    Educational Games for XBox 1?

    Hi All,

    New to the forums and could use some help. We recently bought our twin grandsons an Xbox 1 for their 11 birthday. As you might well imagine they are addicted to the machine. My question to the group is:

    1) Are there any educational games for it? (awww Papa, educational games?) Games that would work on reading and comprehension, vocabulary, math skills etc. If so what are the names of them please?

    Thanks a bunch.

    Darryl

    Hi Darryl and welcome. I can't think of any on the top of my head that are really educational.
    I'm going to thrown minecraft out there purely as it's a game that uses your imagination.

    It's not really that kind of machine. Games consoles are really not great on educational stuff these days.
    My first game controller had six numbered sides

    I'm not sure they'll learn a ton, but Minecraft is probably one of the best educational options. Of course it's on pretty much every gaming system, phone, etc. out there too. Zoo Tycoon is a good one if they like that sort of thing. It'll teach them quite a bit about animals. My kids (9, 5, and 2) enjoy watching my wife play Zoo Tycoon!

    Some good suggestions above, what about The jack box party collection with various board games in, some are word based so could be educational. 🎓
