Fun and Challenging Perplexus Marble Maze Mind Puzzle Games

Perplexus Marble Maze Puzzles are fun! They're addicting! They're thrilling!! Perplexus brain teasers are challenging to master, yet easy to understand!

These puzzles are entertaining brain teasers for the whole family. The easiest Perplexus puzzle is the Perplexus Rookie. It's for kids 6 to 10. The Perplexus Original is more challenging, and the Perplexus Epic is very challenging! (There's a new Perplexus Twist out this year, but I've not yet had the opportunity to play with it. Update: We received the Perplexus Twist for Christmas yesterday! I'll share my review of it soon!!)

I don't know who I'm trying to kid! Even the Perplexus Original is on FIRE challenging! And I love playing with it!!!

My family owns both the Perplexus Original and the Perplexus Epic and love them both! In fact, we've had so much fun with them over the last year, this year we're hoping Santa will bring us the new Perplexus Twist! And believe me, the adults have just as much fun with these brain teasers as the kids do!!!!

Yes, my brother, my college aged daughter and her boyfriend, my husband, my teenage son, and I have spent hours and hours playing with both the Perplexus Original and the Perplexus Epic! It became a competition; Who could beat the Perplexus first? Well, my teenage son won. He's mastered the Perplexus Original! Now the rest of us are trying to catch up!!!

Perplexus brain teaser maze puzzles are not something you'll master in one sitting and then be tired of. You'll likely spend weeks...months...maybe even a year or two... trying to complete these challenging Perplexus Marble-Maze Mind-Puzzle Games! A brand new way to challenge your brain, these Perplexus Marble Maze Mind Puzzles are hard for even the most seasoned puzzle veteran. Give your kids, tweens, teens, even your husband, wife, parents, or yourself, the brain teaser gift that will boggle their mind while it develops it!

My Family's Experience With the Perplexus

My family received both the Perplexus Original as well as the Perplexus Epic for Christmas last year. Everyone in the family absolutely loves the Perplexus!!! My son has mastered the Original, and is now on to working on the Epic. The rest of us are at varying stages on the Perplexus Original.

It's a 3D maze in which you must shift, flip, and twist a transparent sphere in order to maneuver the small marble inside it along tracks and around challenging barriers!

Race your friends, the clock, and even yourself as you try to master the movements of the marble! So how do you play? Just flip, twist, and spin the Perplexus Original Maze Puzzle to move the marble along the tracks through the maze! Just when you get used to one track in the maze, you come to a barrier, requiring you to use your spatial and cognitive reasoning skills to keep the marble running! The Perplexus Original Maze Puzzle has 3 different starting points, and includes a tightrope, a swing arm, and a super spiral! There are 100 barriers to conquer along the way! Some are fairly easy while others are quite challenging!

Ages: Six years and up. Yes, adults too!!The Perplexus Marble Maze puzzle is NOT too easy for adults! Believe me; this puzzle is every bit as challenging for adults as it is for youth! The adults at our house love it!

How Does The Perplexus 3D Marble Maze Puzzle Work? - Watch the video below and find out!

The video below explains how the Perplexus 3D Marble Maze Puzzle works better than I can! The Perplexus is a large clear ball with a variety of tracks, twists, barriers, and challenges inside. Your task is to move the ball along the tracks, changing from one track to another by twisting and turning the Perplexus every which way! Along the track are numbers. Go through each number in turn! It's like leveling up on a 3D video game!

Have you made it to 100 yet on the Original Perplexus?

Have you mastered the Perplexus Original yet?

You've mastered the Original Perplexus Marble Game? But can you beat the new Perplexus Epic! Carefully navigate the steel marble through 125 barriers of varying difficulty. Can you defy gravity and beat this challenging 3D Marble Maze Puzzle? It's not as easy as it sounds! Perplexus Epic will bring you hours upon hours of challenging fun!

The Perplexus Epic is more challenging than either the Original or the Rookie.

Perplexus Epic

Perplexus Twist! - New!

Perplexus Twist is similar to the other perplexus brain teasers, but with a twist! Literally! The two halves of the Perplexus Twist can twist!.

To play, move the sphere in your hands to roll the marble around. You want to maneuver the ball from one of the three starting points, along the tracks, past the challenges and obstacles, to the ending point. You can twist the two sides of the sphere to realign the tracks and create new paths when you run into obstacles. You are in control of the way the tracks are aligned! If you don't like the path you're on, change it!

About The Perplexus Twist!

This Perplexus Rookie Brain Teaser Puzzle is a little easier than the Perplexus Epic and the Original Perplexus Maze Game, ...well, maybe. It's for kids 6 - 10 years old. Yet, like all Perplexus 3D Marble Maze Puzzles, although it's simple to play, it's challenging to complete! The Perplexus Rookie includes 75 barriers to conquer!

      I haven't tried this before. But I have tried the Rubiks 360, which I think should be easier since this one seems a lot more complex.
