Our dear friends in Palo Alto, a homeschooling family of 7, introduced us to a new game a couple of years ago: Dance Praise (click on Dance Praise at the bottom of the screen). It's like Dance Dance Revolution, except with encouraging, wholesome songs and lyrics. Just as energetic and boppy. Upbeat songs by people like the Newsboys, Audio Adrenaline, Delirious?, ZOEgirl, Out of Eden, tobyMac, Steven Curtis Chapman, and David Crowder Band.
So about a month ago, we finally decided to get it for ourselves. We don't have a whole arcade game in our home, no - it's just a computer CD-rom which plays on our laptop screens, and two soft, foldable pads on the floor, so two people can duel or cooperate to make higher scores. I use it for exercise; there's a special mode for that which keeps track of time spent (or even calories burned, if you're into that). The time flies because I get so focused on stepping on the arrows at the right time, grooving to the beat...but as hard as I try, my kids are both always better than I. Come to our house and try it out...you'll want one, too. A great Christmas present: good for body and soul, interactive and social, and gets you farther away from the good old computer screen. No one paid me anything for this ad. I just love this game! It's almost too good to be true - but not quite.

Soooo, gotta ask, did you get standard or souped-up mats?
That looks like fun!
Do you have any of the cranium games? The younger boys love hullaballo, it's a bit similar, but the older ones will play a bit more reluctantly with each year. Still fun, I like when games make you move. Adding Christian tunes can only be more exciting :-) Back to the original thought though, they do enjoy the cranium games that we've gotten so far, (but ours aren't as old yet). If you're looking for other games. Which I somehow suspect you are, knowing your propensity for good gaming fun :-)

Wow, never heard of this! We have Mario DDR and my kids have a great time with it.
