Off The Grid

A colorful spin on Japanese logic puzzles, this wooden board uses wooden marbles in nine great colors instead of numbers to solve each game.

Start the game by placing the marbles on the board as shown by one of the 104 puzzle cards. Solve the puzzle by placing one (and only one!) of each color marble in each of the nine rows, columns, and three-by-three squares. Strategy is the name of the game. Don't lose your marbles trying to crack different combinations--there's only one correct solution to each puzzle!

When you're off the grid, leave this sculptural set out as a smart design accent. Made of rubber tree wood and paper in China.

Includes 104 puzzles in 5 levels of difficulty, color conversion card, card holder, storage tray, and solution booklet.

        Gift from my young adult daughter. I love color and liked sudoku, so this is perfect for me. With the colors rather than numbers, the board can be turned in all directions to give yourself a different point of view. Also, that allows for more than one person to work on it at same time. Easy, intermediate and challenging puzzles promise a good time for a variety of ages and capabilities.

          Fun, colorful game. As an art teacher, the colors and ability to pick up and replace certain colors is more attractive to me than the numbers of typical sudoku.

                  We got this for our 8-year-old for Christmas. It is a very well-made toy that is really colorful and he has enjoyed playing with it. I have no worries that it will not be able to withstand the sort of abuse that kids can visit upon their toys. Our older kid enjoy playing with it as well.

                    Suuuuper cute, but I agree with Ali VVVV, a little too expensive for my taste.

                    I got this as a birthday gift and just love it! Yes, it's pricey but it's worth it. It's so well made, I proudly display it on the game table at all times.

                    Looks like a great item! ..And a fun way for those more visually-oriented (and numbers-phobic) to get their fill of brain teasers

                    This looks GREAT! A definite purchase if uncommongoods ends up carrying it. Although I am not a huge fan of the original letter/number version of this, I LOVE the color version! It speaks to my inner artist and would make for a great conversation piece and coffee table entertainment.
