April 1, 2016
Upon your request, here is a collection of some of the best strategy games to play on your iPad or iPhone. We have scrupulously handpicked these apps from the gaming section in iTunes App Store. And as we have argued in a previous post, ‘Strategy games are ideal for helping kids develop logico-mathematical skills that emphasize problem solving and strategic planning. Given the challenging nature of play involved in these games which is based entirely  on the decisions and moves players make, strategy games can also enhance  kids’ autonomous decision making skills and skillful thinking.’ Check out the apps below and share us your feedback.
