Clever New Memory Game
Brain Box Animal is in the same high quality educational format as the popular Brain Box USA and Brain Box World. This clever new memory recall game challenges players to memorize as many details as they can in just 10 short seconds! Four wonderful themes will keep young minds engaged in this fast-paced game of concentration and detail.

Test Your Recall to Win the Card
Grab a sturdy card out of the box and flip over the sand timer. Your opponent has 10 seconds to take in as much detail as possible about the animal pictured, in this case the jaguar. When the timer runs out quickly hide the card and hand him the die to roll. He rolled a 5? Simply read him question #5, "In which continent is the jaguar found?" If he can answer correctly he keeps the card, if not just put it back in the box. The player with the most cards after 10 minutes wins the game!

What kind of questions are asked?
Here are sample questions from two cards:

1) How many lemmings are shown?
2) What color is the fox near the lemming?
3) Do these animals live in skulks or herds?
4) When is this fox's fur thinner and brown?
5) Are both foxes facing the same direction?
6) How many animals are shown in total?
7) What favorite food is shown?
8) Is this animal common or threatened?

1) Are onagers native to Australia?
2) Are all animals shown facing the same direction?
3) Do onagers live between 25-30 or 25-40 years?
4) How many wolves are shown?
5) Are onagers herbivores?
6) How many animals are shown in total?
7) Are the onagers shown lying down or running?
8) Onagers are hunted by what kind of animal?

    Fun, Fast Paced Game January 15, 2013
    Reviewer: Purplemom  
    My children - Aged 14, 12, 7 - enjoy playing this game. For a young one stil learning to read, their is a fair amount to be read on the cards. However, a bit of teamwork can allow another player to read to them or for 20 seconds for slower readers. Such small adjustments have helped even the playing field at my house and reduce stress on the youngest. Everyone who has played seems to have learned a new fact or two about animals. An added bonus, according to my girls, is that the short playing time means Mom is more likely to okay a short break for this game in the middle of school time. I love that the Brain Box games provide a guaranteed short break in the middle of the day, without worry that the game may stretch out too long and disrupt chores or school.

    Great Game! November 8, 2010
    Reviewer: Jacky from Brownsville, IN United States  
    My children are ages 9, 7, and 6 and love this game!  This is one of the few games that they will get out and play all by themselves.  But even if they want Mom and Dad to play, we don't mind playing with them!  It plays fast enough (takes 10 seconds to study the card!) that it doesn't get boring and very educational as well.  Brain box animals not only has taught my children about animals, but also about parts of the world as you have to study where that animal comes from.  Sometimes my kids get out the cards and study them on their own, just to be sure that the next time they play they will get the right answer!  I look forward to buying more of the Brain box games and highly recommend them!
