Children as young as 4 will have a blast and never suspect that they're learning!
July 23, 2002 Alexandria, VA - Binary Arts Corporation introduces three games for young players that have all the qualities of a hit series. They're portable and simple to learn. But they never, ever get boring. All players stay engaged in the action, while they sharpen many cognitive skills, including memory, concentration, and matching. Parents will love that that these games are so affordable, not to mention they're the best traveling companions you could want on a family trip.
Picture Link™ - The Patch-Making Match Game! involves every player on every move. It includes four hexagonal game boards with the same 61 pictures in different locations, along with 84 game markers. Players take turns calling out pictures and marking them bingo-style, in an attempt to complete a path from one side of their board to the other. The constant action teaches kids to make associations, concentrate, and seek out and recognize a wide variety of images. (2-4 players. Ages 4 and up. Retail price: $14.99)
The Same Game™ - The Memory Game With A Spin! challenges young minds with conundrums like: Does a green caterpillar match a green airplane? How about two fish and two shoes? Or a train and a police car? Each of these pairs represents a match when you're playing The Same Game. (Who knows, maybe Same Game addicts will grow up and breeze through those analogies on standardized tests!) The game's spinner prompts players to match pairs in three ways - by color, number, or category. The one with the most matching pairs wins. (2-4 players. Ages 5 and up. Retail price: $9.99)
Pet Hunt™ - The Lost & Found Card Match Game! is a wacky take on matching picture card games. Using two sets of cards -- one big and one small -- players carefully compare the animals on both sets, hunting for pets they HAVE and pets they DON'T HAVE. Matched pairs are discarded, and the first player to be left with no big cards wins. Constant participation means all fun and no waiting! (2-4 players. Ages 4 and up. Retail price: $9.99)
