Click here play ‘Cover the Spot’ Puzzle Game
When I was about 9 years old, neighborhood buddies Jason, Adam and I excitedly rode our bikes early one sunny Saturday morning to the carnival that just opened less than a mile away at the local community college grounds.
The amusement rides weren’t running yet, so we wandered over to the booths to play some of the ‘test your skill’ games. To this day, I’ll never forget the chain-smoking, weathered man who gave us dozens of free tries on this frustratingly simple brain game called ‘Cover the Spot”.
It cost $1 per attempt, and the older smiling man showed us repeatedly how “easy” it is to drop the zinc discs down to cover the big red circle. No matter how hard we tried, however, there’d always be a small area of red showing!
In retrospect, it was hardly coincidence that the prizes for winning this puzzle/mind game were bigger than any other booth at the carnival that day. Enticingly easy enough for a kid to jump right in and start playing, hard enough that even the smartest of adults will be left scratching their heads.
So here it is, “Cover the Spot”, re-created for the smartkit site. The game has a “high score list” and keeps track of the 10 quickest puzzle solvers. Hope you guys like it.
