We had the opportunity to facilitate a review for IQ Steps from SmartGames. Although we received a sample, this is our honest and unbiased review.
My teenage son and I really get into logic
games and puzzles. The kind that you really
have to use your brain. We like to challenge
each other to see who can figure it out first.
My son is very smart, and besides building
his smarts, I believe it really helps his ever
growing ego when he gets one or two up on
his mom. I am always looking for games
that might be a fun new challenge
We received IQ STEPS from SmartGames .
It's a brain-building game for one player.
It's a game/puzzle that may first appear to
be too easy. I assure you, with this one
you will have to watch your step.
The object of IQ Steps is to fit all of the puzzle
pieces onto the grid, one by one. It will
sound simple with 8 pieces. Watch your step!
The pieces have two layers and overlap each
other. You will only be able to fit all the pieces
on the game board when you place them
in the right orientation and order.
Choose a challenge and place the designated
puzzle pieces as indicated on the board. You
have to try and fit remaining puzzle pieces
onto the game board. There will be only one
possible solution for each of the 120 challenges.
SmartGames has an impressive catalog of games.
Any puzzle enthusiast would be delighted about
their awesome collection. The series IQ was
designed by Raf Peeters. There are six different
designs (so far), their all quite interesting and
Designing new SmartGames is a challenge
every time. The complete design process
itself is a giant puzzle. Each element has
to fit, everyone at Smart contributes. The
designer team at Smart says one of the
most important aspects of their work is
choosing the right combination of game rules
and game components. The systematical
choice for quality is retrieved in every phase
of the product development. From the concept
over selection of the challenges to the
graphical design of the packaging and the
booklet that comes with the game, every
detail is processed with lots of care.
My son and I are impressed with IQ Steps
from SmartGames. We both look forward
to getting other games from them as well.
We haven't figured out all 120 challenges,
but my son says he will get them all
