Is it me or is Easter REALLY close to Mother’s Day this year? And because they’re so close you really can’t get your mother flowers and candy since the Easter Bunny delivered those two weeks ago. So what are you going to do?! Sounds like the perfect time to give Think Fun’s Chocolate Fix!
Chocolate Fix has been out for a little while, but the folks at Think Fun just issued all new puzzles so it seems like a good time to do this review. (Side note: you can tell the new ones because they have the blue chocolates, not the pink ones) The game is well loved by many because it’s so easy to jump right into a challenge when you’ve got some spare minutes. The challenges are bound in a cute little spiral notebook and they give you hints on where to put the chocolates so the right color and shape end up in the correct position. Sometimes the hint will say what color needs to go in a particular spot, sometimes it only gives you the shape. Other hints may tell you what colors or shapes go near each other. You can see an example of what this looks like in the pic at the right. It may look a wee bit complicated but you will pick it up really quickly. For example – look at #5; this means that you will need to have a pink, dark chocolate and light chocolate in one of the three rows in that order. And #7 tells you that in the upper right hand corner it will DEFINITELY be a triangular dark chocolate. So from #7 you now know that the row shown in #5 is NOT the top row. Get it? You will.
Like all Think Fun puzzles, Chocolate Fix comes with challenges that range from “a monkey-can-do-it” easy to my “brain’s-really-flexing” hard. And it all fits neatly into a little nylon bag for easy travel and storage. It’s cute, it’s sweet and Mom will thank you for not breaking her diet!
