WordHoo is an educational card game about words, vocabulary, strategy and intelligence.
WordHoo is designed to strengthen the connection between Fluid Intelligence (ability to solve problems logically by identifying patterns and relationships in abstract elements) and Crystallized Intelligence (ability to quickly access information from long term memory, use skills, knowledge and experience to reason with words and/or numbers).
In addition, the game mechanics seamlessly work to enhance 3 key skills; Forward Thinking, Cognitive Adaptability and Structured Thinking.
Forward Thinking: Deciding each next move requires children to analyze cards in hand/current situation, think ahead & make decisions.
Cognitive Adaptability: During the game-play, children are continuously exposed to rapidly changing situations and are expected to absorb new stimulus at each turn, adapt and respond in the best possible way.
Structured Thinking: While playing, children essentially take disjoint pieces of information and try to piece them together to find solution to the problem at hand. Playing and winning the game requires putting a methodology to thinking process. For example;
- Do I have any prefixes or suffixes in hand?
- Do i have vowels to use the prefixes/suffixes?
- If I need letter 'M' to make a word, how many 'M' cards does this game has and what are the possibilities getting one?
- Which unwanted cards should I get rid of first?
- When an opponent is winning, should I play a word or an appropriate ZAP card to stop her from winning?
Gift your child WordHoo and see him/her grow. WordHoo is a thoughtful gift for kids, boys and girls.
