We've known ever since Asterix and the Class Act that little Gauls are sometimes quite reluctant to go to school. And that only leads to them forgetting the date of the battle of Gergovia when the day of the exam comes around. Pffff
Thankfully, Asterix and his friends have proved for nearly fifty years now that learning can also be fun. Many of us, in fact, can take pride in our extensive knowledge of Latin quotes that we have accumulated through our attentive reading of Asterix albums. It's as simple as that: Asterix albums should replace school books, by Toutatis!
The Gauls have moved into second gear with Asterix Brain Trainer, the new Asterix video game for the Nintendo DS. So get your DS stylus ready for a series of more than 20 exercises led by heroes from the Crazy Gauls' Village!
There's no rest for those who seek the wisdom of the druids: multi-player competitions promise to add spice to any light-hearted video game tournaments for Gauls of all ages. And woe betide those whose poor-performing adult brains may be judged to date from 50 BC ;-)
With a view to fighting the imperialist ambitions of an increasingly globalised Rome, the Crazy Gauls' Village now boasts a tool that is at the cutting edge of Druid technology: the BLOG (Bulletin for Liaising Officially among Gauls), a genuine Gaulish vade mecum. This is where indomitable warriors of all walks of life can find the answer to everything they have ever wanted to know about Asterix and his friends: the Missives can be consulted by section, by date, or by using our Dogmatix detector, capable of unearthing any word in any article since 50 B.C.!
To top things off, the blog will regularly bring users up to speed with breaking news items from the world of Asterix. And thanks to our feed, we will soon be able to send you news from Gaul in real time. Then there'll be no excuse for missing a distribution of magic potion!
