Our favorite contests were memory games, where you thad to remember the location of images hidden in a grid, and checkers, which involved some strategy and planning.
Beebright Edu, a developer of educational software, have come up with a way to turn checkers into a memory game.
Royal Checkers starts with a small board or perhaps nine squares and with game pieces that are hidden. Sounds easy enough, but there’s one more element - the board rotates between moves. That checker you thought was in the upper right corner may move to the lower left square.
The game challenges a player’s spatial recognition capability while also testing their memory and strategic thinking. It includes a global scoreboard where they can track and compare their performance.
Royal Checkers is available as a free download for iOS devices in the iTunes App Store and for Androids in the Google Play Store. To see the game in action, check out the video below.
