As some of you know, I have a slightly scary addiction to Kickstarter. However, I feel like I’ve been pretty good at choosing some winning products to back, which makes my addiction a bit less scary – though not less impactful on my wallet. The Turing Tumble was one Kickstarter product that lived up to its promise, and I even recommended it for Gifts for the Gifted in 2018. You can read more about it here. I have used Turing Tumble with various age groups, and the kids who love it often don’t want to let anyone else try. Put that together with, well, Covid-19, where you don’t exactly want to encourage people to share their toys, and you might have a bit of a challenge playing this game. This is where the recently launched site, Tumble Together, can help out. Tumble Together is a Turing Tumble simulator (say that 10 times fast). You can mesmerize yourself by moving the pieces and dropping the marbles to your heart’s content. You can even click on the menu to do 30 different challenges. But the best part is that you can open your own shared room and invite your friends to work on it with you! Without worrying about germs!
Turing Tumble – it’s a game, it’s an education, it’s a plethora of conundrums. Check it out. And, don’t forget that Turing Tumble offers Educator Resources here, including discounts on the physical game which is a delight.
