I like the idea of lighter versions of popular games.  As someone who likes to play deeper games but have family that like lighter games, it might be nice to gauge their interest and possibly ramp them into the heavier versions.  Great idea.

Interested in the cover story because always looking for more games to play with my kid.

I surprisingly didn't know about Kids Chronicles: Quest for the Moon Stones until I saw this issue. Reading the article only made me desire it more.

Eagerly awaiting my DL!

Does the black version of KOT add anything new, or is it just a recolour?

I love KoT! Also I like the idea for lighter games with the feel of longer, popular games. I have young children and limited time/opportunity to play lengthy games.
