Perplexus

Did you know Canada..  I listed this one under kids in our Holiday Gift Guide, but these are really for the whole family.  Perplexus is the funniest puzzle ever!

Designed by a 3-D design teacher, Michael McGinnis, I've seen many comments on line from folks saying this man must have been an evil genius to get us so addicted to his amazing puzzles. ;-)  The original concept was actually done in the late 1970's as a project for an art class, and look where it ended up!



We were so excited to receive the Perplexus Original from PlaSmart.  This has been a huge hit in our house, my 5 year old mastered it before my hubby..haha.. I still can't get past the first level.  Grampa spent so much time figuring it out we had to go buy him his own.  We got him the Epic one though.  There's actually FOUR versions of Perplexus to choose from!



The best way to describe it would be to say that it's easy to play - 5 year olds to 40 year olds and beyond have been enjoying it in this house, but it's challenging to complete, which is what gets ya addicted.  You pick one of three tracks to start on and move your marble along the track through the maze.  You will be flipping, turning and shimming your way through to the end of the maze.  Challenge your best time or friends, it's also a challenge to play while one of the kiddos is trying to steal it back from you..haha..



This would be a REALLY fun one for under the tree this year as it will have the whole family trying to puzzle it out during the Holiday break!

Stay up to date with the latest puzzles from Perplexus on Twitter and Facebook!  Do you have one?  Are you as addicted as we are? :-)  So much fun!!
