Based on the high-spirited manual by Andrea J. Buchanan and Miriam Peskowitz, the Wii edition of The Daring Game for Girls is an action-adventure game, full of activities and information intended to entertain and enlighten girl gamers. Players choose one of several pre-designed girl characters, of a range of ethnicities and appearances, to represent them in the adventure. Embracing girlhood but avoiding becoming too "girly," activities involve games such as basketball, freeze-tag, and double Dutch jump roping, as well as more practical tasks, such as wilderness exploration and campfire building. The game also challenges players with pop quizzes, about the activities they've mastered and heroic women in history. The ultimate goal is to get ready for a grand expedition, to the heights of Mount McKinley, through the dangerous Amazon jungles, or on safari in Africa. To prepare, players take on missions around the neighborhood, in the schoolyard, and at a local campground.
By competing in sports and games, completing virtual crafts and projects, and accomplishing tasks around the house and in the garden, the player's character acquires pieces of the "Essential Gear" she will need for her great expedition, and earns "Daring Girl Badges" in six categories that signify her adventuresome spirit. ~ T.J.
