This multi-award winner is one of our bestsellers. Perhaps itâ€™s the fun of setting up the game board based on pictures of traffic jams and then plotting your escape as you slide cars and trucks out of the way. Or maybe itâ€™s because Rush Hour looks like a kidâ€™s game but itâ€™s challenging to even the best adult puzzlers. Whatever the reason, this world-renowned game will rev up your concentration, spatial awareness and sequencing abilities. Now if only your morning commute were this mentally rewarding and fun.

The new game replaced the "milk chocolate" colored pieces with white ones that are easier to see but look less like chocolate -- personally I'd take dark, milk, and white chocolate colored pieces. The older version also had a cute story that explained why you had to lay out the pieces in certain ways that was fun and could be intriguing to kids; this version has twice the number of puzzles to layout but only a boring sudoku idea that frankly isn't there -- this isn't sudoku, it really isn't. The older game as had a very neat bag that came so you could carry the game with you but this version's box is small enough that you can easily carry it as is. Finally I miss the stand-up book from the older version, the two little booklets have to just sit on the table taking up some of your playing room.
If you could combine the current size and number of puzzles with the stand-up book it would be almost an ideal solo game if you are a visual and logical thinker.
Whether a child is focusing on a specific skill or general knowledge all of these games make the child use their brain. When I found out about ThinkFun's new game Chocolate Fix I was ecstatic! I was even more excited when given the opportunity to try out the game and review it!
The game is for ages 8 and up, ideal for my elementary education degree!
The first thing that I noticed about this game is simply how cute it is! Most children love chocolate and will enjoy the cute little pieces that the game has.
This game is very similar to sudoku however a little more visual. There are three colors and three shapes within the game. There are three triangles (one beige, one brown, one pink) three squares (one beige, one brown, one pink) and three circles (bet you can guess the colors!) Also in the box is a set of directions and a set of solutions. The booklet gives the user clues of how to solve the puzzle but leaves some pieces out of the clues. (Much like how a sudoku puzzle leaves blank squares.)
This is a beginner clue.
The booklet has different leveled puzzles starting from beginner and working to advanced. This is perfect because it can accommodate for all children in a classroom! It also has room for children to grow! They can't get bored because there is always a new challenge! (There are 80 different challenges! Wow!)
If the user gets stuck he or she can turn to the solutions for help, or if they finish to check their answer. ThinkFun is so smart and did not put the solutions in order so that the person playing wont cheat while looking at solutions.
I played this for a little while in my bed and honestly I loved it. I am not great at puzzles so I really enjoyed the challenge of thinking through it and getting the right answer. If I loved it and I am 20 I can only imagine how much students would love it!
It would be really fun to make a worksheet for students to log which challenges they did and explain how they found answers as an extra credit project or even as an individual quiet time activity. This would also be a good choice for an indoor recess or free time!
It would also be a good gift for parents to buy for the kids because it is fun but educational at the same time. Everyone likes a challenge sometimes!
I also enjoy how it is an individual game. You are not trying to beat anyone or rush through it. This allows the user to sit and think about it very deeply- which is something that rarely happens with board games.
