84 years old George Weiss celebrates the release of his first app ‘Dabble – The Fast Thinking Word Game,’ available now for iPhone and iPad. Since receiving his first patent in 1958, Weiss spent more than 50 years tinkering in his Brooklyn basement workshop. Weiss finally was able to see one of his inventions brought to market earlier this year when his ‘Dabble’ board game was produced by Ideas Never Implemented (INI) and picked up for distribution by Barnes & Noble.
“I have been waiting for this day since 1958,” said Weiss. “Even though a lot of things have changed since then, people still love to play a good game – and they’ll be able to do that anywhere they go now that ‘Dabble’ is on the iPad.”
At the core of the game lies a challenging yet simple word game that will help children and adults develop many useful skills – including vocabulary, spelling, and quick thinking.
DABBLE won the 2011 Game of The Year Award by Creative Child Magazine, Prestigious 2011 PAL AWARD and the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award.
