Mental Blocks

Mental Blocks

2021 Mensa Select Winner

Manufacturer:  Pandasaurus Games
Players: 4–6
Age Range: All Ages

Ready, set, Puzzle! Mental Blocks is the frenetic, nail biting 3D puzzle game you will never want to put up. Players must work together to solve 3d puzzles varying from entry level to hardcore head-scratchers before time runs out! Each player has their own secret perspective to the puzzle, but there's a catch! Every person has a restriction: some players can only touch certain blocks, some can only touch certain shapes, some cannot speak. This leads to delectable disarray as player scurry to solve each puzzle in real-time to graduate to the next puzzle - each ramping in difficulty as you proceed. Mental Blocks features two different modes (Family or Challenge) to fit everyone's tastes!
