Smart Games Puzzle Review

I love board games! Know what I don’t love? Games that are flimsy, can get ruined by a spilled drink and aren’t durable enough for my kids. Smart Games puzzles are perfect because they’re durable, fun and will last a long time. I’m thrilled to show these single player puzzles that I use as a reward for my kids. They’re having fun, the puzzles are stimulating for their brain activity and they’re learning! Take a look at our review samples below and visit my affiliate links for purchase.

Smart Games Temple Connection

Smart Games Temple Connection helps the player’s mind turn road maps into real-life products. The booklet starts with very easy solutions, and then progresses to harder/expert floor plans. You place the temple based on number of roofs, temple 1-3, based on the instructions and build the roads and stairways to connect them to form a complete path. My budding architect loves this game!

Smart Games Snow White

Smart Games Snow White is played two ways: From the inside of the house as seen below or from the outside of the house. You help the men find Snow White, as the last place left in the house is for her. The arrangements, like the other games, start off easy and progress to expert level. The pieces slide and kind of snap into place so they stay put, and the pieces are great for identifying colors, patterns and processing a picture into a real-life representation of the pattern.

Smart Games Jump In

Smart Games jump in is a great way to challenge your mind. The game has pre-made setups that tell you where to place the bunnies, mushrooms and foxes. The goal is to get the bunnies into the brown bunny holes by following the rules. The mushrooms are stationary, the foxes can move forward or backward and the bunnies can jump horizontally and vertically, but must make it to an open space after the first jump. The challenges get progressively harder as the player’s skill level increases.

Smart Games IQ Focus

Smart Games IQ Focus is another single-player game designed to tickle your brain. The booklet has 120 puzzle combinations where the inside 9 squares, seen as green here, have to match the pattern shown in the picture. All of the squares must be organized so the final product has the squares in the center arranged to match the photo as visible through the square on the outside of the box. Great for fine motor skills, problem solving and processing pictures into physical representations, this game is great for kids and adults!

Smart Games puzzle review overall opinion

When I first saw these, I thought of the golf tee game I played years ago at a local restaurant. They left a game on each table so individuals and families could entertain themselves while waiting for food. Unlike the golf tee game, there are booklets with these puzzles that have a long list of challenges. In addition, Smart games single player puzzles are a great way to entertain kids and adults alike, and even though they are single player,  my kids play them together and problem solve as a team. These are super fun, great for cognitive skills and I love having them in our collection.

As an Occupational Therapist, I adore these games for many reasons. They cover such a wide range of skills! Patterns, fine motor skills, spacial awareness, processing, focus, visual discrimination, attention…the list goes on and on and each activity can be tailored for different individuals needs. Plus, the colors are stimulating and fun!

Where can you find them? Shop online at Amazon and the Smart Games website.
