Recently, I received the Houdini game from Thinkfun, I was super excited to see how this game is played. The name itself is very intriguing. :)
World's First 40-Challenge Escape Puzzle
So you think you’re Houdini? Well, let’s see what you’ve got! Try your hand at these 40 disentanglement puzzles. Just secure Houdini using the ropes, lock and rings and work your magic to set him free without undoing the clasps! Sound easy? Well, let’s just say we won’t ask you to tie yourself up quite yet!
• Ages 8 to adult
• 40 Challenges
• 2 Ropes
• Lock & 2 Rings
• Houdini Body & Legs
• Trap Cage
• Travel Bag
The game is very fun and nice to play because there are 40 challenges included in the game. Each flip of the card makes the challenge a bit more harder than the previous one. The stages range from beginner to expert. After watching the how-to-play video from Thinkfun, I learned a bit of few rules not stated on the box. One is I can slip Houdini's feet in between the loops of the trap cage if it's possible to remove the rope through Houdini's legs. Second, I can slip the rope through the loops of the trap cage too.
This is such a fun, single player game which is perfect to do when I need to unwind and sharpen my mind. :)
