Jungle Hide and Seek 2

Jungle Hide and Seek is a jungle-themed single player puzzle game with the goal of hiding some of the jungle animals and leaving others visible. Included with the game is a double-sided game board that can be used as a storage case, 4 double-sided puzzle pieces, and a booklet with 80 challenges plus their solutions. The object of the game is to meet the requirements of each challenge by placing the puzzle pieces in a way that leaves only a certain animal exposed, while “hiding” the rest. The game board features a “day” side with a 4-grid game and a “night” side with more difficult challenges in one big grid. Gameplay promotes engineering thinking by providing the user with a problem, which requires them to use critical and creative thinking, as well as spatial reasoning and logic to find the correct solution. As children move on to new puzzles, the difficulty increases, allowing for progressive learning and mastery as they go forward. Children will enjoy the challenge of deciding the best way to hide the pandas, tigers, and elephants from view!
