The RUBIK’s Race® is a blast from the past and promises hours of fun! The fastest game in town, RUBIK’s Race is a re-introduction of the original ‘80s game inspired by the world’s most popular, yet torturous, hand-held puzzle!
Designed by reclusive Hungarian sculptor, engineer and architect, Professor Erno Rubik, inventor of the original RUBIK’s Cube®, RUBIK’s Race is the ultimate face-to-face game that challenges players to get their brain and fingers racing and go head-to-head with their opponent to match the pattern of nine colored squares.
Here’s how it works: Shift It. Slide It. Solve it!
The RUBIK’s Race includes a Scrambler, a device that contains 9 coloured cubes, and a Game Base. The Base allows two players to face one another, separated by a hinged vertical “window,” and provides each player with a 5×5 slide puzzle of 24 tiles comprising of the six iconic cube face colours — white, yellow, orange, red, green and blue.
At the beginning of each round, the Scrambler is shaken to set the target pattern. The goal for each player is to frantically shift and slide their tiles around and try to be the first to make the 3×3 centre of their puzzle match the target pattern of the RUBIK’s Cube Scrambler.
RUBIK’s Race is suitable for children ages 5 and up and requires no electricity or batteries – it’s eco-friendly and easy to use!
This type of game is not a typical game that I enjoy. Even though I don’t enjoy these types of games I think that RUBIK’s Race® is quite a fun game for people that enjoy solving problems and puzzles. One thing that I didn’t like was the scrambler cubes were not the same colors as the squares on the board. On the individual boards the colors are bright and the scrambler cubes are dull making it difficult to tell red and orange apart. I think it would have been better if the cubes in the scrambler were brighter and resembled the squares on the board.
This game, however, is right up my husbands alley.
The words my husband used to describe this game are:
Interesting take on an old classic
Looks like he will have to find someone else to play it with him.
