That game sounds a lot like MindTrap, though MindTrap also throws in generic logic puzzles (the kind of stuff you see in Professor Layton), and has the players advance through a board toward a goal. Players get to roll to see how far they move if they answer the puzzle right.
I think it’s still in production; I still see it in stores all over the place.
I had Mindtrap when I was younger! My favorite card was the one where you had to figure out how to get a ping pong ball out of a narrow pipe sunk into some concrete, and the solution was “pee in the tube causing the ping pong ball to float to the top.”
