Brynk is a game of balance, where you basically use the top of the game container, rested on a rolling holder, as a place to add pieces. You add a piece at a time to make the construct bigger / taller. This might cause the base to tilt or slide. If your piece knocks over the tower, you lose.
The game includes three types of pieces, and fourteen of each, meaning you have 42 total pieces. The three types of pieces are a yellow triangle, orange square, and blue pentagon. Each type weighs a different amount, so you have a delicate game of balance, as the tower construct gets bigger.
The game sounds really easy to explain and play, and it actually is. You will however get nowhere near the 40+ pieces available on the tower. I challenged my nine-year old to have a 25 tile tower. I had to lower it to 20 as the most he could get was just 17. And, my best has only been 16. Also, while the game is meant for two or more players, it can easily be played with just one, seeing how many notched tiles they can connect.
In addition to Brynk, we got to play with some of Winning Moves Games other games, too: Scrabble to Go, Pass the Pigs: Big Pigs, and the small white box card game of BrainSpin. None of them had the enjoyment of Brynk, which also teaches key STEM principles, too.
While most people are familiar with Scrabble, the game we enjoyed second most would be Brainspin. The cards here are like ink blots, where you have to identify what you see in the pictures. And, you have to do a good job convincing somebody what you really see if what you see is a bit of a stretch.
