Product Description

Every kid loves Brain Quest, the game where it's O.K. to be smart. This award-winning board game gives kids a chance to win by recalling things they have learned in school. This fast-paced game features 1,500 questions about everyday school subjects. It features level-specific questions for kids in grades 1 - 6, making it fun and challenging for children of different ages and abilities to play together. Players can win extra turns by answering questions from a higher grade level. Each of the 256 cards contains questions and answers in categories such as math, science, social studies, English, and grab bag (cultural literacy). Brain Quest's special folded cards prevent even the card holder from seeing the answer, so everybody gets to guess. The player who answers the most questions correctly and moves all the way around the schoolyard game board is the winner. The game actually makes learning fun. The Brain Quest Game is designed for 2 - 4 players in grades 1 - 6. Brain Quest is the winner of a Teacher's Choice Award and a National Parenting Publication Award. University Games offers you and your family original ways to have fun. Creative gameplay and quality components are our standard.

"Was Claude Monet a painter, a jazz musician, or an Italian dictator?" "Name four of the seven colors in the spectrum." Questions like these are sure to get your child's mental gears meshing while playing the Brain Quest Game for grades one to six. The object is to be the first player to finish a race around the game board, designed to mimic a school playground, by correctly answering questions from the Brain Quest cards. Each of the 256 cards contains questions and answers in categories such as math, science, social studies, English, and grab bag (a euphemism for cultural literacy). Brain Quest's folded cards prevent the I-saw-the-answer-on-the-back problem while allowing even the player asking the question to guess the answer.

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

My 5 yr old loves it as well as my 10 yr old!

Yes, sometimes the questions are too hard or too easy for the young ones, but how else do you learn?

This is truly one of my children's favorite board games.

Brain Quest is one of the board games we have played the most. This is because the whole family could play it, even though we were on all different intellectual levels. The adults, or grandparents generally chose the highest grade i.e. 6th. The younger ones went by their grade level or higher depending on the topic. It was suprising to see how much an adult had forgotten and did not know, this added to the fun and sharing experience of adults with children. The children learned in the process.
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!

We bought this game for our two kids which are in 2nd and 4th grade.
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!

I have a troop of 12 Brownie Girl Scouts who have been playing this game for 2 years now (I got it when they were 6 years old). They like it so much that they argue about who gets to play this game, even after 2 years! It is fun for the kids, and fun for adults.
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...

How refreshing it is to play a game that is so educational and practical. We played this game with our nieces and nephews, who range in age from Grade 1 to Grade 5. This is the only game we know of that can allow kids that are so far apart in age to play on equal ground---and even win! The best part is, we have several of the Brain Quest card decks, which can be used with the game, in addition to the thousands of questions provided. This is a great value for the price. It is educational, fun and really gives the younger kids confidence when the beat their older sibling.

I was shocked to see some of the negative reviews for this game. This is truly one of my children's favorite board games. I don't know of any other Q&A board game where my 5 year-old can play on par with 8 year-old. By separating questions by grade level both kids can get a chance to get the right answers and are very proud of themselves when they can jump a grade level or two to get bonus points. My only criticism is that there is no booster pack for additional questions.

I noticed some negative comments about this game. However, children who have been challenged and are inquisitive will enjoy just asking the questions. As for it being "just facts?" Yes, and there are a lot of facts that are interesting to know. It shows a cultural awareness and it "exercises the brain. In addition ... memorization being a valuable skill, recent research indicates that this ..... may even help prevent altzheimers! "

Although this game presents itself as an educational game it's missing the most important aspect of any game... entertainment value. Some of the questions are appropriate to the grade levels and some are not (by that I mean some are too easy and some are too obscure). My children and their friends have a hard time staying interested enough to finish the game. They prefer Trivial Pursuit for kids.

I played this game with my 8 and 5 year old homeschooled children. We had a great time. We all thought the game was fun and was like a more interesting and fun version of a children's Trivial Pursuit. Some questions were things they didn't know and some things were very easy for them, but I think that kept it interesting and challenging without being too frustrating. I had my 8 year old doing the 4th grade questions (she's going into the equivalent of 4th grade next year) and my 5 year old doing the 1st grade questions (he'll be going into the equivalent of 1st grade next year). I think next time I'll let my 8yo try the 3rd grade level. She did answer some 5th and 6th grade questions correctly when she tried for bonus points, so I think it is pretty flexible. I played at the 6th grade level and was challenged a couple of times, but got most of them right.

Here are some examples of easy and tough questions for the grades we played:
First Grade:
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?"

Fourth Grade:
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?

Sixth Grade:
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.
