Tangoes Brainiac Review (Smart Toys and Games)

Tangoes Brainiac
What It Is

Tangoes Brainiac offers 54 challenging puzzles based on ancient Chinese Tangram puzzles. The object is to form the image on the card using seven Tangoes puzzle pieces. The game comes with two sets of seven puzzle pieces, 54 challenge cards, solutions, game rules, and a storage box. To play, choose a challenge card. The bottom right corner of the card will tell you whether or not you need one set of puzzle pieces or two. Try to duplicate the design shown using all seven (or 14) pieces. The solution is shown on the bottom on the back of each card. The game can be played independently or you can challenge a friend to see who can solve the puzzle in the least amount of time. The Tangoes pieces can also be used to create abstract designs, human forms, animals, or whatever kids want to create.

As you rotate the pieces and identify the shapes needed, you'll get the hang of it and have fun solving these engaging puzzles.
