Product Description

Brainstring Original is a patented brilliant new puzzle game for people between 7 and 70. Brainstring Original comprises a transparant polycarbonate cube with 12 elastic strings. Using an ingenius pattern of incisions the strings can be moved through the cube. The result: complex knots appear on the inside.

The main goal is to move the coloured buttons from hole-to-hole to create a solid color on every side and untangle the knot in the middle.

Designed by Guido Lap.

I've already reviewed this, but after playing with the toy for a few weeks, I've discovered it's VERY EASY to solve. But I still think it's a very original design and looks really neat.

I ordered this on a whim, not sure if it was too childish for me. It's awesome! It's a lot of fun, and, as it says on the box, it would be great for a long car ride. It takes careful reasoning and some trial and error to untangle the cords. The puzzle looks really cool with the three coloured cords running through the clear case. I was very hesitant to scramble up the cords, as there is no solution available, obviously. I asked my wife to make 5 moves to scramble it a little. I got it back a minute later with a nasty looking Gordion knot in the puzzle for me to solve. (I think she made more than 5 moves). I sweated over it for a while but got it back to the original configuration. And I'm going to try it again right now!
