Rush Hour is one of ThinkFun's most popular stem toys for
boys and girls, and has been an international bestseller for over 20 years,
with over 10 million units sold worldwide. It's a fun traffic jam logic game
that comes with 40 challenges of increasing difficulty, from beginner to
expert, and is one of the best gifts you can buy for kids who like smart games
and a challenge. Rush Hour is made with high quality components, and comes
with a very clear and easy to understand instruction manual - you'll be able
to play within minutes of opening the box. Like all of ThinkFun's games, Rush
Hour is built to develop critical thinking skills. Playing through the
increasingly difficult challenges will improve logical reasoning and critical
thinking skills, all through fun gameplay. Honk! Honk! It's
gridlock and the little red car can't move. The player is a traffic cop in the
Rush Hour Traffic Jam Puzzle where the objective is to get the red car off the
road. To play, pick one of 40 challenge cards; solutions are printed on the
back of each card. Then set up the cars and buses in a specified pattern on
the 6-inch-square road grid. Move the vehicles one by one (obey those traffic
laws!) until the red car can escape the traffic jam. There are four levels of
difficulty. Kids can alternate turns with another player or just "play in
traffic" alone. The game from Binary Arts received a national award from Mensa
and is used in elementary school math classes. The design includes clear
instructions printed on the sturdy box, which can be used both as a playing
tray and for storage. The game cards stow away in a drawer in the road grid.
This is a 1999 Parents' Choice recommended toy. --Marcie Bovetz See all
