Roman Town Dig-it Games - Contest and Review

I've seen the little trinkets at the museums where we can get the block the kids can dig out the dino bones or the rocks that melt in water and a surprise is inside. But this is the best I've seen yet to get the kids attention AND be educational at the same time. I recommend this for anyone age 7 and up - perfect for those who are inquisitive and anyone who has projects on Rome!

Graphics are a little simplistic but its very accurate, it gives them an idea of what life is like .
