Strategy games are a wonderful educational tool to help your children develop their brain power! They help build your child's thinking and logic skills which are a necessary foundation for higher math and science.

Strategy games involve problem solving. They develop your child's spatial thinking skills by helping a player to form an image in his mind before placing his piece on the board. Chess is a perfect example of a strategy game.

When using strategy a player must develop a sequence of actions and examine the consequences of an action before his turn. This helps to promote forward thinking skills and comprehension.
