6 Different, fun and engaging games which includes:
1. Enigma– a strategy game in a box and it needs a methodical deduction to figure out the opponent’s code before they decipher yours. To win this game, users need to analyze information and apply logical reasoning. The key is to keep a tab of the opponents (computer) moves and its numbers. Mind boggling enough to make you want to master the unique strategy.
2. King’s Game -An interesting game where we compete with the opponent (computer) to win the “Golden Crown”. This game needs a great deal of understanding and calculation on how to win the crown. Bag the shiny gems along the way, and this can make or break your chances of winning the game.
3. Lights On– Light up all the empty squares with bulbs. The square has a number and the light bulbs around it need to be switched on to match up this number! But there are other numbers around it too and what do we do to the zero?? Wondering? It’s a puzzle, it’s interesting and it will light up your mind too.
4. 2 Flags– A group of 5 competing scout’s race to each other’s flags. Their rank is an advantage but not always. They are all lined on a board and they can hop square to square in all directions and can push other each other out of the game. The computer as our competitor makes it tough but challenging. The game helps hone lots of our thinking skills.
5. What’s in the box? a unique and creative puzzle game that gradually advance in their complexity level. In each challenge users need to perform a unique sequence of actions in order to move on to the next challenge! To succeed, thinking out of the box is required. The game doesn’t give out clues or hints, you can succeed only by applying your mind.
6. Checkers- A strategy game played on an 8×8 checkerboard. The origin of Checkers is known to be somewhere around 3000 BC. The game is played by two opponents, on opposite sides of the gameboard. One player has the dark pieces; the other has the light pieces. Players alternate turns in the attempt to be the first to capture all the opponent pieces. We need to capture the board before the opponent (computer) does
