A brain teaser game

On Paper

For users who want to solve tasks on paper, gbrainy offers an export function. Navigating to Game | Export Games to PDF for Off-line Playing… opens a window where you can select which game types, as well as the number of games, to be exported (Figure 5). If you only have a monochrome printer, you can choose to skip games that use color. You also can specify the desired difficulty level of the tasks to be exported.

After selecting your options, specify the path and file name for the document to be exported in the Output File field and press Save. Your saved document will also contain the answers for the selected exercises on a separate sheet, making export useful for school and training scenarios.

Special Features

If you want to customize the game selection, go to Game | Custom Game. By default, all games are selected here. Checking the box to the right of the game category removes the task from the collection. In the preview to the right of the list, you can see the currently selected task in the main window, which makes the selection easier.

Once your selection is made, click the Start button to immediately start the defined game collection. Using the Game | New Game menu, you can also enable each of the four game categories individually, so that only questions from an individual category are used in a given session.

Conclusions

Gbrainy lets you practice logical thinking skills. It is equally suitable for students and adults. With the ability to adjust learning levels and select different game categories, you can easily adapt the brain teasers to meet your needs. With the PDF export function, you can print out questions, along with answers, for offline use, making gbrainy suitable for home schooling.
