Anti-Virus is a fun and educational one-player game that grows with your child. The goal of the game is to get a "virus" off the board. As the manufacturer states, it's a "Bio-Logical Game! Put your immune system to work and get rid of the virus before it can multiply itself." But to do so, you have to move other game pieces out of the way. The challenge is that the pieces can only move in certain directions so the player must think carefully when deciding how to move each piece. There are a total of 60 challenges ranging from easy to hard (there are 5 different levels), thus, the game can be played by children (7 and older) and adults. This game is great for working on problem solving skills, logical reasoning, and attention. Our testers loved the challenge. And I found myself playing with it for hours after my kids went to bed. To top this off, the game comes with a bag that stores everything, making it portable for car rides and trips.
