Just like the classic Rush Hour game, you shift blocking cars and trucks out of your way to clear a path to the exit.
The 40 leveled brainteaser challenges are a fun way to build problem solving skills. Rush Hour Jr. is ideal for younger ages but still plenty of fun for an adult brain!
- Traffic Grid
- 40 Challenges and Solutions (Easy to Super Hard)
- Ice Cream Truck
- 15 Blocking Vehicles
- Game-Go Bag
Object of the Game
You win this game when you can slide the white Ice Cream Truck out the exit on the traffic grid.
Choose a challenge card and place the cars, trucks, and buses on the grid to match the drawing on your card.
No matter what card you pick, the Ice Cream Truck will always be in the same row as the exit on the traffic grid.
It will be blocked by the other vehicles. Your job is to move all the cars, trucks, and buses out of the way.
You can move them forward and backward. When the exit is clear, your Ice Cream Truck can escape.
After you start to play the game, you can't take the vehicles off the traffic grid. And, just like real cars, you can't push them sideways. Pretend the grid is a real road.
End of the Game
When the Ice Cream Truck can slide out the exit on the traffic grid.
Sequential Reasoning: Pause, look carefully at the grid, and begin working backwards. You'll learn to observe problems and sequentially think through the steps to solving them before simply reacting.
Focus and Attention: The ability to quietly focus in on a problem and turn off all other surrounding distractions is a skill that takes practice. Start with one challenge a day to improve this skill!
Perseverance: Don't get frustrated if you can't solve it right away. Look at the traffic grid from all directions and try out different things. Having patience and determination takes practice but creates great discipline.
Confidence: The success you'll feel when that ice cream truck slides to freedom will boost confidence and make you crave even tougher challenges!
