Developed by EA in collaboration with director and producer Steven Spielberg, BOOM BLOX Bash Party takes destruction to new heights, providing the ultimate social gaming experience. BOOM BLOX Bash Party will get your party started with new Versus, Co-op and Team Play challenges - twice as many multiplayer challenges as the original BOOM BLOX.

As kids, you probably built giant wooden block castles or fortresses, only to knock them over (the funnest part!).

A game that will get their mind moving, as well as satisfy that little "destructive side."

Tetris Party Deluxe Wii

This is the most obvious choice for a great, classic puzzle game available for play on the Wii console (which means it's also playable on the Wii U).

Tetris Party has some different modes to play in, but the classic Tetris is the one you'll play the most. I can't tell you how many hours I spent playing this while waiting for our first daughter to arrive!

      @Lady Lorelei: Wii has quite a bit of puzzle games. I think that's one area they set themselves apart from the other systems, because they offer some brain stimluation.

      My grandkids play Wii all the time but I had no idea that they had puzzle games. The kids are usually playing action games but I think giving your mind a good work out is just as important as physical stimuli.
