266 – Games By Kids – The Family Gamers Podcast
Fact! Bob Feller, a pretty cool guy who happened to be a baseball pitcher, ended his MLB career with 266 wins.
We always talk about playing games with your kids – but what about playing games designed BY kids?
We were inspired by the People of Play (formerly ChiTAG) Young Inventor Challenge.
