My kids love technology based games just as much as the next kids, but I also like to offer them unplugged games. I am so thankful that I am connected with the toy industry’s single player puzzle leader, SmartGames. With cell phones, tablets, and handheld game systems, sometimes it’s just nice to have an unplugged quiet time of total concentration.
We love board games during family game night in this house. I truly do appreciate the value of SmartGames. One move leads (or maybe not) to another. Games requiring logic — even for those as young as 6 years old — serves up a bounty of benefits.
SmartGames rolls out a new line of travel puzzles and boxed games that improves memory, boosts logical thinking, enhances concentration, and best of all, creates self-confidence. Cognitive skills from planning and memory to problem solving and spatial insight will get a jolt while climbing a ladder to mine for gold or navigating a spaceship through an asteroid field.
Look for these three solo player puzzles, ideal for family travel, waiting out the line at a restaurant or just on the couch at home.
