Wandering through Target, and checking out the toy aisle I stumbled across this bad boy and knew I had to get a shot. No this isn’t a joke, it’s an actual board game based on the Nintendo DS (and now Wii) game Big Brain Academy.

And as a bonus Amazon is selling it for 15 bucks! You’re saving 5 bucks by going analog baby! Who needs the touch screen when you have a sand timer?
