A Bit of Banter
A marvelous travel game for parents with tween girls, A Bit of Banter, engaged this tough-to-please audience. Packed away in a compact tin are polished stones and a deck of cards loaded with intriguing talking points. The questions posed on these cards are sufficiently thought-provoking and probing so as to stimulate exploration and discussion that perhaps might not occur organically, especially in this era of hyphenated tech-speak. Younger children will need an adult’s guidance, but girls on the cusp of becoming teenagers really enjoyed the experience.
