We tend to find a lot of one or two player games now so every one can play these things on their own time. I was really pumped to hear about the new ThinkFun Brain Fitness line of games. Each are single player and designed to keep your brain active and sharp. We were sent over Chocolate Fix, Rush Hour, and Solitaire Chess.
Right away we opened the Rush Hour game and thought it was great! It says this is designed for 8 and over but I have to disagree. The kids play a similar penguin game app on our phones where they need to move ice blocks to get the penguin out and so they found some of the challenges easy for their ages (5 and 3). There are 80 challenges so you won't find yourself memorizing any solution too easily.
The next one we decided to give a try was the Solitaire Chess. We were a bit hesitant as neither Kevin or myself have ever played chess and we were really confused as to how we would be able to play let alone solo. However, this one is more about learning how to make certain moves and actually almost helps you to learn a bit about how to play chess.
Chocolate Fix is a Sudoku style logic game where you need figure a way to make the challenge pattern work. Although Kevin quickly got the hang of this one, I despised it! I even enjoy Sudoku but couldn't catch onto this one for the life of me!
Rush Hour was by far our favorite one to play! I love that each of their games is listed including the specific learning skills a child can gain from playing them. You can also search based on those skills, types of games, or by age. There is a large variety of games for each skill level and each child's specific interests!
