“Electricity is fascinating, but it can seem overwhelmingly complex, and you can’t exactly play with household electricity, since it’s dangerous. So we asked the question ‘how can we learn about it, and connect with it, and have fun – safely?’ commented ThinkFun’s CEO and co-founder Bill Ritchie. “This game puts the principles and concepts right into players’ hands. So, while they are developing reasoning and logic skills, trying to solve the puzzle, they learn how electricity and electrical circuits work.”
As the challenges progress, advanced circuitry concepts are introduced, such as series circuits, parallel circuits, series and parallel circuits in combination, and parallel circuits in bypass. Players can even practice free-form circuit modeling. World famous puzzle-creator Wei-Hwa Huang designed the 60 challenges players can encounter.
Circuit Maze is a single player game for ages eight to adult. MSRP: $29.99. Available: March 2016.
