It is a challenging puzzle-based game with difficult logical puzzles and logical thinking required for success. In Memorabilia Scavenger Hunt, players are presented with many items to find during the course of the game – a series of secret rooms with objects that can help them complete objectives in the game. However, the rooms themselves can be locked or opened, requiring players to think creatively to figure out how to unlock the clues in each room. It takes sophisticated spatial reasoning to win.
MOMENTUM: Maze is an enjoyable game that tests the physical skills required to navigate through a maze. In a sense, the maze is a game of skill and strategy. Players are required to work and think while maneuvering their little mouse-sized avatar, avoiding obstacles and climbing walls in order to reach the goal. Although it has been designed for girls, the game gives equal opportunity to all, using no gender barriers due to age.

STAR VS. samurai is a competitive arcade style game where players must defeat rivals using timing and reflexes in order to win. When players enter a room, they must face off against a number of enemies who use unique attacking and defensive techniques. Once enough enemies are defeated, the player is allowed to move to the next room. Players must use items given in each level to their advantage to make it through each level. In the final level, the player must beat the computer in a special game challenge to win.
CO-EXHABLES: Although we know that Monopoly and Risk are considered one of the best selling board games, what many people don’t realize is that there are a lot of board games that use abstract thinking and problem solving skills to conquer obstacles. In the case of Chess, each player receives a set of chess pieces that may be captured, traded, or sacrificed. The objective of the game is to be the first player to form the perfect symmetrical composition. In Beyblade: Metal Fusion, players will use color cards to build up combos that will hit the opponent. Each of these games requires strategy and keen observation skills.
DIVINATION DIX: Although everyone’s heard of the classic Monopoly game, few people know about its precursor, Divisions, which was a very different game. In this game, players used a variety of tools to build property and keep it from being mortgaged by others. One of the keys to winning was separating the properties into distinct groups and then developing these groups over time. Each group received a different amount of currency based on the value of their properties. Over time, the winner of this game could take all the available currency in the board.
