What a shame - but it does sound cute. :-) Just curious - is the "Tetris" game Blokus? That is really fun, although it's best with four players.

We lost our copy of Moose in the House at some point, which makes me sad, because I loved the silly pictures of the moose in the different rooms. I can tell you that it would play just fine without the moose trap cards, if you want to try that. It's an entirely luck-based game, though, that may be a little below the mark for a gifted seven-year-old. This article has some good choices, and there is a long thread pinned in the Recommended Resources thread that talks about games.
