Who would have thought that video games can help in your child’s development? Well, they can as part of a ‘balanced diet’ of educational content. Irish game developer Fierce Fun has just released their digital board game Mindframe Arena – a ‘Smart and Safe’ game designed for a family-friendly environment.

While games like chess are great for the mind but to in the era of Fortnite and the likes, these games can be considered off putting. Well, Mindframe Arena have made a game that introduces children to intellectually stimulating activities such as board and strategy games. Based on classic board games like chess, Mindframe Arena requires skill and strategy to play – yet it is easy and fun to learn.

Mindframe combines quirky characters, spell casting and one-on-one challenges – all on a unique tactical game board. Journey to the secret centre of the arena by leading your faction of brave and brilliant Tecs. Each Tec comes with a powerful spell and a power bar for direct challenges. There are 6 Tec classes to collect including the ultra-rare Bionics and Primes.
