"Reconizing that my experience with the game is limited, I am nevertheless enthusiastic about its problem solving aspects. I am especially impressed with the apparent connection between ICO and sequential and spatial perception. The game would most certainly be a valuable addition to any classroom, and especially to a class of gifted learners."

"It is a professional pleasure for me to endorse your game for its high-interest, educational potential. Increased dimenional understanding could have a positive relation to geometry, the building trades, or the structure of language. Increased decision-making and logic, from moves based on thought rather than chance, could have a positive impact on instilling a competitive nature, or developing the competitive desire, with others in an environment which encourages understanding of how others feel, reason, and react. In short, I highly recommend ICO as a worthwile supplement to educational and enrichment programs."

"We continually seed activities which are fun and at the same time instructional for students who have a broad range of abilities to include giftendness. The 3-dimentional Crystal game is effective in encouraging creative thinking, sequencing, problem solving and holistic perception."Dorothy DeWitty
"I was most impressed with the children's joy in playing ICO. It was a very worthwhile activity because the children were softly forced into using planning and spatial perspective skills not normally required in the classroom."
"I most enjoyed seeing the totally left-brained kids learning that they will need other ways of seeing life problems and must employ their right, feeling hemispheres if they are to successfully solve those problems. I could almost feel the switch from one side to the other, and located some holes in my own perception and thinking."
