Robot Turtles board game

ThinkFun has announced the board game Robot Turtles. The game is billed as the board game for little programmers. The game had a very successful Kickstarter campaign and raised over $600,000. ThinkFun is collaborating with inventor Dan Shapiro on the game. Shapiro created the game for his 4-year-old twins.

The game was inspired by Logo, an educational programming language designed in the 1960s, which contained turtle graphics. Kids ages four to eight play the game with an adult. Kids use Code Cards and Bug Cards to program their Robot Turtle to reach its matching jewel. The adult becomes the computer in the game and is controlled by the kids.

ThinkFun will release the game in June for $24.99. Take a look:
