Did you know that CTREX Pro Subscribers can “bookmark” reviews for future reference?

While logged in, click on the star next to any title. This will save the review to your profile page. You can view your profile by selecting the icon with your username in the top-right.

Bookmarking has been available for a while now, but now you can create your own folders to organize your bookmarks into as many lists as you want. You can even print these lists or export their data.

Need to find a handful of titles on a certain topic? Create a new folder and move your bookmarks to it. The next time you need to compile a list, your old bookmarks will remain separate. Using this new tool, you can use CTREX to manage your research more flexibly.

Check it out, and let us know what you think! We're always looking for ways to improve the CTREX experience.

Can you work with a partner to defuse a bomb -- before it blows up? Designed for older children or adults, for non-tablet platforms (including VR), this collaborative problem-solving puzzle mixes a timed screen experience with printed instructions. One player -- who can't see the screen -- uses the printed instruction manual to deliver the essential information (cut the second yellow wire) while the second player describes the situation and executes the instructions. The briefcase-sized bomb contains several types of puzzles. There are different challenge levels, and the rounds take up to five minutes.

To win and defuse the bomb you'll need to communicate quickly, clearly, and effectively. The timer makes sinister sounds toward the end, creating more excitement. The actual "explosion" is a dark screen followed by a view of the case report. A VR mode can be used to further isolate you from your instruction reader. Works with Oculus Rift/HTC Vive, PlayStation VR, Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Go and Daydream. You can downlad a PDF of the The Bomb Defusal Manual at http://www.bombmanual.com. It can be printed or viewed on any web-enabled device. Learn more at http://www.keeptalkinggame.com/#buy.

Thanks to Barbara Chamberlin for demonstrating this game during Dust or Magic AppCamp 2018.
