SEATTLE, May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SimplyFun, LLC., publisher of award-winning educational board games, received its first Mensa Select Award for its newly released game, Amalgam. American Mensa is an organization for highly intelligent individuals who score in the top 2% on an accepted, standardized intelligence test. The organization has more than 57,000 members.
Each year, about 300 members of Mensa meet over one weekend to play and rate the year's newest board games. Games are judged on aesthetics, instructions, originality, play appeal and play value.
Only five games are selected to earn Mensa Select. Per their standards, Mensa Select games are original and creative in concept, challenging, well designed, a good value for the price, easy to comprehend and play, and, above all, fun.
"We are honored to have Amalgam chosen by the Mensa membership to receive our very first SimplyFun Mensa award," said Patty Pearcy, SimplyFun President and CEO. "Our mission celebrates the joy of learning through play for all ages and skill levels, including the gifted."
Amalgam is a game for ages 10 and up that focuses on building strategy and planning skills.

The theme of Amalgam is wizardry, with cards that depict potion ingredients and magical spells.
