Brynk is designed for kids ages 7 and up; it won’t matter how old you are because I can bet you will get a thrill out of it and maybe a little stressed. There can 2 or more players for Brynk, we are a family of four so we like to do 2 each round then the winners of those face off each other. Yes, even Lucas gets to play….he isn’t the best but he has just as much fun as the rest of us!
The contents of this game include the following
-Game unit (doubles as storage container)
-Balancing game base/cap
-42 plastic Brynk playing pieces
The set up for this game is really easy, the casing (game unit) doubles as a storage container and type of game board. To use all you do it empty out it’s contents and then flip it over then place the tri-slider in the center then set the balancing base (the lid when not in use) on top and you are ready to go. Once you are all set up each player picks from the playing pieces provided; yellow (neon green) triangle, blue pentagon and orange square. All of the shapes have an opening on all of there points. After each players chooses their shape is when the game really starts, players will have to hook their shapes onto the Brynk game base. With more and more pieces being added you will notice that it will constantly move, this is all thanks to the tri slider underneath. If one shape falls then the person who played last is out, however is every piece falls then the game is over and you can start from scratch again.
I will say that this game is fun but is really frustrating, out of all the games we have this one probably gets to me the most. Also this is a game of steady hands and luck, lots and lots of luck, at least in my opinion. Even though this is for children 7 and up we allow Lucas to “play”, he doesn’t quite understand it but he has fun so that’s all that matters. If you let younger children play like I do then you just gotta make sure to keep an eye on them for those just in case reasons. Even though this game can be quite frustrating it does teach kids and adults to have patience and strategy, sometimes the strategy in your mind doesn’t always work when it comes to actually putting it into motion. I’m big supporter of games that double up as storage and no I’m not just talking about regular board games in a box. I can remember getting the kids some game and it had all these pieces but nowhere to put them, I would find them everywhere until on day I got sick of cleaning it up and threw it all out. Oh yes it was one of those days. With Brynk I know that once we are done playing all the pieces can be thrown inside the game base/container and put away until next time. Nothing makes a Mom happier then when items get put back where they belong.
