Having a game that also teaches a child is rare. Most games are exciting and fun, but they teach no real skill. ThinkFun Games has taken on the ultimate challenge and developed a line of coding games that are sure to keep your child entertained for hours while teaching them a useable skill.
Thinkfun Games are all about making games that not only keep you entertained, but they also want to challenge the minds of the players. They develop all kinds of games including the new coding series, brain teasers, and puzzles. They give all kids an early learning advantage.
Code: On the Brink is the first game in a series of games designed to build mental skills and to full understand the concept of coding. (This is something I’m still learning about.) All of ThinkFun’s coding games are screen free so there is no electronics needed or batteries for any of these games. On the Brink has 40 fun challenges that contain a map of colored squares. Each square tells your robot where to move. With the skills learned, your robot can move from start to finish. This game is one player ages 8 and older.
Code: Rover Control is the second in the coding series from ThinkFun. This one has 40 Rover Control challenge cards and each contains a map. The problem is the pathways on the maps are color less and the rover is programmed to only travel on colored pathways. The challenge is to color the pathway so the rover can complete its mission. Ages 8 and older, one player.
Code: Robot Repair is the third in the coding series of games from ThinkFun. This game continues to teach mental skill associated with coding. There are 40 Robot Repair challenges to fix your robot. Within the robots are wires that need to be activated by power cells. Using the clues and logical thinking, you will insert the power cells and repair the robot. Again, this game is for ages 8 and older, and for one player.
Another fun game from ThinkFun is RollerCoaster Challenge. This game is an engineering challenge that players get to build their own rollercoaster. Start by choosing a challenge card and match the setup. Then players use the remaining pieces to build a working coaster. The game is about logic and creativity. When the coaster is complete, the player gets to send its car on the ride of its life.
