Brain Quest SMART Game!

This game is a great fit for any family!  However, it goes perfectly with those walking with Classical Conversations because it covers a lot of the same areas we've studied.  

Let me share!

Every player gets their own game piece with the word SMART.  Each letter stands for an area of study:

The World 

Your child will then use the spinner piece to discover which area of study they are going to have to answer a question about.

You then pull the card that lines up with the area of study and choose the level question based on your child's skill set.  Let me just say this game can be very humbling for parents, as well as students! (smile)

If you get the answer correct you get a color-coded chip that correlates to the subject.  (ex: purple for science, blue for world) When you collect three chips you turn them in for a game piece that fills in your personal game piece.

The first one to completely fill in their personal game piece wins!  

I love watching my boys compete against each other, and at the same time they cheer and encourage one another as well. 

The days are long but the years are short!  
Thank you Lord for giving us opportunities to stop, connect, laugh, and love!

  1. We have the older version of this game and LOVE IT! Thank you so much for this review. It allowed me to see how different the two are to see if we might want this one as well.

    You are so right about it falling in line with the Classical Conversations Curriculum. It's fun to pull the questions and say, "Oh, that's a Cycle 1 question, or that's a Cycle 3 question!"

    ~Blessings to you and your family.~
