In this game, chocolate isn’t just chocolate.

Chocolate Fix (ThinkFun), $16.99, ages 8 and up. In this game, chocolate isn’t just chocolate. It’s a way to practice abstract thought, reasoning, and other intellectual skills. Players follow clues from a puzzle book that challenge their logical deduction skills while they manipulate the pieces of chocolate to satisfy the puzzle--just don’t eat them. Says Parents’ Choice: “Beginner games provide a quick road to a satisfying solution, but advanced games require that special flash of insight that comes from mulling the clues over and over until a clear line of thought breaks through. Too many kids go through life without being asked to think clearly.”
