Think Fun Games and WordARound Review

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. 
I also checked out another game from Think Fun, Visual Brainstorms: The Smart Thinking Game and it is great for teens or adults that enjoy brain teasers. The game consists of a stack of cards with challenges such as puzzles, logic problems, mazes and more. It can be played alone or with others.
Check out the Think Fun Store. There are games that will sharpen the mind of all ages, from early learning to adult. And for some of the other fun toys that I found at Toy Fair 2013, check out my list of 12 Great Toys for Teens and Tweens. A list of board games will be coming out soon.

Full Disclosure: I received the two games reviewed above for free. I did not receive any money and all reviews are my own.


  1. This would be great for my teens. They love brainteasers.

  3. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell :

    I used to buy entire books of logic puzzles. I can’t even tell you how many I’ve done in my life. This game sounds like a blast!!! I’m a huge game person.

    This would be a game we would all enjoy!
