Mummy Mystery

A one-player game that works wonders for a child’s cognitive thinking skills and logical reasoning, Mummy Mystery is an engaging puzzle that can occupy kids for as little as five minutes or as long as a couple hours! With 48 challenges and four levels of difficulty, this strategic maze game can be adapted to just about any child’s capability, although it was best for engaging the minds of our third grade testers. Play consists of picking a challenge page and arranging the nine tiles to build a “road” connecting the icons shown in the challenge. Bright, colorful, and creative, Mummy Mystery is sure to keep your kids engaged and thinking long after other board games have been played and forgotten. (Educational Insights, $19.99)
