[Source: The Playful OTter]
To the untrained eye, this may look like just another dice game. But to a therapist it can be so much more. Occupational therapists, who are trained to look at the parts of the whole, may choose to play Go Nuts! as a way to help develop distal finger skills and fine motor precision (repeatedly cupping the hand can help develop, strengthen, and stabilize the arches which in turn direct skilled movements of the fingers). They may also choose to play it because there is no set-up, there is very little down time, it is fast playing, and turns are short. As a matter of fact, it is a game that plays in 12 minutes or less, according to the box.
