These brain-boosting games are designed to strengthen mental muscles through play – and you can bet my playful grandma has already got a set!
These three games were created in partnership with fantastic volunteer testers from the ThinkFun community and AARP who gave feedback on everything from packaging to piece design to challenge progression. Industrial designers shared ergonomic pieces designed for larger hands, and testers voted for their favorites and shared great ideas about modifications and preferred game storage. Below is an example of insight from an early survey that led to the tagline “Cross Train Your Brain” on the package front!
We spent several months working with these testers, sharing new ideas, testing play patterns, and refining these new offerings to ensure they were both a fun and challenging experience!
Testers shared some fantastic feedback after a month of playing…
“I plan ahead more. I think of the outcome before hastily acting.”
“I play bridge and find it easier to remember which cards were played!”
“Gets your brain thinking! Challenging, stimulating and fun all in one.”
“I plan to play these for a long time!”
Increasingly we are hearing about the importance of keeping our brains nimble and strong as we age. With so many companies offering digital training games, we are very proud to present quality hands-on thinking games that engage players both on a tactile and mental level. These three classic ThinkFun games, Rush Hour, Chocolate Fix, and Solitaire Chess, have long been celebrated for pushing players to think harder and challenge themselves, and we are thrilled to present them now for an older audience!
