Product Description

Product Description

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 Inventions contains 55 cards with the most amazing and simple inventions. Where would we be without the light bulb, space shuttles. the world wide web or even tea bags?

Product Description

Quickly study the cards to see the different inventions, pictures and facts: you have 10 seconds to look carefully. Now flip the cards over and answer a question chosen by the dice- can you remember the information and pictures? Answer correctly and keep the cards, or if not return the card to the box. The player with the most cards at the end of the game wins! BrainBox Inventions contains cards with brightly coloured illustrations and facts about the inventions (who invented them, when and where). Simple to set up and ready to go, each round of this fast-paced game takes about 10 seconds so players don't have to wait long until it's their turn, and you can play for as long as you like- 10 minutes is normal, but 5 minutes is also great fun. BrainBox is educational and is perfect for families and groups of friends to play wherever they are, on a level-playing field, and can also be played solo. The game is packed in a sturdy cool magnetic cube box for easy storage. Suitable from 8 years. Includes 54 cards, 2 rules cards, a sand timer and a die. Quick facts: -For one or more players -Observation and memory gameLearn about key inventions of the world -Take 10 seconds to study the cards -Roll the die to determine which question to answer -Answer correctly and collect as many cards as you can

5.0 out of 5 stars BrainBox - what a great invention! 10 Nov 2011
By RR Waller TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is not the first BrainBox box I have bought for my grand-children (three and one), so that is a recommendation in itself. The earliest purchase on animals of the world had the question-box and an inflatable globe; the questions were well adapted by my daughter (a qualified secondary teacher) but the boys found the globe an excellent soft sphere to bounce off each other for hours of unintended fun. It turned out to be stronger than it looked, although, having bought a softball for them, it is now safely on the bookshelf!

Although this is too complicated for my two just yet, like the earlier investments (in their education), it will be adapted, e.g. extending reading times, until they are old enough and I have little doubt they will enjoy it at all its various levels of adaptation until they are able to enjoy it just as it was intended. The fact that it can easily be adapted to suit younger ages is a recommendation too, indicative of its clever conception.

They are great games, well made and thoughtfully prepared which educate while providing hours of family fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brainbox Inventions Education Toy 3 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Suitable for a wide variety of people. A game that doesn't make you feel brain dead whether you win or lose. Even the rest of my family who hate games, felt comfortable playing it and enjoyed it. Simple instructions and loads of fun. It is unusual in that one player is all you need. Very reasonably priced, easy to take away or even play in the car. Several other catagories of the same game can be purchased. A good buy. For ages 8 and over.

We first found these games at Hampton Court and my grandaughter bought one. We liked it so much we ordered a further two different titles from Amazon for ourselves. Very entertaining although 10 seconds is not long enough if you are getting on a bit!.I would recomend them to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learning, without realizing it! 9 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
Great learning tool, interesting pictures and captions, very good fun!

The way it's played does create a board-game come card game feel but my son just got lost in it - had I tried teaching him these facts in any other way he would not have taken the bait!

A textbook in disguise!

I would recommend any of the brain box games. For younger children we start with 30 seconds and then work down to 10.
