Need a quick brain booster to get you through the afternoon? We offer a wide selection of games that can be played in 10 minutes or less! That's right, some of our games are super fast, meaning you can feel the effects of a brainy workout in a very short amount of time. Not every game has to be an afternoon-hogging event! Each game has been measured to real life Estimated Play Time, or EPT, to compare game length to everyday activities.

Tenzi1.) Tenzi: Each game of Tenzi is speedy, unique, and fun. A round consists of rolling 10 dice in order to get all of them to show the same number. That's it! Be the first to get all ten and shout "TENZI" and you win! EPT- The time it takes to brush your teeth.

Quarto2.) Quarto: Quarto is a wonderful exercise in visual processing and strategic planning. Be the first to get four items in a row that share one similar characteristic, but the twist is your opponent decides what piece you play! EPT- Television commercial break.


3.) Modus: Modus never gets old due to the variety of games that can be played on the board. All games are excitingly fast paced various gameplay options you'll never be bored. EPT-The time it takes to boil water.

Tic Tac Two4.) Tic Tac Two: Tic tac toe with a twist! Not only can you put your X's and O's anywhere on a bigger board, but the tic tac two grid is movable! Games are briskly paced and can change on a dime! EPT- Assembling the perfect sandwich.

Simon5.) Simon: Aaaahh, nothing beats a good old game of classic Simon. I'd be surprised if you could actually last 10 minutes in ONE game of Simon as the difficulty increases with each turn. It's a fantastic way to work our audio and visual processing centers and it's just like an oil change to your cerebral cortex to increase memory and attention span. EPT- According to skill-level, gameplay ranges from steeping tea to doing taxes. BrainCoach Derik
