Among Facebook games, Ravenwood Fair stands out in its setting, ease of play, and generous resources. Actions in the game result in various rewards such as money, experience points, and resources, including energy, which is required for each action. What makes Ravenwood Fair a better game is not just the beautiful setting that appeals to teens, but also that resources are more abundant. Fewer items are gated, and resources can be purchased at small increments, as little as one Facebook credit at a time, so parents can use the purchase of items as an economy lesson.

Energy builds back up over time and can also be bought with in-game resources so a teen can actually get a good bit of game time before running out of energy. The social aspect of Ravenwood Fair is found in the giving of gifts and visiting each other's Fairs to assist in maintenance or to just play the games, as both actions and visits are rewarded. Added to all that, the sounds and music that accompany actions and short voice-overs bring this game to a cut above the others.

Online interaction: One of the few social games that doesn't require you to have a great number of other Facebook friends playing the game to advance; it does, however, encourage friends to help each other by gifting resources needed to advance in the game.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
