Awards. Professor Noggin is used by many homeschoolers to help children have fun while learning important subjects. The card game has won many major awards, receiving honors from the likes of the Parent’s Choice Foundation, the National Association for Gifted Children and Scholastic Instructor Magazine, Teachers’ Choice Award for the Family and many more!
How to play. Other than having a great time, while learning, the goal of the game is to win the most cards! Before the game starts, players will determine if they are playing from the easy or hard questions, identified as student and scholar respectively. Players use the three-sided die to determine which question will be read. If a 2 is rolled, then the player has to answer question #2 from either the student or scholar category. If it’s answered correctly, the player keeps the card. If it’s not answered correctly, then the card goes back to the bottom of the pile. The game is over when all of the cards have been won. The player with the most cards is the winner. An extra fun factor – Noggin’s Choice! If you get a Noggin’s Choice on your turn, then you get to take a card from another player.
Each card game includes 30 topic cards, one three-sided die and instructions. The front of the cards feature amazing photography based on the topic of the card, while the back of the cards have the questions and answers. There are 3 easy questions and 3 hard questions on each card, so beginners and more advanced players can enjoy the game together. Players will enjoy a total of 180 choices from true/false to fill in the blank and multiple choice – but be careful of the questions with a brain icon – those are extra hard!
