Who would love this: Logical game lovers
It’s an open fact that this mumma is obsessed with SmartGames , especially those brain teasers combine with fantastic themes, storyline and cool components! “IQ Puzzler Pro” is the first pocket-sized abstract game from SmartGames that I tested (without the usual “story” element), and I wasn’t too sure what to expect out of it initially. BUT my oh my, what a delightful and pleasant surprise! Thank you Leisure Learning for giving me a chance to discover such amazing game!
Why I love ❤️ this game:
(1) 3 Games in 1- One compact set, 3 ways to play! That’s IQ Puzzler Pro for you! The set comes with a game board, a challenge booklet, and 12 puzzle pieces made of string of beads in different lengths, colours, and a variety of fixed configurations. The design sort of reminds me of the classic pentomino tiling puzzles, except that this one is more exciting! The unique bead units allow the pieces to be stacked up in a “rounded” pyramid form (that probably wouldn’t be possible using regular connected cubes such as those in Pentomino). The ingeniously-designed game board has 2 different bases with grid of concave round dots where the beads can be snugly placed within. The black game board is used as a base for 2D challenge and 3D pyramid. The white board features a separate diagonal base for a different mode of 2D challenge. I was surprised to see how much my five-year-old loves playing with it despite the “mature feel” of the game. The rule is similar to the usual SmartGames style- choose a challenge, arrange the pieces as indicated, and place the remaining puzzle pieces to fill up the empty spaces. I love that the game board can also serve as a storage case where all the pieces can be securely enclosed with the transparent lid.
(2) Awesome Components- I am loving how sturdy and vibrantly colourful the components are. The small pocket size and organised case make this the perfect “on the go” puzzle for travelling.
(3) Challenges + Solutions - There are 120 challenges included in the booklet, with only one solution for each (the answer guide sure comes in handy!). This is one great value compact game that can keep both kids and adults busy for hours and for years!
