I love being able to find a good mind boggling game or puzzle that my family and friends can all enjoy. When given Perplexus to review I was very curious to check this awesome puzzle out! My curiosity got the best of me. I dont think that me waking up and deciding I was going to open the box and give Perplexus a try, first thing in the morning was such a good idea. I did this before coffee and my morning wake up shower. I got frustrated and put it down. Later on in the day, after my daughter got home from school she had invited some of her friends over. Well they had seen the Perplexus on the table and wanted to try it. So we all went into the living room and took turns. It was sad seeing that a bunch of 6 and 7 year olds were able to pick up on this game right away and were getting farther than I had that morning. When it was my turn, I thought to myself, "If these little kids can do this, then so can I". Not so easy. Perplexus really gets those gears in your brain going. It is all about hand eye coordination and skill, which I obviously lack! But I have been playing with this secretly when I am able to be alone so I can increase my skills. So when we have our next get together with friends I can bring Perplexus out and make it seem like I am a natural pro at this!!
There are obstacles of varying difficulty that must be navigated across in order to get the steel ball to the end. The experience offers hours of entertainment and fun as you work out the tricks that are needed to get between some of the more complicated positions.
Unlike traditional flat-surface mazes that are composed of one path, Perplexus houses various exhilarating tracks with 100 barriers and provides a three dimensional experience unlike any puzzle you have ever tried.
Players select which track they would like to attempt, and then must work with gravity and carefully shift, flip, and twist the sphere to guide the marble. Players can race each other or the clock. On top of being entertaining, Perplexus is also an educational toy, and assists in childrens development
The Perplexus is a great toy for children to exercise their motor and dexterity skills, as well as improve their hand-eye coordination. Its small size makes it easily portable and also no batteries are required. Although the puzzle does have a minimum recommended age of six years old - we also guarantee that adults will love the puzzle and spend ages trying to discover the secret to getting from position 1 to position 100.
