Hedgehog Escape

Hedgehog Escape is a logic game by Learning Mates.  At the moment, it is available on Amazon for $14.85.  The goal is to try to roll the pack of baby hedgehogs out of the hedge to their mother.  The levels increase in difficulty by adding badgers to strategic spots on the board.  This encourages the player to think ahead, and to try to learn from his or her mistakes.  It can be played by one player, but my students like to solve the puzzles in pairs.  Once a child is shown the way the game works, he or she catches on quickly.  My gifted students as young as 6 years old and as old as 11 enjoy this game.
