What It Is: [ThinkFun product description] The challenges and laser make the hugely popular Laser Maze Game fun. The fact that it’s a logic maze game that teaches STEM skills makes it a perfect game for anyone. Laser Maze requires you to use mirrors, beam-splitters, a little science and brainpower to direct the laser through a series of mind-challenging mazes and light up the target. This award-winning maze game is designed for solo play, but it’s so much fun everyone in the family will want a turn.
Brain Benefits: Logic and Reasoning, visual processing (could add processing speed by timing the game)
What I Love: This is a great alternative to screen time. You can pull this out in the car or when you are waiting at a doctors appointment instead of the iPad. This single player game requires the player to think about where to put mirror or other objects requested by the challenge card to make a laser light up the final piece. Solutions are given on the back of the card. I love the varying degree of difficulty each challenge has. Some of the higher challenges even had me stumped! My boys love finding the goal in getting the light to turn on.
What I Would Change: Have a noise that celebrates a successful path.
