Age is an important factor because of brain development. Age?

Card games are AWESOME!  Seriously, like poker type games.  We always teach our kids how to play poker around 5 years old.  It's not only adding/subtracting but patterns and strategy.  Plus, it's tons of fun!

We taught them Russian romey(sp?). We do play a lot of board games and card games. Chess was taught also. I downloaded the old school Oregon trail games that I played in elementary school and they love that game :)
