I have been a big fan of Think Fun games ever since I discovered Rush Hour many years ago. All of their games challenge you and sharpen your thinking skills but are also extremely fun. I now have the Rush Hour app on my iPad, and this logic puzzle game challenges me daily.
When I attended Toy Fair 2013 last month I was given a new Think Fun game to review. WordARound can be described very easily. It is a box full of round cards. On each card are three different colored circles, each with a word written around each circle. You turn over a card and whichever circle has been selected, the first person to be able to read the word first wins that round. It sounds easy, but reading a word in a circle where you don’t know which is the first letter, takes time.
There are so many things that I love about this game:
- The directions are simple – It doesn’t take an hour to figure out how to play, it takes about 5 seconds.
- The game is compact and great for travel – it is the size of a round deck of cards.
- Cleanup – All there needs to be done is put cards back in a deck.
- WordARound can be played by all ages from tween and up. This is truly a game that families can play together and everyone will enjoy and all will be on equal footing.
Full Disclosure: I received the two games reviewed above for free. I did not receive any money and all reviews are my own.
