Brainbox - Horrible Science Blood and Guts
BrainBox is a fast and fun memory game that does not require any pens, pencils, paper, playing board or even a table! Each round takes 10 seconds so all players are involved. A game lasts as long as you want it to, 10 minutes is the norm, but playing for 5 minutes is great fun also. BrainBox is educational and is perfect for families and groups of friends to play, wherever they are, on a level-playing field. Packed in a sturdy cool magnetic cube box. BrainBox is ready to play without any set-up time needed. The rules are pretty straight forward. You can play solo or with as many people as you want. A player simply picks a card and studies it for 10 seconds before being asked a question from the back, chosen by the roll of a die. A correct answer means the card is kept, if not it is returned to the box. The player with most cards after 5 or 10 minutes wins! The winner may not be who you expect as this fabulous game is about observation and memory, not learned facts! BrainBox Horrible Science: Blood & Guta contains all the gore and more! Full of fabulously horrible facts about our bodies, from bulging brains and gurgling guts to awesome eyeballs and awful earwax!
This is a great game that can be played with just one player, but also is as fun with many more players.
The game is contained in a smallish box and contains a set of question/playing cards, an egg timer and die. The cards are double sided; one side containing lots of information and the other a list of questions. The questions are either biology based or observation based - but all the information you need to answer question is on the card. The only downside to the game is that there are no sets of 'official' answers given - which if played by a group, could lead to arguments (in my house anyway)!
The game has an educational base and it is suggested for ages 8-108 years. It would be perfect for a long journey or to while away an hour at home. There are lots of questions which children will learn about at
school and therefore would be a good addition to any school's resources too.
I received this game through the Amazon Vine Programme.
