Brighter Minds Software for You and Your Family


Diner Dash & Diner Dash 2

Amanda (age 9) has been really enjoying this game.

In Diner Dash, the player must seat customers, take orders, and clear dishes in the diner.

Diner Dash 2 features a different restaurant, and gives the players upgrades based on appearance.

One thing that I really like about this game is that it doesn’t take up a huge amount of disk space or processing memory. I like the kids to use our old Windows 2000 desktop to play computer games (which is somewhat corrupted). Many new games with all their awesome graphics either won’t run on Windows 2000, or run too slowly due to a lack of space. Amanda has played both of these on that computer with no frustrations.


Wedding Dash

According to my game-tester, this is completely different than Diner Dash, and even features a new character (not Flo from Diner Dash). The planner must meet the expectations of the bride and groom in catering the wedding. Amanda (age 9) enjoys the simplicity of Diner Dash the most, but she advised that I would probably enjoy Diner Dash 2 or Wedding Dash more.

This one also loaded on our old computer with no problems.


Brainiversity

This truly is a game for the whole family. Amanda (age 9) plays without complaining that some math facts are sneaking their way into her summer. Kyle (age 4) watches us play and giggles at the twittering sound that the lightbulb mascot guy makes as the text is going across the screen.

There are four categories: language, memory, math and analysis. Your quizzes are customized based on the age that you enter when you sign up. The game can track up to 6 users on one computer

The idea is that by doing some brain workouts, you can improve your mental function. I can’t testify as to whether or not that works, but if it does, I’m all for it. It is fun, and the competitive side of me loves trying to improve my score and looking back on past results, as well as comparing my brain’s function to others in the family.


Miss Management


I have meant to try this out, but I haven’t had the time yet. Before I got obsessed with interested in blogging, I enjoyed playing adventure or role-playing games on the computer or gaming system. I would think that with the popularity of sit-coms such as “Office Space,” this office-based simulation game would appeal to many. It is rated “Teen” for some vulgar humor, so I have not let Amanda play this one. I’m looking forward to giving it a spin myself.

Five of you (U.S. shipping addresses only) can win one of each of these games from Brighter Minds Media worth close to $100. Leave a comment here if you would like to win, and we’ll post the winners on August 1.

    All of these sound great. My daughters are huge fans of Diner Dash…okay, I’ll admit it, they got me hooked to, but we’ve only played it online. I’d be the coolest mom ever if I won a copy of it for them!

  2. says

    We have Diner Dash and the kids and I like to compete to see who can do the best at waiting tables. I would love to try some of their other products.

  3. says

    My kids are constantly asking when we can get some new computer games. They would go absolutely crazy with FIVE new games and these look like great fun!

  4. Tracey Byram says

    Liz would love some new games. My fave is Diner Dash. I missed my calling when I didn’t become a waitress.

  5. says

    Wow-these look like loads of fun! I have my own 9yo that is always surrounded by her brothers’ “guy” stuff, so she’d have a blast! Thanks for a great contest!!

  6. says

    I’ve played Diner Dash 1 & 2 & loved them, so I know I would love the Wedding Dash one, as well. Brainiversity sounds like a lot of fun. My 6 yr old loves math, so this would be a great learning tool. I’m a former simaholic, lol… so I think Miss Management would be fun! Thanks for a great giveaway!

  7. Tonia Rowe says

    These games look so fun! I have heard about them, but never had the chance to have my family try them.

  8. AmandaK says

    My kids need these games! They’re tired of their Playstation… so these just might be even more entertaining!

  9. Kaelan says

    I’ve tried both Wedding and Diner Dash online, they are both fun and the full versions have even more features!

  10. says

    I love Diner Dash! The online version is limited, and I haven’t been able to justify the purchase for a game for me when I could spend that $ on more important things! LOL! I would love to win this, and the other games look great too, so that would be awesome!

  11. says

    These games sound like a blast. I’ve played Diner Dash and Wedding Dash online, and found I was able to waste a lot of time playing them! :) I’d love to win a copy of any of those games!

    I am so thrilled about this giveaway. I love playing games like Diner Dash.. I get to escape for a bit! I have only managed to play the free trials, so once I’m smoking the game, my free 60 minutes ends. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to be considered to win your giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity!

  19. Pamela Callahan says

    I know I love to play Diner Dash online. I would love to try the full version. The others games are right up my alley as well….

  24. sabb266 says

    I am so addicted to the Time Management games! Love Diner Dash and play it online whenever I can I am sure the rest as fun, it would be nice to own them

  25. Vicky H. says

    My sister absolutely LOVES/obsesses over Diner Dash type of games. These would all go straight to her. LoL.

  26. Sandy F. says

    I have played the “free” versions of Diner Dash and others and love love love them! My family would really enjoy this…thanks :O)

  27. Adriana BH says

    I love the Dinner Dash games and the Wedding Dash, I have not had a chance to try the other ones. Thank you !

  28. Kasey P says

    We’ve played the demo of a Diner Dash and Wedding Dash and they were a lot of fun. These are some fun games!

  29. Justin F. says

    The games look like so much fun! good times to be had for everyone in our family. please count us in for this great giveaway. thanks!

  30. barbara wright says

    Wow – these games all sound great – the only one I’ve heard of is Diner Dash, and I love that!

  31. says

    I would LOVE to win these! I’m like you as far as letting the kids play on the older and somewhat corrupted computer, so knowing that these would run on it is a definite plus! Thanks so much!

  32. Stacy F. says

    I love Diner Dash! It’s perfect to kill spare time…who am I kidding…I don’t have any spare time since I had a baby!! LOL!

  33. says

    My kids have Diner Dash which we purchased and downloaded off the net and they LOVE! LOVE! LOVE it. So I’m sure they would totally love Diner Dash II.

    I think Brainiversity would be perfect for our family – especially me! My brain is mush sometimes and I NEED to engage my brain in a little bit more mentail activity then it normally gets. As a mom/homemaker/wife I often find myself in “Robot Mode” and a whole day goes by before I know it and I haven’t challenged my brain one bit. I NEED to do something to challenge it. I hear that keeping your brain active helps fend off dementia and other ailments of old age. I certainly don’t want that to happen.

    All the games look GREAT, fun and interesting and I’m sure my entire family would put them all to good use (and I can see the kids fighting over who gets to play them first too…LOL!!!).

    Thanks for an AWESOME giveaway!

  34. Melissa says

    I’m so relieved that others like Diner Dash also… I was worried I was the only one that got excited to see this giveaway!

  35. Kaycee Widen says

    My daughter and I absolutely love these games. I would love to see her eyes light up if I brought these home to her!

  36. Alice Hansen says

    Wow I’ve never heard of any of these games and they all sound super fun. Thanks for the giveaway!

  37. Donna K. says

    My family would totally enjoy these games…we have played the Diner Dash before and would love to try the others too. thanks!

  38. Clarissa says

    I love to play games online and have played some of these they are sooo fun. Being home can get pretty boring so to have something to play would be nice.

  39. Suzie G says

    My sister’s computer doesn’t have an online connection right now and needs games like this to keep her occupied! Count me in. =-)

  40. Melanie Billings says

    Good grief, I think I play more time-management games than my kids do. I’m addicted! We enjoy all the Diner Dash incarnations and I’d love to try the new ones.

  41. Heather B says

    i love all of these games! played the trial versions of them all as many times as I possibly could!

    Oh these look like ALOT of fun!!! I keep wanting to play some of those games but I can never justify spending the money. If I win them though then I can play all I want right? ;)

  52. ELSIE says

    I love these type of games. I actually have experienced at least two of them, by downloading an hour of playing time. It was fun. Thanks for this opportunity!
