TV show when you were a kid? Well, bring that up to date with cool "decoder cases" and "password cards", but keep the old fashioned word play, and you've got a great game that clearly supports elementary reading skills. This game is best played in two teams of two each. Each team gets a set of "password cards"; one team member sees the words using the "decoder," and must give clues until a partner guesses the word. "Password" builds reading, vocabulary, and teamwork skills. Note: This game is quite challenging for its youngest players. Make sure you check out the extra directions for the adaptation, "Password Junior". (Endless Games, 4-6 players, $11.99)
