The Perplexus ball is wrapped in a thick/cardboard paper packaging. Once this is broken and removed you are ready to play. No setup and no fuss.
Perplexus is a game of patience and skill. The shape is round and the 99 obstacles inside are a maze of colors and ramps. They are number so you can see there really are 99 paths for that little metal ball to take. The obstacles follow every direction you can imagine so the sphere design comes in handy as you maneuver the whole unity to direct the marble through the maze.
I really like that each of the obstacles are numbered so show there really are 99 paths to take.
I don’t really dislike anything about this toy but the whole unit is a bit larger in size than is comfortable to hold on to. It makes maneuvering it just a little more awkward than I would prefer.
This toy is recommended for players 6 and older.
Aside from my issues with the toy being a little on the large side, I actually really like this toy. The Perplexus Original is a great travel game that will have you scratching your head and trying your patience to get the marble through all 99 obstacles!
