This year's collection of games is exhilarating and challenging, yet still retains the basic mission of Blue Orange: clever games with easy to learn rules that include countless fun variations on gameplay to continually offer new and unique challenges. These new games, created by world renowned designers, will delight kids of all ages and provide hours of fun and family bonding.

Kaboom helps players build dexterity and motor control as they race to build and knock down towers made of wooden blocks. Speed and precision are essential as children work on focus and attention in the mad dash of construction and destruction.

Top that! is a fun magic-themed game that helps players work on fine motor, visual processing, and cognitive speed. Players must match their stack of five magic props to the challenge card drawn, often making elements appear and disappear to satisfy the requirements.

Rooster Run is an active memory and matching game with toy like components that make the game more fun and engaging for players. Using rooster rings, players use their hands like beaks to collect earth worm tokens and search for matches, encouraging both visual acuity and processing.

Brix is a fun 3D twist on tic tac toe with an additional strategic quirk—two blocks are attached together –one that has your symbol/color and one that has your opponent's-- so players need to think carefully about placing their bricks since it could give their opponent an advantage. With three different match variations, this game will work players' brains and encourage the development of strategic and problem solving play.

Gigamons is a beautifully illustrated elemental memory game that teaches players the basic components of natural chemistry through a fun and friendly medium. Players will develop memory and problem solving skills as well as sharpen focus and attention.  

Dr. Eureka, designed by the award winning Roberto Fraga, is a tactile problem solving and brainteasing matching game. Players pass colorful molecules between test tubes to match the pattern on a challenge card, building both cognitive processing and dexterity skills.

Fast Flip is a speed based matching game that develops high level visual processing skills to quickly spot and count different fruit on the cards. Our special secret formula ensures that there is always only one solution between cards, creating a fun and addicting game for all. Play with the included tokens for another set of variations on an already fun and exhilarating base game.

Pinpoint! is a spot the differences game with a unique process-of-elimination twist. Each card contains five images and only one of them is the original image, lacking variations. The first to work out all the differences and spot the original wins.

Vroom Vroom is a racing based game that helps younger players build dexterity and counting skills. Players roll wooden snails around a track they build themselves using only one finger and counting steps using the clever step counting system on the rotating shell. The order switches every round so no one will be in last place for long.

Three new Super Genius games are joining the collection! Alphabet assists little ones with mastering their letters and builds the foundation that will turn them into speedy readers. Compound Words introduces longer and more complicated words to older readers and helps them better understand the complexities of the English language. Multiplication 2 helps young mathematicians on their more advanced times tables.

This year's new releases are guaranteed to be both challenging and charming, and work the brains of players of all ages. Blue Orange hopes that its games will continue to delight and remain successful in the coming years.
