Distraction Reviews are Focused on Fun!

After the success of ThinkFun's first card game Swish (nominated Toy of the Year!), we were thrilled to add another fantastic card game to our 2012 product line.  Distraction, designed to exercise working memory, is a multi player game for ages 8 and up.  Brain fitness and keeping memory strong and sharp as we age are hot topics these days, and Distraction is the most fun way to train this crucial area of the brain!
