Recently, Think Fun revamped the look of their classic traffic jam game, Rush Hour. Now in it's sleek and gray scale version, Rush Hour may be found on any Mensa-hopeful's shelf to help exercise your brain.
I know many of my OT friends have been using Rush Hour for years. It is a fun yet intellectual game rated for kids 8 and up. Rush Hour is available at many stores from Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and specialty toy shops around the way, as well as straight off the Think Fun website. For $14.99, this is a wonderful game to keep a child or adult occupied on a rainy afternoon. Because of the pieces, it doesn't travel too well. However, there is an app for that. Rush Hour Free and the full version Rush Hour (for $2.99) are available on the App Store so you can play any time, any where. My kids or I will play in the car, at a restaurant, doctor's offices etc. There is even a mini Rush Hour Holiday version for .99 cents with presents and a penguin. Really cute.
For a game that has been around since 1996, Rush Hour continues to provide edutainment to the young and young at heart. Hmm...I wonder if there has ever been a clinical study on the benefits of this game on the aging brain....
Though I received Rush Hour for gratis in return for my review, my thoughts are my own, as out of the box they may be.
