At Critical Grind we love to introduce as many games as we can to new gamers. We always look for games that are simple to teach and entertaining. Lunarbaboon and Golden Bell Studios provide that with Parenting is Easy. It has simple rules and quick play, yet is entertaining enough to capture anyone from novice to experienced gamers.
The creators have used their own art style for a nice personal touch. The flavor text, on the other hand, is hilarious and a bit of a distraction. It was really hard for me to pay attention to the game. That's the best excuse I can come up with for losing to my wife. The scenarios they have come up with in the game are amazing but be warned, do not let you kids play this. Giving them these ideas will not be good for anyone.
