Denver, CO (June 10, 2012) – A generation or two ago, fathers and sons would have heart-to-heart conversations while fishing in a stream. Can you imagine doing that today? Spending quality time with your school-age kids is not an easy task if you are a Dad because they are either (a) giving parents the silent treatment or (b) distracted by texting, surfing or tweeting or (c) don’t share the same interests as dear old Dad. Happily one family game on the market today offers an array of opportunities to talk with your tween or teen while just chillin’. For that reason Funnybone Toys wins a Father’s Day 2012 Mr. Dad.com Seal of Approval and GreatDad Recommends for its thought-provoking Array card game.

The Mr. Dad Seal of Approval and the Great Dad Recommends program recognize products and services that support their mission of giving men the resources, tools, and information they need to be the fathers they want to be and that their families need them to be.

Array, one of three Funnybone Toys card games launched this year, is not only fun and thought provoking but also visually stunning works of art. After a few rounds of play the dads/ judges wrote affectionately:

“Array is a card game that prompts players to match colors like dominoes. But there’s a twist: players can split the color connections and start new color arrays to use more of their cards and win the game. Additional cards can give you a winning advantage. Array can be played while carrying on a conversation that, like a puzzle, is good when trying to talk with silent kids or awkward teens about their daily lives. Dads will enjoy the graphic design and innovative touches in this dominoes-like card game.”
