Tick, tock, tick, tock... ding! It must be time to learn a game about learning to tell the time. This ingenious board game for two to four players will do the tick, er, trick. The colorful 19-inch square board has a spiral path, with divisions that illustrate your day's activities, from getting up and washing to winding down and going to bed. Using game pieces, a clock face with movable hands, and a special time die marked with varying intervals, players move around the board and perform a variety of tasks that are described in the accompanying spiral-bound flip book. The game teaches digital and analog time telling. --Richard Farr

The Timing It Right Game is designed to enhance children's digital and analog time-telling skills as they make their way through a busy day on the game board. Kids learn to add time in increments; the roll of the special six-sided minute die determines how far a player will advance in a given turn--5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 1.5 hours, or 2 hours. Players move their game piece accordingly and then set the hands on the analog clock face to match the digital time shown on the space they occupy. The Time Table flip book is used to check the accuracy of the analog clock. This is a creative, interactive way to develop and reinforce time-telling skills, and it encourages associative thinking by helping children establish the relationship between times of day and specific activities. The Timing It Right Game was a Family Fun Award finalist in 1998. --Alison Golder has been an educator of children and adults of all shapes and sizes, from preschool through college levels.
