Hex Maze comes from Xia Pei Ming. It’s not a maze. There’s nothing maze-y about it! I suspect that the author used ‘maze’ as a synonym for puzzle.
Rearrange the tiles so that each one has the correct number of tiles surrounding it. For example, do you see the yellow 2? It’s good because it’s next to 2 tiles. Red means that too many tiles are touching it. Green – not enough tiles.
We’ve seen this type of puzzle many times before with a rectangular grid. So it’s nice to see this. Also, the graphics are good.
In terms of ‘puzzle [Read More...]
In the video is the world record holder Feliks Zemdegs and his time of 5.882 seconds on the Rubik’s 3x3x3. That is quite an impressive time. I’m sure he must be able to slow down time to accomplish this. My hands don’t even move that fast, let alone my brain thinking that fast.
You can purchase a 3x3x3 rotational puzzle at Puzzle Master.

Meffert’s Pyraminx doesn’t need any introductions when it comes to successful Twisty Puzzles. Not everyone knows this, but the Pyraminx was actually the first ever Twisty puzzle to be invented, back in 1970, four years before the Rubik’s Cube. Over 40 years later, the puzzle is still going strong as the second best-selling puzzle in the world. I guess people still prefer cubes over pyramids…
With all this popularity, it’s not a surprise knowing that there are too many Pyraminx versions and variations that cannot simply be count by the fingers of your hands. My latest acquisition is [Read More...]
Penguin Plunge: Stuck in Antarctica is exactly like Lunar Lockout from ThinkFun.
ThinkFun has been getting ripped off too many times. Too often, somebody comes out with a version of Rush Hour.
This is the second ripoff of Lunar Lockout.
Nob Yoshigahara was the creative force behind Lunar Lockout. I recall sitting on the side during an International Puzzle Party in Tokyo and he was performing a magic trick. He told me that it was ‘so simple’. But I don’t think anybody could figure it out. He was a character.
The Big Book of Brain Games is sure to become one of the great puzzle books. I have been interested in puzzles for many years and have a collection of over 350 “puzzle books” I have no hesitation in ranking this book right up there with “Cyclopedia of Puzzles” by Sam Loyd, “The Moscow Puzzles” by Boris Kordemsky” and “536 Puzzles & Curious Problems” by H.E.Dudeney. Each in it’s own way; Loyd’s was an innovation and a classic in it’s time, Dudeney’s and Kordemsky’s were very traditional with great variety. Moscovich gives [Read More...]
