Brain Building Board Games (that are easy on the eyes!)

ToysMegan PeronaComment

Stretch, lift, feel the burn. That's the way to build muscle, even brain muscle. Board games are a fun way to build up your brain power without realizing how much you're learning. It's like the mental equivalent of hiding spinach in a smoothie. Here's three games that you'll have fun playing, will stretch your mental abilities, and they look so pretty!

Juxtabo, Ages 6+ $29.99

Do you like chess, checkers and puzzle games? Then you'll love Juxtabo! This is a fun, 3D game where you stack colorful pieces to create the patterns on the challenge cards. The board is different every time you play because you create it out of the colorful pieces. By the end of the game you'll have awesome rainbow mountains!

Spectracube, Ages 6+ $22.99

Play 6 different, fast-paced games with this set of colorful dice. Maybe you'll be the first to place your cubes in straights and sets in Rummy Roll. Or be a Greedy Grabber as you try to be the quickest player to roll colors that match the center cubes and grab them! All six games are meant for family fun. Great for camping and family reunions!

Pick-a-Pig, Ages 8+ $9.99

This game might not be as pretty as the others, but it's "pretty" cute! Quick eyes, quick brain master skills needed to be the champion pig! Race to grab new cards that are the same or have only one difference. Similar to Blink or Speed. Want to play with more people? Combine with Pick-a-Dog and play with up to 8 players!
