Giant Jenga
We've seen large board games before, but I am not sure anything can compare to this monstrous Jenga game. It requires heavy lifters to maneuver and place these pieces. Check out the video to see more of this crazy idea.

90's Games for Girls
In the 90's it appears that big game companies thought girls were focused on dating, shopping, and careers. Oh, and obsessed with pink. This geeklist features classic 80's and 90's games aimed at girls. Having played Electronic Dream Phone, I can say it is definitely worth looking in to.

Eight 1/2 Minute Empire
Eight-Minute Empire is a neat little area control game from last year. It offers the feeling of something like Risk in a short timeframe. This fan made expansion adds new cards and more breadth of choice to the game. Be sure to check it out.

Re the '90's Games for Girls' article, i would really like to play Mall Madness. As the game states;
Attention Mall Shoppers! The voice of the Mall has big news! Come inside and hear all about the giant sales and special bargains! Then join your friends on a wild shopping spree as you rush from store to store!

Press the console button and the Voice will tell you where to move and where to find the best sales. Hurry! Your friends may try to beat you to the bargains! See if you can be the first to buy six items. IF you need more money, make a quick stop at the bank!

To buy or bank - just insert your credit card into the slot and listen. You never know what the Voice of the Mall has "in store" for you!

I also think Careers for Girls sounds like a hoot, as i can aspire to jobs that are normally the exclusive domain of women  Tongue. As the box says;
The classic game of Careers adapted to the young female audience. The career choices are Super Mom, Rock Star, School Teacher, Fashion Designer and Animal Doctor. A sample space on the gameboard reads, "Tell us the names of your 8 children."
