It’s the 2020 edition of Professor Noggin with all new photos! Kids will enjoy transferring their energy to learning about Energy, Motion, and Gases (that may get a few giggles from the boys) in the Wonders of Science kids card game. A variety of fun topics keeps the kids game interesting for everyone!
Each of these card games tests players’ knowledge of various topics at two skill levels. Each game consists of 30 large, sturdy, cards, a three-numbered dice, and instructions. The cards have color illustrations or photography portraying an animal or object and two sets of trivia questions on the other. Easy questions are geared for younger children and people with little knowledge of the subject, while the hard level is for those with a little more knowledge. One player rolls the dice, picks up a card, and asks another player a question. If the player gets the question right, he or she gets to keep it, but if they answer it wrong, the reader tells the all players the correct answer, and it goes back to the bottom of the pile. Everyone keeps on playing until the cards are all gone, and the player with the most cards wins. An example of an easy question, from the Life in the Ocean game on the Great White Shark card might be “Are all sharks dangerous?” whereas a harder question, from the same card might be “What is my skeleton made of?”
The game concept is simple, and the topics are familiar, making this educational trivia game a fun “diversion” from your school day that older and younger kids can play together, on the same footing. – Jess

How to play?:
Players take turns rolling the die and asking each other questions from the cards. If a question is answered correctly, the card is won; if answered incorrectly, the card is returned to the bottom of the pile. The player with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner. Players have a few chances throughout the game to get a Noggin’s Choice card. This means they can choose a card from any other player, and get ahead. Remember the correct answers. If a question is not answered correctly the first time, that question will come up again.
