Cortex Challenge 2 – Board Game Club

So this months game from the board game club was…..Cortex Challenge 2 – The Brain Game

Challenge your brain in a fun game that tests your thinking, memory and speed skills! compete with other players in 8 different challenges which will make you use all your brain power: touch tests, observation, analysis, mazes, coordination and more. Cortex Challenge 2 could be the game for you!


Cortex Challenge 2 tests up to six players’ memory, cognition, and sensory perception. It even includes texture cards that are used during “touch challenges” in which players must guess what they are feeling, adding a unique element that is often neglected in games.

Players’ brain powers are stretched to the max as they race to be the first to match symbols, correctly remember all objects on a card or find the route out of mazes, amongst many other tests!

Winning challenges allows players to add pieces to their brain puzzle which they must complete before their opponents in order to win the game. Cortex Challenge 2 is sure to tax the mental abilities of players both young and old!


What We Thought

OMG THIS GAME WAS AMAZING! D is very academic and was itching to play this as soon as it arrived. It states ages 8+ but i’m sure if you have a little brain box you could let them loose on this game. We liked that it had an educational element, challenging Numeracy and spacial awareness as well as much more!

Other cortex games can be purchased as well, but I don’t see this getting old any time soon!


Portability: 8/10 

Good size Box box but could do with something a bit more sturdy for travel. It would be great to take on holiday or on a long haul flight if it could be a bit more portable

Engagement: 10/10 

The girls loved this, so did I! When I told them it was time to pack up and that we weren’t playing any more all hell broke loose because they were having so much fun!

Overall: 10/10

This is my first 5 start 10/10 game review. Amazing game. I could trust them to play it together without my input. I can also put myself to the test. This game can be played as a family, or if you have friends over, can take a grown up turn. Fabulous! Well worth the money!


Needless to say, we are looking forward to next month’s instalment from:

(As a side note, we were sent this before we moved. I haven’t had a chance to post this due to problems getting our internet on, and also me being poorly! So apologies to Board game Club)
