This maze based game is packaged neatly and I was ready to play within a few minutes. There are several maze pieces of different heights and with different colored plastic pieces inside. The plastic pieces in these towers work to direct the small marbles in one direction or another depending on how they are placed. There are 3 metal marbles to use in the game play. There are 60 cards in the set, ranging from beginner levels to much more advanced puzzles as you progress. If you are really stumped, all of the cards have the solution on the back.
The Gravity Maze game is a single player logic game. To play you pick a puzzle card and it will show the starting point with a white dot, and the ending point with a red square. The red square represents the included, red piece that serves as the end terminal for the marble in each puzzle. The cards give suggested colors as hints for which maze pieces you will use to solve the puzzle, the rest is up to you. Each of the plastic maze pieces snap into place in the game board so they are easy to position and keep in position as you build the maze and trial it with the marble.
I really like that the cards have a large range of difficulty levels and how easy it is to get started.
I really can’t think of anything to dislike about this game. It is simple, straightforward and a fun.
This game is a little challenging in the logic department so the recommendation for kids 8 and older is appropriate for this one.
ThinkFun did not let me down with the Gravity Maze Game. I really enjoyed it and I look forward to playing some of the more challenging game cards. This is a great logic game for one and if you wanted to share you could always do it like a time trial competition. I can’t wait to see what ThinkFun has in store for me next.
