SimplyFun’s strategy and spatial reasoning game Nite Lights has been chosen as one of 12 new games to earn a recommendation from American Mensa Mind Games®.
Nite Lights was praised by the Mensa judges with reviews that said, “Great concept and playable at all levels. Aesthetically pleasing with easy instructions,” and “fun multi-level strategy game. Very unique concept.”
“Our judges loved Nite Lights’ unique take on strategic pattern recognition, and nearly 80 percent said they would recommend the game to a friend,” said American Mensa CEO Trevor Mitchell. “Congratulations to the game designers and everyone on the SimplyFun team.”
Founded in 1990, Mensa’s Mind Games has become one of the most respected national games competitions. The 40-plus-hour board-game-judging marathon draws 300 Mensans and their guests from across the country where they vote on the year’s best new-to-market games.
This year, 71 games were selected for the Mensa Mind Games competition. Categories for evaluation included original and creative in concept, challenging to play, well designed, a good value for the price, easy to comprehend and, above all, fun.
“We are thrilled to learn that Nite Lights has been recommended by Mensa Mind Games as our team had a great time developing it,” said Stacy Longstreet, SimplyFun head of Product Development. “Our aim is to create fun, engaging and mind-developing games for kids and families. When we get recognized for this by Mensa Mind Games, we know we have achieved something special.”
