Smartboard Games for Notation and Rhythm

Yesterday I featured The Music Interactive's new Boomwhacker® software. Today I had some extra time with my second graders at the end of our notation unit. To reinforce the notes on the treble staff, we played The Music Interactive's Staff Wars game. What a super fun, exciting way to practice the notes on the staff. I appreciate that they also include Alto and Bass clef options for the game, so the extension possibilities for this activity are limitless.
They have a version 2.0 of Staff Wars which I downloaded yesterday but have not tried it out yet. Anyone used it? Thoughts?

Here's a quick video of my kids playing the game...they love it!
