Description: The makers of Spin Out and Rush Hour seek to "push [you] farther, probe deeper and think more creatively through game play." Brainteaser games include Math Dice, which challenges you to use addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and exponents to generate equations that result in a target number; and Izzi, which gives you 64 tiles from which to build a square so that all edges of each tile match -- black to black and white to white. Gifts for Grown-Ups include Subtrax, in which you place pegs on the game board to match the illustrations depicted, then jump over a field of blue pegs until only the orange peg is left standing. Spatial reasoning games include Cover Your Tracks, Serpentiles, Brick By Brick, Shape By Shape, Block By Block, and Top This! Mult-Challenge strategy games include River Crossing and Sudoku. Play River Crossing, Rush Hour, and Tipover online.
