I was pleased to have an
opportunity to give my brain a bit of a workout when these two Cortex Challenge
games arrived. We were sent the normal
and kids editions, you can also get a Geo edition with geographical challenges
and puzzles. Each game has an RRP of
only £12.99 so they are an affordable way to keep your child’s brains exercised
over the long summer holidays.
The games come in a small box so an ideal to take away on
holiday too. There is very minimal set
up so you can get stuck into game play straight away. No worries of your child getting frustrated as you read through a
big book of rules.
Eldest managed to beat me on both
editions we played, he said (rather proudly with a puffed up chest) “its
because I have a bigger brain!” So I
better up my game soon or he will become insufferable! You can definitely tell my brain cells are
under-utilised at the moment!
I am not sure if it’s because he
was victorious but he did say it was the best game ever. I think they are great games to own to
develop your thinking, memory and speed skills. My reflexes are pretty slow so he has a distinct advantage, but
the more you practise the better you get.
The textured cards make it very
interesting, certainly more of a novelty with the tactile element that you
rarely find in games. Eldest seemed
quite talented at gauging what the pictures were but even now I had seen and
handled them at the beginning of the game I was clueless. The games have indicated that my memory
skills are lacking, so least I know where I need to make improvements.
You can find out more information on the Cortex website, but
don’t dart off before entering my competition to win both the Normal edition
and Kids edition of the game. Simply
