Holiday Gift For Children and Adults
We all remember the classic Rubik’s Cube, the fun, frustrating and addictively awesome toy that first launched in 1980. Well for those of use that find the regular Rubik’s Cube more anger inducing than entertaining, there’s a new variation of the game that anyone can enjoy! Rubik’s Race is the fun new two-person game that takes the Rubik’s Cube to a whole new level.
The concept is simple. A cube filled with nine coloured squares called a Scrambler is shaken and then set down on the table. Opponents face off head-to-head and race to match the pattern of squares inside the Scrambler by sliding their own coloured squares around in the five-by-five grid in the same manner as a sliding square puzzle (often referred to as a 15-puzzle). The first one to complete the puzzle by matching the inner nine squares flips down the centre divider over their squares and yells, “I am the Rubik’s Race Champion!”
Okay, I made that last part up, though my husband and I have been using that phrase when we play! The game is fun, fast-paced and best of all, it’s appropriate for all different skill levels! The recommended age is 5+ so even my youngest son has been having some fun testing his skills, though he does need a little bit of help occasionally! If you so desire, you can even play by yourself and use a timer to try to beat your previous best times!
This game really is a brain twister, but fortunately, it’s easy to match people of similar skill levels to make it interesting for everyone. And it’s a great way to build concentration and logic skills! Rubik’s Race is available at major retailers throughout Canada. So check the game out for yourself and have fun as a family battling with Rubik’s Race!
