Clarenville, July 27, 2008 – Actus Tale and Wordigy Jr. have recently been awarded the 2008 Creative Child Awards by Creative Child Magazine, a Nevada-based publication.
Tale has received the 2008 Preferred
Choice Award (Interactive Family Games category) while Wordigy Jr. has
won the 2008 Seal of Excellence Award
(Interactive Family Games category). A panel of over 50 moms and educators
played and reviewed many games last May at
just submitted our games hoping to get some feedback from game testers.
Receiving these prestigious awards is totally unexpected. We’re very happy and
we’ll take these awards any time,” says Dr.
Last year, Actus Tale was also named as Washington Post’s Top Pick for 2007. It’s a fun card game created to help players recognize and express emotions in a safe and comfortable setting. Wordigy Jr., a challenging word game, is the junior version of the original Wordigy that received the 2006 Adding Wisdom award.
Both games are made of cards so families can bring the fun to parties, camps, family gatherings, class reunions or get-togethers, and church activities.
