Bellevue, Washington based SimplyFun, LLC., the publisher of award-winning educational board games, recently released Rolling Tides, a new life and thinking skills game developed by board game designer Andrew Harman that focuses on decision making and spatial reasoning.
Rolling Tides is for two to four players ages 8 and up. Players build decision making skills by choosing which die on the gameboard to move or re-roll while trying to create or block groups of matching dice.
Players also build spatial reasoning skills as they evaluate the gameboard and consider the various dice placement options. Through this game, players can also learn about tide pools and the tide pool creatures that comprise the theme of Rolling Tides.
Life and Thinking Skills, one of four skill sets that are the focus of game development at SimplyFun, include evaluating options, learning from mistakes and making informed choices. SimplyFun games that hone in on these skills help to prepare children to analyze situations to make proper decisions. Other skill sets at SimplyFun are Reading & Language Arts, Math & STEM and Social Sciences & Studies.
