Ever flipping tiles keeps this puzzle a dynamic challenge. Each tile features a movement/action option on one or both sides. Once that action is used to make a move, the tile is flipped, putting that action out of play until a future move flips it back to reactivate it. And sometimes the flipped tile reveals a new potential movement/action on its reverse side. A great set of puzzles that enhance your mental flexibility to adapt your strategy as new circumstances arise.
WHAT THE KIDS SAY
I like that this is a one player game, and that sometimes you can flip the pieces and there's another action you can use on the other side.
Flip is a good game because sometimes you use one of the tiles and it, surprisingly, has another action on the other side, which adds a cool element to the game. It's easy to learn and fun and something good to do when you're bored.
WHAT ADULTS THINK
My kids (M10, F12) were not ready for such a challenging game. The beginner cards were good but the challenging cards where way over their heads. Wow there are a lot of rules to follow for this one. I can see why this is challenging and a brain teaser. you really need to concentrate on this game. When the kids (M10, F12) wanted to play a quick game, they never chose this one because it really made them think. I think it should be recommended for ages 12 and up
Well made and easy to use. My daughter 15, sat and just continued to work through the different puzzles for over an hour the first session without stopping. She really enjoyed the challenges. It builds your skills nicely and has lots of puzzles at each challenge level. Even if she got stuck on one puzzle, you could skip it and continue on the next and still solve some of the harder ones. Lots of cards to solve and builds progressively so you increase your skill level while being challenged at the same time. Just the right mix of easy and challenging. Enough different combination of moves so it wasn't boring.
Cool brain teaser. The first few challenges were fairly straightforward but as you start to incorporate tiles which have instructions on both sides, it starts to get a lot more challenging. As much of a challenge for the kids, as it is for the parents! It gets the kids to think in different ways. It was great that the first challenges get you to understand the basics of how the puzzles work and then it slowly advances to more challenging puzzles. We're looking forward to finishing off the puzzles, but they do get very difficult!
