C-Jump: a board game about computer programming

cjump.JPG

Whenever I see toys like this, I have this fear that once I have a child, the poor thing wont even have a chance to not be brought up as a complete nerd. Nevertheless, I think this board game is pretty cool and I would totally play it with my kid of course!!!!!

C-jump teaches kids the basics about programming languages like C, C++ and Java. It introduces the main commands like if else switch and the variable X concept.

The child calculates number of steps in the move, including addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication of small numbers. The game helps to develop understanding of a complete computer program, formed by logical sequences of commands.

You can buy the game on the official c-jump website for $21.95 +shipping expenses.

I think it's better than having you kid growing as a complete jerk. Would you prefer him to play dull games?
