Thinksmart Family Review & Giveaway...

I remember video games when I was younger.  Atari anyone?  I am probably dating myself there but Atari was where it was at and you played mindless games.   Now video gaming is so much more.  In our home we have a Wii and we enjoy bowling, golfing and even hula hooping all from our Wii console....video games have come a long way baby!

On top of the fun physical and other arcade type games you can also challenge your brain.  The newest offering from Thinksmart is Thinksmart:  Family.  In this game (available for Wii and Nintendo DS) you can play puzzle type games to challenge your mind and body.  Here are some of the key features...
  • Over 8,000 exercises for well toned minds and bodies.
  • Individualized coaches who motivate, track progress, and establish a "THINK" quotient to show improvement!
  • Customizable avatars, each of which gains access to the "Think Institute" to create a custom, daily plan.
  • Up to 16 players can compete in multi-player rivalries, with modes like Tournament, Competition, and Endurance.
  • 7 different categories: language comprehension, math, memory, logical and three-dimensional reasoning, readiness of mind and physical fitness.
This is NOT Q-Bert or Pac-Man people!  This game really does work your brain and it will bring out your competitive streak!  This game is rated "E" for everyone but I do want to point out that, in my opinion, the games are too challenging for younger children.  I think this game is most appropriate for adults and older (preteen and up) children.  However, my oldest children are 4 so maybe kids start learning more complex puzzles earlier in which case I am sorry to say I am probably NOT smarter than a 5th grader!

I am still a fan of good, old mindless fun...there is a definite place for that in my life.  I also see tremendous value in using video game consoles for other aspects as well such as physical fitness and mind puzzles.  Thinksmart Family is an excellent choice to challenge your brain (and your friends and family!) with fun puzzles and mind games.   Amazon is running a huge special on Thinksmart for Wii right now....only $19.99!!  You can also click here to find a retailer near you.

Guess what readers?  Thinksmart is giving one lucky RBM reader a copy of ThinkSmart:  Family in your choice of Wii or Nintendo DS version.  Thanks Thinksmart!  Here is how to enter...

I'd say that I'd challenge my wife, but I'd probably get soundly thrashed. I think I'll choose my kid (and still get soundly thrashed). I didn't know about the Amazon sale - that sounds like a decent deal.
