Puzzle pros and shameless geeks are bound to get fired up by ThinkFun’s Laser Maze – the first logic game to incorporate a real laser. Designed for ages 8 up to 90 (okay, we would say that’s just about everyone) and played solo, it inspires players to bend and split a laser beam to light up their target on the game grid. To play, you choose one of the 90 challenge cards (ranked from beginner to expert) and set up your tokens on the grid as indicated. You then need to tap into your logic skills to assess where to add a double-sided mirror, a checkpoint, a blocker or other tokens to direct the laser beam to the target and solve the puzzle. Be warned: some of the expert cards are said to be real mindbenders.
