-Overview-

It's easy enough to go to your local gym and workout to strengthen your body, but adding "muscle" to your memory cannot be done by bench-pressing and running laps. Lucky for you, ThinkFun has the perfect game for you to flex your memory and give it that lean, mean 6-pack you've always wanted your brain to sport the next time you go the the beach. Get ready for some intense memorization and focus as you and a group of your friends attempt to out memorize each other and do your very best to not be distracted. Oh, look! A butterfly!......

Distraction is a card game that is comprised of two sets of cards. The first is a deck of 54 round Number cards. The second is a standard sized deck of 50 Distraction cards. These two decks will be used in the game, but remain separate from each other at all times.

-Game Set Up-

To set up the game, have all the players sit down around the playing area. Shuffle the Number and the Distraction decks, keeping them separate.

Place the shuffled Distraction deck face-down in the middle of the playing area where all the players can easy reach it. Decide, as a group, if you will be playing the blue questions or the purple questions. Note that there is no difference in difficulty or topic in regards to the different colored groups.

Such a cute game! As a straight-up learning game, Distraction really does help you develop strategies for remembering number sequences. From a fun standpoint, the distraction questions are amusing and we had a great time listening to everyone's responses. Some of the questions were silly, "Would you rather kiss a jellyfish or step on a crab?" Some of the questions were more thoughtful. We played with an 11-year old boy and a 14-year old girl and between trying to answer the questions and remember the numbers we laughed the whole time. After playing, the teenage girl turned to me and asked, "Can I take this game home?" It was a hit. Thinkfun sent me this game in order to review it.

I wasn't sure if this would be frustrating or fun when we first bought the game for our children. You take turns drawing number cards placing them in a pile and then you have to recite the growing sequence of digits. If that isn't challenging enough, occasionally you will draw a Distraction card where you have to answer a question and then proceed to recite the growing sequence of digits. We have a 7 and 9 year old (girls) and they looove this game! It is definitely challenging (even for adults) but they keep asking to play it! This is an awesome game! Being compact, I think it would make a great traveling game as well although the one thing it doesn't have is a bag to hold the cards - that would be it's only downfall to me. I would definitely recommend this for a gift for a child.

Designed as a brain-building and memory-training game for 2 to 4 players, DISTRACTION does indeed give your brain a multi-level workout.

Players each get a supply of round number cards in random order face-down. Digits may be any mix of 1 through 9. There is no equal or "fair" division of the cards among the players.

Players take turns flipping over their top card and placing it on a central stack, concealing all the ones below it. Each time you add a card to the top of the stack, you must call out the numbers in the correct order, from bottom to the top, from memory. After 8 or 10 cards the going starts to get a little tough, even with the help of hearing the other players call them out on their turns.

To add to the challenge, if a player turns up an orange card, that player now takes the top card from the DISTRACTION deck which has questions on it the player must answer before going back and calling out the number sequence in the right order. Now the question to answer digs into an entirely different part of the brain--something personal and triggering other senses, for example, "For a pizza topping, do you prefer anchovies or bacon?" or "What's the last book you finished reading?" You can feel your brain refocusing on this new subject while trying to park the number sequence you've memorized where you can retrieve it once you've answered the distracting question.

This is a great game for people skilled in multi-tasking. Linear thinkers may find the interruption unnerving and even derailing if the number chain is 6 or more in length when the distraction arrives.

A player unable to repeat the correct order gets the number stack added to their own hand.

Distraction is a very fun thinking game which plays quickly. I always lose even when playing my 6 yr old cousin. I don't mind losing, I bought this game to work on my memory recall-ability compromised from a traumatic brain injury 11 yrs ago. Sometimes I feel I am beating a dead dog, but I can't just give up. Thanks Thinkfun your games have helped me! My doctors say it is only "splinter information" but even if so, the more splinter information I can learn can't possibly be a bad thing.
