Mayan Mysteries iPad App Review – 2 Wired 2 Tired

Submitted by on Wednesday, January 30, 2013No Comment

 

Having just returned from Cancun and visiting Tulum, an ancient Maya city in a gorgeous setting, I was excited to come upon this Mayan Mysteries iPad App Review by 2 Wired 2 Tired.

There’s actually several reasons why my son and I would love this game.

1.  He goes to a Spanish immersion school and has learned about the Maya culture.

2.  His best friend happens to be of Maya descent.

3.  He has wanted to be an archaeologist for as long as he could speak.

4.  As I mentioned, we were just in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico – where the Maya and their descendants still live today.

5.  While visiting Tulum, our tour guide was Mayan and taught us some Mayan words and dispelled the myth of the Mayan calendar.  (spoiler alert: the world didn’t end)

6.  I love history and mysteries, so putting them together is just that much better!

7.  I also love educational games.  I’m all for fun, but why not flex your brain a bit while you’re having fun?

8.  I like that it can be a computer game or an iPad app.  The iPad has become our new favorite travel companion.  I carry that thing with me everywhere.

9.  Tired Dad Dave’s review makes me want to buy it right now!  So, that’s what I’m going to do!
