Roman Town Game Party Review and Giveaway


 Roman Town Game Party

Sponsored by  Mommy Parties and Dig-It Games

I was so happy to be selected to host a Roman Town Game party for my daughter and her friends from Mommy Parties. It is not often that I come across an opportunity that is geared toward my 13 year old daughter.




 About Dig-ItGames

Info from website

Dig-It! Games is an independent computer game developer committed to creating innovative, interactive, instructional computer games based on historical themes with high-value educational content.  Dig-It! Games knows that fun and learning can, and should, go hand in hand.

Founded by a professional archaeologist and teacher, Dig-It! Games promotes learning through active discovery and the development of critical thinking and problem solving skills in young learners. Dig-It! Games presents authentic and accurate historical information that conforms to the curriculum mandates and Standards of Learning of many states. Dig-It! Games creates “hands-on” learning games that can be played at home, used as course supplements, and adapt easily to the classroom.


Before I applied to host the party I went to the Dig-ItGames website to see what the Roman Town game was all about. I wanted to make sure that it was a game that my 13 year old daughter would be interested in. I was very impressed that the game was developed by an actual archaeologist. My daughter has been interested in archaeology for a few years now and I figured she would love to play this game. She would be able to learn as she was playing the game and I thought that was a great thing. Here is a game that she can have fun playing and at the same time learn about archaeology. After reading what the website had to say I filled out the application.


I let my daughter play the game a few times before the party so when her guests were here she would be able to show them how the game worked instead of having to try to learn her way around a new game during the party.


The kids were impressed and enjoyed the game. 

They also enjoyed the word search puzzles that were included.


The kids had a great time and loved the goodie bags I made with the Roman Town gear that was provided for the party. Each guest took home a coupon good for a free copy of the Roman Town game. 

Buy It: You can buy a copy of the Roman Town Game at the Dig-It!Games site here.
Roman Town is available for the classroom
and would be a great learning tool for Homeschoolers

This is very cool! And I'm thrilled that it's aimed at 5th to 8th graders - that's perfect! Because I'm seriously considering getting a copy for my mom to use with the 5th-7th graders she volunteers with. She was always coming in to do Greek and Roman presentations for our classes when we were kids, she just loves it, and this would be a great way for her to engage them in another way.

I love the fact that the learning involved will not be noticed by my children,after all to them its a game. I like the fact that it is based off authentic artifacts and learning about day to day life.

I love the fact that my kids will probably not notice that they are learning. I like it is based off of authentic artifacts and that you learn about day to day life.

I love that this teaching game is geared for middle schoolers. It is something they can play together, have fun, and learn about Roman history at the same time.
