Gravity Maze - The Falling Marble Logic Game Product Review



Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.


I must say that games have come a long way since I was a kid. So I'm amazed at all of the game options that we have today. Check out the Thinkfun Gravity Maze. This game is a game of logic. And it will definitely have you thinking.

Here is a little product description of Gavity Maze:

This gravity powered logic maze is sure to put your visual perception and reasoning skills to the test. The towers can be arranged in a wide variety of visually stimulating structures but, for each challenge, you’ll have to think carefully to build a path that will carry your marble to the Target Tower.
• Ages 8 to adult
Includes:
• Game Grid 
• 9 Building Towers 
• Target Tower 
• 3 Marbles 
• 60 Challenge Cards (Beginner to Expert) with Solutions 
• Instructions 


Although this game is for ages 8 and up, Lil Man still enjoyed it. I of course helped him with the set up, but he enjoyed putting the marble in the game piece and helping me try to figure out how to place the pieces.

The concept behind the game is really simple. You draw a card and use that card to build your tower.

I struggled with this game at first because, well, I don't think logically ha. I have a difficult time with following visual instructions without a demonstration. Hubby caught on much faster than I did. And this game is somewhat addictive. Once we started playing we wanted to play for awhile. It was a lot of fun. And the more we played the better I got at following the visual cards to complete the game. In my opinion, I think this game would help strengthen those (like me) who learn better by demonstration. This was a fun way to encourage me to think logically from just visual cues.

I like the fact that you are having to think to solve the puzzles. This is not just a mindless game or a game of chance.

If you enjoy challenges and fun games, the Thinkfun Gravity Maze is a game that you will want to check out.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss

What Summer Taught Me

This Summer has been a big learning experience - for both Lil Man and myself. Who knew that an amusement park could be such a learning experience for both of us. I watched as my little boy, all on his own, climbed stairs among strangers, learned how to wait his turn, slide down a water slide, and do it over and over again. I watched as other kids shoved him out of their way, cut in front of him as he stood patiently 'waiting for his turn'. Groves of bigger kids kept cutting in front of him, and I held back and gave him time to respond. This for me was a learning experience. See, people have to have room or space to grow. So I learned how to let go, let out the leash a little, and give Lil Man some space. The first time the kids pushed him aside, he really didn't know what to do. After a few minutes of this, I did intervene. I told him to get in line. Take his turn, and when it was his turn he was to go. And the next time as other kids pushed past him, it only took a few

Rejection

You'd think as many times as I've been rejected in my life that rejection wouldn't hurt anymore. Really, I can't count the number of times that I've been rejected, or slighted, or been on the receiving end of cruel words. I'm almost 40 for pete's sake. Rejection shouldn't bring tears anymore, but it still does. It just seems like I've been faced with it a lot lately. It started with the Running and has seemed to carry over into other parts of my life. I have spent most of my life on the sidelines watching other people. That's what happened with the marathon.   Once again, I'm on the side as others do things that I want to do. I trained. I had to have an unexpected surgery. I got injured. I couldn't run. It happens. It isn't the end of  the world. But what many don't realize is that there are numerous times in my life that I am on the sidelines, watching, wishing I was the one 'out there' - not the one watching. . But
