Oh what a Tangled web we weave... And what fun!

As a kid, I didn't play Cats in the Cradle much... But I did play it a little bit. If you're note familiar with the game, one person holds some string or a rubber band in their fingers and the next person interacts with it and so on. It's more than a game, because you're learning problem solving skills, not to mention physics and geometry!


I just discovered an iOS app that works similarly. Tangled challenges you to untangle strings pinned in assorted complex positions. You are timed and penalized for unnecessary moves.


I like that Tangled is a Universal app, so it leverages the larger screen of the iPad, if you have one.


Whatever your age, you should find Tangled challenging and you can play it for minutes at a time, or hours if you really get into it!
