Win an Oginov Tumbler – the puzzle that lasts forever
The new Oginov Tumbler puzzle is great fun for players aged eight to adult. The first stage of this utterly unique brain teaser from Drumond Park Games (RRP a great-value £9.99) is relatively easy to solve – but the puzzle then progresses to a further five levels of challenge. The first two puzzles, The Dots and The Colours, come in the Oginov Starter Pack – in the shops now! For The Dots you have to match various numbers of dots - and for The Colours, you are challenged to create the perfect colour combination.
To master the puzzle, you follow the easy instructions, flipping and tilting the see-through tumbler ball containing five pyramid-shaped pieces. Gravity makes them "fall" into place – not always in the right place, that's where the skill comes in!
The game play for each puzzle is fully adaptable to suit the players – for instance, they can set their own pattern or time targets - or can race their opponents or handicap themselves in a multiplicity of ways. Thus, the puzzle also has great playground appeal – and is perfect for children to play together, in groups. It has been welcomed by both teachers and parents alike, who appreciate the excellent value it represents, and the progressive longevity of the game play.
The Oginov Tumbler puzzle will make an equally terrific Christmas present for individuals, families and friends who enjoy puzzles or regularly play games, and many of those people who "seem to have everything". It is also perfect as stocking or party gift. It has its own interactive website, www.OGINOV.com, providing hints and tips and giving news and progress on the release of the next two twin puzzle-packs - on which Dr Pantazis Houlis, the inventor, is currently working.
