Icosuku Jr. is the slightly easier version of the
award winning Icosuku. Icosuku Jr. is a mathematical reasoning
game for early elementary age students. It combines principles
of mathematical games like Sudoku and magic squares with moveable
tiles. The player removes all the triangle tiles with dots on the
corners, some of which are filled in, and the number pegs from
the geometric ball base. Then all the number pegs are randomly
inserted into the base. Each number will have a possibility of
five corners facing the number. The player needs to make sure that
there are no more colored dots than the specified number by snapping
the triangular pieces into the base.
Icosuku Jr. requires a child to think critically about which triangles
to place where, so all the triangles and numbers match. Although
only the numbers 1-4 are presented, it is challenging enough to
make the child think without being overly difficult and discouraging.
This is a great game for the car because every game is different
and it travels easily. It is also great for beginning addition
and subtraction practice in a fun way. I love this game.
