Have you ever wanted a program to amuse the kids on those long winter nights when there is nothing worth watching on TV? This could be it, for here is a program containing 15 sets of questions with 50 questions per set.

It doesn't matter what your preference is, there are quizzes here from nursery rhymes to science, from sums to spelling and from games to brain strainers.

The package consists of a master control program, which can also be used to generate your own quizzes and 15 different databases containing the questions and answers. It's easy to use and likely to provide just the type of quiz that children adore. Unfortunately, it is designed for only one child at once; it would have been good to let them battle it out, but the range of options provided is excellent.

This is a good, interesting and flexible game but I wouldn't claim that it is too educational, just fun!
