Panic Lab is a fun game for sharp eyes and fast thinkers.
Amoebas have escaped and are running free. Roll the dice to discover which amoeba you are hunting for (by shape, colour and pattern) and which lab it escaped from, then try to be the first to track it down. They can escape through the air vents or mutate as you search. You definitely need a cool head, sharp eyes and a fast hand to find them before your opponents do.

A great age for exploring the world around and climbing trees. Eight year olds are smart, resilient and very imaginative. Spy kits and secret agent stuff are very appealing. Or presents that involve setting up traps and alarms. For the more stylish 8 year old, a cool watch is a popular present. Or chalk to colour your hair.
