  • http://www2.uic.edu/~syamad1/ch-game/moves.html
    This site gives students a chance to play a problem solving game involving Calvin and Hobbes. Created by Northwestern University psychology students, the game is a traditional problem-solving task in which you must move "pieces" from one side of a river to the other with a number of limitations. The game is enjoyable even for those who are not Calvin and Hobbes fans.
