Gravity Maze Game






My family loves playing new games. We prefer games that you have to actually put some thought and effort into when playing. We've played Thinkfun games before and knew that this new game would be just as fun as the others were. 


Company's Product Description
Ages 8 to adult, single player
 MSRP: $29.99
60 challenges ranging from beginner to expert
Builds special reasoning and planning skills


In this gravity-powered logic maze, you’ll arrange colorful, translucent towers to whisk your marble from starting point to target. Just like best-selling Laser Maze, you’ll rely on your visual perception and reasoning skills to find the single solution to 60 different challenges. The towers can be arranged in many visually stimulating structures offering lots of creative building time, but only one design will successfully carry your marble directly in your target.



My Thoughts

You are given a marble (it comes with 3 in case one gets lost), a game grid, 60 challenge cards, 9 tower pieces, and 1 target piece. 


This game is so cool. Why? Because you seriously have to use that brain of yours. It's a game of logic and you actually have to visualize and think about how to position each little box or stack of boxes. There's no guessing or luck. You have to work each level out with your reasoning skills.


There are several different ways to position them, so yes it can be quite a challenge!
It takes a bit of time, but it's a wonderful way to keep busy and to keep your brain active and alert.


The challenge cards range from beginner to expert. 60 challenges will keep you playing for a days! My son did most of the beginner ones on his own and we worked together on the other two levels. So fun!


Although the game says 8 and up, both my son who is 6 and my niece who is 6 were able to figure out some of the challenges and they absolutely love the game. 
As with all Thinkfun Games, this is not your usual board games. It can also be played solo or with multiple players taking turns. 

Please do keep in mind that this game does come with 3 small marbles so, definitely not something to leave laying around if you have really young children.
