As a lover of board games, I find this Kickstarter project to be down right awesome. A year or so ago, I tried to teach myself to code. But like most people who try to pick up a skill they don’t need on the day to day, I eventually got frustrated and stopped trying. That doesn’t mean that I don’t still think it’s a super important skill to learn. Frankly, I find it more valuable in modern society than knowing a foreign language. I also admire that the game creator took time to test the game and make sure that it’s something kids (and likely larger kids like me) would actually enjoy playing. Though Code Monkey Island’s crowdfunding campaign ended, you can still pre-order on their website. Best news is it is actually said to ship soon.
