Perplexus Original Review and GIVEAWAY

Perplexus Original Review

I was recently given the chance to review the Perplexus Original maze!  As I'm sure you remember last year I was given the chance to review the Rookie.  So I was excited to have the chance to compare them!

What is a Perplexus Original? It is a ball with a complex maze that you have to work a smaller metal ball through. You must twist and turn and sometimes even completely turn it upside down to work your ball from the start to the end.  The path is numbered so you don't lose your way.  There are 100 barriers you have to work your way through.  The Original is just one of the Perplexus balls!  Each ball has a different maze and a different challenge you must conquer! 

Is there a difference between the Rookie and the Original?
Yes the Original is more difficult and the maze is bigger!  Also on the Original there are 3 different starting points!  That way if you fall off half way through you don't have to go all the way back to start :)!  I liked this feature, as someone who falls off the track a lot it was nice to be able to start closer to where I fell instead of going all the way back to the beginning.


My family really enjoyed the Perplexus Original!  It is a really fun game to play by yourself or even to play as a group.  My sister and I race to see who can finish it faster :).  I always win....
It can be played at home or on the go!  This is great for long car rides.  I recommended this game for all ages!
