The idea of levers and balance inspired Matt Buchanan to enter (and win!) the 2012 Marbles Game Design Contest with a game aptly named Rock Me Archimedes. Combining strategy, skill and a little bit of luck, the game consists of a wooden board that rocks like a teeter totter, a special die and 28 marbles. To win, just be the first player to oh-so-carefully get four marbles to your end of the board without reaching the tipping point, causing it to touch the table.
Brain Health Expert Says: "The parietal lobe is important for visual perception and decision making, and the frontal lobe is crucial for critical thinking and decision making. Both lobes are highly engaged in this game of balance and strategy."
