What's being featured at toy shows in 2009. - December 12, 2008

(PRNewsChannel) / Montreal, Quebec / Green and global games may be making an eco-friendly imprint in the toy and game industry, but intelligent game play that focuses on fun is making the move to the top of the “What’s Hot List.”

The following games for players 7+ have managed to easily conquer the challenge of getting children and adults to try something that's good for them.

Cognitive Creations™, a clever and colorful line by Family Games America™, includes Inversé™ and Quantumino™, both offering players challenging obstruction and construction dilemmas with an understanding of spatial skills. Position the wooden playing pieces on the grid, turning them onto different ends so no two stand the same.

For Quantumino™, more of a solitaire puzzle than a game, the challenge is to fit 16 of the 17 3D pentamino pieces into the playing frame. Remove a different piece each time you play.

Three new strategy games on the market, Stratum™, reveal or conceal the pieces, Sprocket™, about movement and mechanics, and One Up™, a calculating game of mounting moves developed by a group of American inventors, sharpen spatial and planning skills as well as a real blast to play.

Another ‘mover’ and ‘shaker’ in the game business is California-based GaZima Games™ who’s got the smarts when it comes to mathematical mayhem. Under license by Family Games America Inc.™, Gobsmacked!™ tests a player’s memory using patterned playing pieces and a rotating vertical board, while Battle of the Sixes™ shakes things up with dice and digits.

So now that game products have been safely plastered with lead, chocking, and 'small part' warning labels both on the packaging and on company websites, let’s wrap our minds around the ‘clever content’ of the products and pastimes we mentally absorb!
