Generally speaking, I like to keep my learning and my gaming separate. That is something I save for my daughter. However, I thought that Hidden Mysteries: Civil War sounded like it might be some fun. While it is a pretty standard hidden object game with the list of items for you to find, each list has one item that moves the "plotline" forward. The plotline here is the American Civil War. Each location is the historic location of a landmark battle. Each clue tells us a little bit more about some of the people that fought these battles. So it's a history lesson that has been made enjoyable - especially for those of us who aren't fond of historic things.
