Love logic games for your kids or yourself? Want a great addition to your single player gaming collection? If you’ve got a kid who needs some extra summer entertainment that will boost their brain activity, try IQ Circuit from SmartGames.
Whether at home or on the road, this compact game comes with everything you need to start playing right out of the box. The small plastic case holds all the pieces as well as the instruction booklet, which contains the challenges and solutions. Complete the circuits as pictured to make continuous lines between each set of endpoints to solve the puzzle. Most pieces have two different sides that can be used, while the rectangular pieces offer three possibilities. Choose the correct side of each piece in the right place to fill the case and beat the puzzle.
This simple concept gets much harder. Choose from four different difficulty levels, from starter to wizard. The easiest level shows an outline of multiple pieces in their correct placement, so players have fewer pieces to find and place. The hardest level shows only the endpoints, leaving players to figure everything out for themselves. Kids can build up their skills or try their hand at whatever level they’d like. The booklet contains solutions for all 120 challenges.
With minimal reading required, this logic game works great for a wide variety of ages. Kids can play solo or team up to solve the problems.
