What it is: [Amazon product description] Mindware’s Q-bitz is a visual challenge game that employs a litany of cognitive skills, including spacial and pattern recognition, organization, hand eye coordination, quick decision making, and a sharp memory. Q-bitz is a 3 round game. Round 1 is all about speed as players race to copy the pattern on the Q-bitz card. Round 2 adds luck to the equation, as players roll their cubes to match the pattern. Round 3 truly tests brain power, as players must re-create the pattern from memory. The winner of each round keeps the card, and the player with the most cards at the end wins!
Brain Benefits: Visual processing, memory, processing speed, logic and reasoning.
What I love: There are 3 levels of play and 80 Q-bitz cards so there’s a lot of variety and does not require a lot of time. Win and learn at the same time! Q-bitz Solo is an individual or add on set containing 20 new Q-bitz cards not found in the original set. The benefit of Q-bitz Solo is the convenient travel size. And for those who like something a little more challenging there is Q-bitz Extreme!
What I would change: Nothing!
I give this game a 5 star for its variety, durability and fun!
