Robot Turtles: the board game that teaches preschoolers to program

Would you believe that I got so excited about the project that I forgot to post it to my own blog?!

I launched a game on Kickstarter called  Robot Turtles.  You can see the video on the right hand side of my blog, or view it here on Kickstarter.  I’m humbled and amazed by the response – as of now, six days in, it’s at $188,000, or about seven times what I’d hoped to raise.

I want to get this in the hands of as many eager grownups as I can, because having played it, it’s just an amazing way to interact with kids.  So if you’re thinking of something for a son, daughter, niece, nephew, grandchild, or kid next door – for a present, for Christmas, or just because they’re cool – I would appreciate it if you’d give it a look!

And please share the Kickstarter page on your favorite social networks – right now, more people have found it by email and social network referrals than anything else.  Orders go in to the printer Sept 27 and then it goes out of print, so I hope you have time to get a copy!

And for those readers who are already backers: thank you, thank you, thank you for making this project a success!
