Cool Circuits Brain Game - Harry L. Nelson and Hiroshi Yamamoto

Cool Circuits Brain Game

We picked up this game several years ago for our son. Not only did he love it, but our daughters and I enjoyed it as well. It is a solo play game, but also a game that gets progressively harder. The description of the game is:

“Electrify your brain with this challenging puzzler! The object is to place all of the pieces on the board to successfully complete the circuit; do so, and the entire board lights up! Cool Circuits emphasizes spatial reasoning and abstract thinking with over 40 different challenges ranging from student to expert. Can you solve them all?”

The game contains:

1 light up board
8 fluorescent 3-D puzzle pieces 
40 challenge cards

The cards are double sided for a total of 80 puzzles. And they fit in a draw under the playing area. Thus making it a great game for road trips or for travel. The game won game of the year in 2013 in the category of puzzle games. 

I am uncertain if any of us has completed all the puzzles. But we have done many. And circle back to it every now and again and knock out a number. The cards are numbered, on a little tab. My only complaint is the cards or just glossy magazine style paper. And they can become crumpled and torn easily. Especially when the kids were younger. A great game for all ages.
