What It Is
What It Is
The classic game of Simon has gotten a whole new look, and there are four ways to play. Simon Flash is a new take on the game of Simon, but instead of an electronic circular playing piece, Simon Flash comes with four, individual electronic colored, two-inch cubes. (Hasbro calls them "cubes". They're not exactly equal on each side, but we'll go with it.) The cubes "talk" to each other electronically, so they know where you're placing them and when you've solved a puzzle. There are four different games. In Simon Shuffle, you have to arrange the cubes in the correct color sequence. In Simon Lights Off, shuffle the cubes around until each cube is no longer lit up. In Simon Secret Color, move the cubes around until they are all the same color. And then, of course, there is Simon Classic, where you correctly repeat a color sequence. These games can be played solo or with other people. It comes with a portable game case, so you can take the Simon cubes on the go.
Why It’s Fun
This is a cool new, even more interactive way to play a classic game, thanks to the manipulation of the cubes. Kids will like the variety of ways to play, while adults who remember the original Simon will enjoy playing the classic game in a new way. The games are fast and easy to play, and each time is different, so kids will want to play over and over.
Who It’s For
Simon Flash is for ages 8 and up.
What to Be Aware of
Make sure the cubes are lined up in a straight line with their sides touching, otherwise the cubes won't be able to "talk" to each other.
Simon Flash comes with eight AAA batteries.
