explore GAME PLAN # During family vacations, there’s always time for games, indoors or outside. Here are some lively diversions By Lynn Coulter for your next getaway. Get zAPPed Hasbro’s beloved board game The Game of Life has been around for well over a century; Milton Bradley created the original version in 1860. Now this family fave comes in a zAPPed edition that makes the game, well, come to life. Place your iPad in the center of the board after downloading the free Game of Life app as you move the car-shaped About Face Intrigued by the idea of time travel? Head a few hundred years into the future and conquer an empire. Dragon Face is a game of strategy for fans of checkers and chess, although unlike chess, you only have to learn three moves. Roll out the cotton playing mat, grab the game pieces — one emperor, six ambassadors, and seven governors for each person — and jump your opponent until he retreats. Two players, eight and up, can finish a game in 20 minutes, but win or lose, you’ll demand a rematch. $30 52 JUNE 2013 game pieces from space to space. “Peg-sessories” let you customize the people pegs that fit in the cars. For ages eight and up, this interactive version also lets players land on spaces that unlock over 100 clips from America’s Funniest Home Videos; they’ll determine whether you’re lucky or unlucky as you race around the board. $25 On a Mission Engaging kids in an activity when school’s out can be a challenge. Sign up your youngsters for a different top-secret adventure every month with SOAR, the Superfly Organization of Active Recruits, and they’ll receive packets filled with mission cards, stickers, booklets, and other items needed to carry out assignments. Superheroes from ages three to ten and their parents can help make the world a better place through activities like recycling or saving water. The first packet comes with a cape (we like the lime green and bubble-gum pink). First package $25, then $20 per month
