A great resource for classroom teachers, homeschoolers, and anyone who has enjoyed E.D. Hirsch's books on education (A Dictionary of Cultural Literacy), the Brain Quest Game is a non-threatening yardstick for measuring learning areas that might need attention. It's also the perfect showcase for helping children to display--and feel great about--how much they already know. Younger kids will enjoy the Brain Quest Game for preschool and kindergarten. Brain Quest is for two to four players. --Julie Ubben

The drawback for many board games is that different age groups (from grade 1 - 6) cannot sit together and play the game, especially if it is dealing with general knowledge. Brain Quest overcomes that problem. Hence when we have other families with children visiting we pull out Brain Quest, since its rules are simple, and the grame is challenging. The first grader is as comfortable playing the game as the 6th grader and they can all play together! Also the game can be finished in one sitting. I am glad we have this game!
This game blew away our expectation. Our 2nd grader could answer 2nd grade questions and our 4th grader, could answer 4th grade questions, so they were playin on equal levels. The bonus feature was great, because if it is a subject they are good at, the would take the next grade up's question and move one extra space if they answered it correctly. The "peek and see" cards are a clever addition because our 2nd grader had a hard time reading some of the words in the 4th grade questions. When this happened, he could hand the card to his older brother and he could simply read his own question, without seeing the answer. It's great that we can use our other brain quest sets with this game as well. They thought of everything for this game!
The best part is the ability to choose which level of question to answer (can choose from 1st to 6th grade). It adds to the strategy of the game, making not only knowledge important, but knowing which categories are easy for you or hard.
For those people who gave it negative reviews, I have to wonder if they either didn't read, or didn't understand, the instructions. Saying that it "only requires rote memorization" and then saying Trivial Pursuit is better, not only isn't true, but doesn't even make sense...
Here are some examples of easy and tough questions for the grades we played:
Tough Question - "How many weeks in a calendar year?" My 5yo had no idea (actually my 8 year old wasn't sure either).
Easy Question - "What shape is a bicycle wheel?"
Tough Question - Is Central America part of North or South America?
Easy Question - Jeff bought a brownie for 20 cents and a cookie for 10 cents. How much did he spend?
Tough Question - Divide the word "geranium" into syllables. (The correct answer is ge-ra-ni-um. I would have answered ger a ni um.)
Easy Question - What is the product of 67x100?
We all had fun and the kids wanted to play it again today! I highly recommend it.
