My husband and my 11-year old played and, because I left the game out, continued to go back for more logic challenges. But my 14-year old played the ENTIRE deck of challenge cards in one sitting. Just for fun!! 🙂
Because it is fun. We love the Balance Beans game and think you will, too.
The game hits all the right spots. It’s:
- educational (logic, math, physics)
- engaging & fun
- works for multiple ages
You’ll get a see-saw plus many colorful beans that are individual or stuck together which weigh different amounts.
Your challenge is to put the given preset beans on the seesaw then add whatever else is on the card to make it balance out.
In the photograph below, you can see that the preset beans (shown on the gray seesaw) are the red twosie beans. You’re tasked to add one orange onesie bean.
Move the beans around, experimenting, to figure out how to make the seesaw balance.
Balance Beans provides 40 challenge cards in different skill levels (with solutions on the back) ranging from easy to super hard.
I appreciate this range because it works for both growing in your skills as a player as well as allowing for a range player ages and abilities.
It’s always good to have a one player game option around — especially one like Balance Beans that is both fun and engaging to the brain.
We highly recommend it.
Disclosure: Think Fun sent me a complimentary copy of this game (THANKS!) but that did not influence my opinion nor the opinion of my family.
