Puzzle Review: Rush Hour, Gordian’s Knot, Journal 29, Criminal Mind Puzzles, BoxOne – Spoiler Free
Hello and welcome to Downtime Fun!
I’ve been wanting to write more puzzle review articles for a while, but I always get distracted by the new puzzles I’ve acquired and never get around to writing about them. However, I’m officially stuck on some of the puzzles now, so I’ve decided to take a break and write an article to review some of the puzzles I’ve been working on lately.
The first puzzle I’m going to review is Rush Hour, made by Think Fun. It’s a sliding block puzzle that’s quite well-known among parents. The puzzle pieces are colorful and shaped like cute cars, which easily captures the interest of younger children. The game is easy to set up and has a simple rule: move the vehicles out of the way to let the red car out of the board through a single hole on the right side. The moves are relatively restrictive, adding a level of difficulty. The puzzle contains 40 challenges of varying difficulty levels, making it suitable for both children and adults. Overall, it’s a great puzzle that introduces logic and STEM concepts while providing a lot of fun.
The Golden Snort Puzzle
Another puzzle I want to review is The Golden Snort Puzzle, also made by Think Fun. This puzzle is colorful and made of cheerful plastic. It looks like a 3D hashtag and may seem harmless, but don’t let that fool you. It’s actually one of the most difficult mass-produced puzzles out there. The goal is to disassemble the puzzle by moving the individual pieces in the X, Y, and Z axes only, without any rotational moves allowed. It’s a challenging puzzle that requires trial and error, along with patience and logic. While there are more difficult puzzles in the market, The Golden Snort Puzzle is a great starting point for anyone looking to delve into the world of complex puzzles.
Journal 29 and The Revelation
Next on my list is Journal 29 and its sequel, The Revelation. These are interactive book games that provide puzzles for readers to solve. Each puzzle requires the player to enter the answer into a website, and if correct, a key is provided for the next question. The puzzles in these books are challenging, with a mix of easy and extremely difficult ones. The second book expands on the storyline and adds new elements to keep the experience fresh. Although some puzzles may feel out of context at times, the book provides hints and answers on a resourceful forum. If you’re looking for something different than traditional paper-based brain teasers, I highly recommend giving these books a try.
The last puzzle I want to mention is Box One by Neil Patrick Harris. This puzzle was originally only available in the US but can now be shipped internationally. It’s highly regarded within the puzzle community and offers a clever and fun solving experience. The puzzle follows a sequential discovery format, requiring the player to progress step by step. The integration of different mechanics, both traditional and interactive, adds to the overall enjoyment. There’s also a captivating story behind the puzzle. Whether you enjoy novel ideas and creative designs or prefer challenging puzzles, Box One is worth trying out.
I hope this article helps you with your next puzzle purchase. If you have any experience with these puzzles, let me know in the comments below. Thank you for reading and happy puzzling!
