We love being part of Asmodee’s Blogger Board Game Club and were delighted to receive Cortex Challenge to review. It seems a long time ago since half term when we reviewed Dice Academy, so much has changed since then! We were so pleased to have a new game to add to our collection and Cortex Challenge has been a huge hit with the whole family.
Cortex Challenge game review
Challenge your brain in a fun game that tests your thinking, memory and speed skills! Compete with other players in 8 different challenges which will make you use all your brain power: touch tests, duplicates, logical series, mazes, colour puzzles, and more.
Cortex Challenge is the exciting, brain-busting card game by Esdevium Games, which uses the same fast-paced approach to family fun popularised by Dobble (see our review here). Cortex Challenge tests up to six players’ memory, cognition, and sensory perception.
Start off by feeling the texture cards that are used during ‘Touch Challenges’, where players must guess what they are feeling. Players’ brain powers are stretched to the max as they race to be the first to match symbols, correctly remember all objects on a card or find the route out of mazes, amongst other tests.
If you win one of the challenges you can add one of 4 pieces to their brain puzzle which they must complete before their opponents in order to win the game. But be careful not to make a mistake which could you mean you have to miss a round!
What’s inside the box? 90 cards, 6 brains and rules
