What I love: I grew up in the ‘80s so I loved the Rubik’s Cube! This game, which is for ages 7 and up, combines the challenge of the Rubik’s Cube with the added pressure of an opponent. It’s visually interesting and the concept is simple. If you’re looking for a simple game to get your kids off their technology without breaking the bank, this game is a match.
What I’d change: It might be nice to see different versions of the game. For example, “make this stair pattern” or “match this 4 x 4 grid” (instead of a 3 x 3 grid, to make it more challenging). Also, the tiles can fall out so they’re easy to lose.
