Mindware-Q-Bitz Classic Visual Challenge Game
The Q-Bitz Classic is a game that:
> Cuts through boredom
> Challenges children’s minds
> Provides practice on understanding the idea of symmetry
> Develops visual dexterity
> Stimulates quick-thinking
> Offers an element of competition
> Inspires spatial reasoning skills
> Increases memory skills
In the game are 80 distinct puzzle cards used to compete with another player. The game is played by 2 to 4 players of ages 8 and up. Included with the cards are four wooden trays and four sets of 16 cubes. The idea is to manipulate the cubes in the container to recreate the patterns on the game cards. The person who garners the most cards wins. Kids will keep coming back for more games since no two games are alike.
Mindware-Q-Bitz Junior Visual Learning Game
The difference between the Junior-Q-Bitz and the Classic-Q-Bitz Games by Mindware is the inclusion of a parent guide that allows parents to support supplemental learning and visual dexterity practices. The Junior game adds fun and excitement that will bring your child back to play, time after time.
The Junior version includes a set of four cubes, all in the same colour. There is also a sturdy wooden tray. When a pattern card is turned over, players attempt to match the pattern with their set of cubes, all at the same time. The player who finishes the design accurately and fastest shouts, “Q-Bitz” and is the winner of the card. Another take on the game can occur if the players roll the cubes like dice.
Designed to be played by young ones of the ages of 3 to 8, Junior Q-Bitz:
> Encourages pattern matching
> Increases spatial reasoning
> Builds problem-solving skills
> Develops visualization, and more
Mindware-Q-Bitz Extreme Visual Learning Game
Mindware’s Extreme version of Q-Bitz includes several types of visual challenges played in different ways. Everyone will want to try out their skills. Each player gets his or her individual Q-Bitz Extreme-board and 16 cubes. The first person to replicate the curved pattern wins the card. The player who wins the most cards at the end of the game wins.
> The patterns are more difficult
> Rolling of the cubes is allowed
> Players get 10 seconds to study the cards
> A second-round can take place to create the designs in reverse
> The game is suitable for anyone 8 and up
This Mindware game won both the Major Fun Award and the Teachers’ Choice Award.
