The fastest growing brain-exercising puzzle in the world will soon take to the skies according to DTI which, with its parent company Global Eagle Entertainment, has signed a multi-year agreement with speciality toy and puzzle company Nextoy, to license the popular KenKen logic and math puzzle game to airlines.
KenKen was originally developed in 2004 by a Japanese mathematics professor to help his students improve logic, critical thinking, math abilities and problem-solving skills. The puzzle became popular with both adults and children, and in 2008, Nextoy launched KenKen in the USA. Today KenKen is a daily feature in over 150 national and international newspapers, with millions of puzzles solved each month in print, online, and via apps.
KenKen will be available for both wireless and seatback IFE systems as part of DTI’s catalogue of games. With grid sizes ranging from 3X3 to 9X9 and dozens of difficulty levels, passengers will be able to pit their wits against challenging puzzles and exercise their minds throughout their flights.
