I just know it was one of the highlights of being a kid, and it made me feel a whole lot closer to my mom and dad.
Well, here’s something you dont see everyday, a multi player gameshow for the iPad, think Jeopardy, without the need to phrase the answers in the form of a question. Each player gets their own “Popper” in order to buzz in with an answer. The apps are available on iTunes and with several titles to choose from, family game night can be a blast!
