My neice Kylie, who is nearly three years old, recently was asking me to let her play a game on my computer, so I let her play Grow . I thaught it would be one she could have fun with, and she could just point to which object she wanted to play next. She really seems to like the game and kept asking to play again. on her first try she got all the items but the pipe and the robot to their final levels (which is better than i did my first try).

I was going to post this in the thread that was made before about grow, but couldn't find it.

I don't get this game. My husband would probably love it, though.

I totally got this game. It was posted a while ago, and it's still cool.

I can't get the robot maxed out, not even if I start with the cube as my first object.

Grr.

I'm so confused.

Is this supposed to be hard? I just dragged all the objects onto the thingy.

I am so lost. [Confused]

I'm confused too. Is there any rhyme or reason to this game? Or are you just trying to find the correct order to get them all maxed out?

Finding the correct order to max them all out IS the game. [Smile] It's actually pretty easy if you know how to count and are willing to write things down.

I take it no one's trying Tontie ? It's a much more straightforward game, to me at least. And I've gotten to level twenty too [Big Grin]

I'm going to try Tontie now. I gave up on the other one a while ago.

Edit: I've played this before! It was frustratingly fun if I remember correctly!

Lets see, I can make the evil tornado, the evil mountains, and the evil ladder, and there can't be an evil windmill, I think (due to it needing to leave for the evil tornado to appear). Can anything else be made evil? I haven't been able to make the pipe do any different so far, but perhaps it can be made evil (the lake of lava would suggest that).

Not very evil, but off the normal path and caused by one of the evil things. Under the right conditions, the evil tornado will lightning zap the ladder, causing it to have evil purple power zooming.

I've been busy, so I've been lurking a lot lately.

In Tontie, what are the instructions saying for Level 7? Do you lose life for not hitting the things with the ball and chains?

you lose life for hitting it, unless you have the bronze, silver, or gold hammer.

there are now two new versions of grow!

this one: GROW, the RPG version which kylie seemed to like, but played only once

and this one: GROW Cube which kylie has asked to play many times, she likes watching the little guys run around, and i have no clue how to get it to max out.

The stupid people in the cube take too long to do their thing every turn. Nonetheless, victory is mine.

BtL, how long did it take you?

I refuse to be drawn back into trying to figure out the grow game, because I don't have mind strategic enough to recall combination. I get frustrated and then I explode.

Yesh, they do seem to take forever, and there is a ton of stuff that happens after the RPG is done, which kind of annoys me at times.

Not that long, Teshi. 20 minutes? The main chunk of this one is pretty easy. Heck, it's the weekend. What else are you going to do?

What else are you going to do?
I'm going to research and write an essay that explains the actions of one of the "actors" during the Suez Crisis as seen through either three levels of analysis or through various theories (liberalism, realism, constructivism, etc.) and then I'm going to say which one best explains said actions.

Believe me, GROW would be a lot more fun.

And BtL, I've spent way longer than 20 minutes playing that game and my brain just can't tabulate information enough to do it that fast. To do it would require me taking notes.

You're some kind of scientific person, aren't you?

EDIT: There's no such thing as the Suex Crisis, although I'm sure it would be far more interesting than the Suez Crisis.

I finally got the cube and the sphere this morning. The cube was much easier and more entertaining. If the RPG didn't take so long, I would be trying to beat that as well. Grow is pretty fun!

i am doing really badly at the cube, i think. The more times i play, the less it advances.

Can anyone at least tell me which item goes last?

okay, figured it out, wow, that was a neat ending.

though i wish the wrong combinations had more "evil endings" like the original one did.

Grisha, where's that game that you had to find a path through by pushing the cursor keys and the ball would fly until it hit a wall or fell off the edge? That one looked really addictive to me.
