Swish, ThinkFun's innovative spatial card game, is getting rave reviews!
Swish was launched in 2011 and has taken off! This innovative spatial card game featuring transparent cards challenges players to create "Swishes" by layering cards together to orient colored balls inside colored hoops. A serious mental challenge, Swish strengthens visual-spatial skills and is fun for the whole family! Here is a taste of what reviewers are saying:
“Spatial intelligence is completely flexed and exercised in this game because you're not allowed to touch the cards. You have to flip them and move them in your mind to understand how they would fit." - Toys are Tools blog
“It was definitely challenging and I guarantee that some of your students will love this game - and it might not necessarily be your highest achieving students either!” – The Organized Classroom blog
“This is a great game to exercise your mind while at the same time having a great time ~ the kids won't even know that they're learning!” – Homeschooling Unscripted
“For the kiddos with spatial problems, this is a great way to implement therapeutic fun time. I like how it can be played solo, or you can have a crazy Swish-fest with a bunch of friends.” - OT Mommy blog
“The cards look gorgeous, and catch attention at gaming tables. Players will learn a little bit about symmetry in the process – Highly recommended.” – Ed Pegg aka “Math Puzzler” Top 50 Amazon Reviewer
“Swish offers a serious workout for spatial reasoning skills! My favorite part of Swish, hands-down, is that it's a snap to modify for players of different ages and ability levels.” - Desperate Housemommy blog
“I LOVE how the rules lay out different levels of play, and each player can be held to a different level during the same game based on ability to level the playing field for everyone” - Confessions from Household Six blog
“Players are forced to be patient, to look at all possible combinations, and to mentally manipulate the cards. It is definitely a thinker's game as it surely makes players evaluate their decision before calling "Swish" and physically handling the cards.” – Elementary School Gifted Specialist
“This game is excellent for kids as young as eight, but entertaining enough for adults! It’s the perfect way to spend time as a family & to challenge each other’s brains.” - Does Mommy Love It? blog
“Great group game and would make a terrific Math Station in school (what a great way to explore geometric transformations!) and a great Math Workbox at home.” - Love 2 Learn 2Day blog
