Square By Square game from ThinkFun

Serious fun happening at our house!  Remember when we reviewed Rush Hour?  Jack still play that game at least once a week.  Well, the good folks at ThinkFun have asked us to play Square By Square and see what we think of it.  

It's harder than you might think!  It takes spacial awareness and foresight.  The nice thing is, it's self correcting.  The pieces all have to fit in the frame.

Square By Square is a single player game.  It comes with 14 pieces and 60 challenge cards, which store in the handy pull out tray.  The whole game fits into a blue mesh bag for storage.

Eli's favorite was the BAT card (one of his favorite shirts right now has a bat on it).

Then Jack got a hold of the game, and he really enjoyed it!

Designed for kids ages 5 and up, it still managed to hold the attention of all the older kids who tried it.

I like that the kids are working on thinking and reasoning skills... and they don't even realize it!  This would be a great puzzle to take along on your next road trip, or tuck away for a sick day.  (My grandmother had a special shoebox of "sick toys" her kids only got to play with when they were in bed for the day with a cold.)

Square By Square, as well as many other great ThinkFun games is available for sale on the ThinkFun website, and on Amazon.  And right now, zulily.com has several ThinkFun games on their site, too!  You can connect with ThinkFun games on Twitter or Facebook.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  1. My kids like brainy games like this. It's like a puzzle for their minds to solve.

    1. Do you guys have Zoo Logic? Timberdoodle sells it, and that's a fun one, too.
