With video games I find myself zoning out to those. I just play them to take me away from reality.
Think Fun sent me a new game to try called Shape Logic. You can soon get it on Amazon for $19.99. It's the perfect gift for Christmas - if you celebrate that holiday. Otherwise just get it for no reason other than to play it. :)
Shape Logic isn't out in the mass market just yet. I have to admit when I get a game I search how to play it before reading the instructions. I've always been such a visual learner. Lucky for me...their instructions are visual. They have words + pictures.
The game is ages 8 and up. It's perfect for my boys ages 8 and 11.
How to Play:
There is a set of 50 challenges ranging in difficultly
I started out with the Beginner. I could see Isaak in Beginner and Intermediate. Mica would be in Advanced, Expert and Genius.
The box holds everything needed to play. If you decide to, you could use the bag that comes with the game. All the pieces fit inside that too.
This game has no board. Just cards and pieces.
You can see in the picture below there's 2 sides. You find those pieces, and try to match the position on each side.
It looks easy enough. That's because I was on the Beginner deck. I'm a beginner + I was fighting daylight to take photos.
You can watch the puzzles get more challenging:
If you're a visual person like me I created a video to show you how to play.
I love Think Fun games just because they make one think.
I sometimes like multiplayer games, but there are other times where I find myself saying to Isaak, "Go do something!" This is something he can do on his own.
This is a STEM game:
I love that this game can fit into a classroom setting. We make curriculums for our boys during their winter, spring and summer breaks. I'm going to add Shape Logic to that.
What is your favorite game?
