I wrote about the Rush Hour game before. It’s an awesome game with lots of logic and math going on.
Okay, not really. But kind of.
I start with the high tech game. Then I use the low tech version to see what the final solution must look like.
Here’s the start:
I notice that the yellow truck needs to get out of the way. So I see where it can go.
Turns out there’s only one place it can end up, but the lavender truck is in the way:
Now all that’s left is to scootch the pink car out of the way and we have the final solution:
Now it’s time to work through how to get all the bits to those final resting places.
This is where you see that you have to move some of the other cars and trucks. For instance, one of the first moves is to move the blue truck – which didn’t need moving at all in the cheater solution.
Third, work harder!
Celebrate your victory or try again to get it down to fewer moves.
That’s one of the challenges in the high tech version: it actually tracks your number of moves and lets you know if you could’ve done better.
If you stick with low tech Rush Hour, a victory is a victory!
Disclaimer: ThinkFun gave me this game a couple of years ago because I begged them. But I did pay full price for the app.
