  • There's one online called Wizard 101 - google it...
    It's not a blow-em up type of thing or a war type, but, they have some really cool stuff in it - if he likes Digimon, Pokemon and stuff like that - it has that kind of stuff for challenges where he beats the badguy the game is kinda setup like Harry Potter with a Pokemon twist but it's really cool. It's a 3d game that actually has you walking thru different areas, so, it's not like a boring card game.

  • Mine play Wii Sports a lot. They've gotten addicted to the fencing game - they compete to see who can put out the candle without cutting it or how many pieces of watermelon they can cut before it disappears.

    They also like Wii Fit (my 9 yo is better at yoga than I am!)

    They were hooked on Animal Crossing for awhile, and now they're bugging for a DS so they can get the island extension pack.
