Two classic games, Charades and Go Fish, come together with hilarious results in this simply fantastic little card game. Players try to collect the most matching cards, but they're not just any old cards--each one depicts a monkey making a funny face. And, you can't just ask your neighbor for the card like regular Go Fish--you've got to act out the silly gestures depicted. The game play is loads of fun, but it's not just monkey business: modeling and identifying expressions is a key skill for kindergarteners meeting lots of new friends this year. An affordable game for silly monkeys everywhere. (Patch, $8.21)
