It is called Rubik's Cage and it is made by the creators of what is arguable the world's most famous 3D puzzle, the Rubik's Cube. But this isn't just another version of the classic cube puzzle. What is actually going on with this amazing new toy from the Rubik stable is much more complicated – and more fun! Think of it like a multilevel tic-tac-toe game, where the opponent (or the opponents: you can have up to four players) can cut you off by either taking the spot you were thinking of going to complete a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal triad, or by completely reshuffling the cage when they flip it upside down or twist it!
Included with the Rubik's Cage pack is the cage itself, 24 cubes (6 colors with 4 cubes each), and a lid that keeps the cubes in place every time you or one of your opponents wants to flip the cage upside down. You split the cubes among the players and start working one cube or move at a time: you can either put in a cube or manipulate the cage to bring your cubes together or stop the others from doing the same. It sounds easy but it's not, and it really takes fun to s many new and different levels!
