We've reviewed a few of the Think Fun games, and they're all a hit around here. Knot So Fast is no exception.
Small enough to keep in a purse or diaper bag as a waiting room diversion, Knot So Fast consists of a spiral bound booklet of knots, a metal ring, and a little over a yard of rope.
The rope has a neat feel to it, and is great for those who love a tactile fidget. The 40 knots in the notebook range from simple to complex, and you can work through the notebook, progressing in difficulty.
Although I initially thought of this as a "boy" game, since sailors and such use knots, I realized there are many knots in crafting, too. This would be a great warm up for someone wanting to learn how to make Chinese ball buttons, or do some of the amazing complex Chinese knots made from silk cord.
Knot So Fast sells for $14.99. See also our reviews on Think Fun's Rush Hour and Square By Square, two more fun brain games.
When Paul was in the fire academy, he used to have a length of "practice rope" he used to work on the various knots used in firefighting. This would be a great gift for a teen interested in going into the fire service or the Navy or Coast Guard.
