I was asked if I wanted to check out Gravity Maze by ThinkFun. I love puzzles so I was happy to take a look. Opinions of the game are 100% my own.
Gravity Maze is a marble run with the challenge of a logic puzzle. Like other ThinkFun games there are 60 puzzles ranging from easy to expert. There is only one solution for each puzzle. The concept is simple. Start at point A and get your marble to point B. How you do it and what you have to work with is the challenge. There are five different types of towers that you can use to get your marble to the goal but you can only use those that the card tells you. Then it is up to you how to arrange the towers to get the marble through the maze. Here is a video that explains the game and shows it in action.
When I play these games I generally start at the first puzzle and go as far as I can. I stick with a puzzle until I complete it and don’t cheat. Eventually I move through all 60 cards. I love the challenges that these games have and switching up my way of thinking to solve the problems.
On one final note I am incorporating Gravity Maze into a Brain Teaser Team Building event that I am planning for work. Teh event will also feature previously reviewed games like Laser Maze and Turnstile.
