Learning Games and Resources

Do you use games to help with your child's learning? What kind of games have you found useful to your child? I have noticed that my daughter likes to play   Hidden Object games and I have observed how well her reading has improved. I also have other games that all three of my children have enjoyed my brother had gotten each of my children board games for Christmas and I believe it was one of the best things they could have received this year. The reason why is that they have  enjoy the games and they don't mind reading the little cards to go with the game their learning how to solve problems on their own and  having  fun without realizing their learning.
