|A visual perceptual and problem solving puzzle with 120 challenges.|
In the box: Plastic playing board/carrying case, puzzle booklet with 120 challenges, 8 plastic pieces
A portable game that will challenge the visual perceptual and problem solving skills of the brightest. It measurers roughly 5 1/2" x 3 1/2" and could fit in a purse or pocket. The object of the game is to place the 8 pieces on the board with no hangover. The pieces are made of rings and the rings for each color are molded together so that they take up two tiers. Sounds simple enough, but these types of puzzles are so not me. I hate to admit it, but I took one piece out of the case and it took me 10 minutes to put it back in. For a minute I thought I would have to go get a Ziplock bag. And that was with the other seven pieces already in place! I used to have a theory that if I couldn't do something I didn't give it to another person to do. I assumed if it was frustrating for me it would be frustrating for them. Then I realized that my weaknesses could turn into their strengths, so I stopped that. There are 120 puzzles in this booklet and they advance in difficulty. The puzzles start by showing seven of the eight pieces in place. Follow the guide to put the seven in the case and you figure out where the eighth one goes. The puzzles go from showing seven pieces to showing only two on the most difficult challenges. All solutions are pictured in the back of the book. A natural opportunity to practice in-hand manipulation as you turn each piece to try this position and that.
