On the Fourth Day of Christmas

My true love gave to me
Four Revo Mazes
Three Diamond Puzzles
Two Crystal Dolphins
And a Santa on a cube tree.

Ok, these have me stumped.  The Revo Mazes, which I've been told are easy, are not!  I've yet to solve a single one of these things.  I'm surprised that anyone can.  As you can see from the webpage, there is a gold version as well. I think since I have 4 expensive paperweights I may just pass on the 5th.  But if anyone is feeling rather generous and wants to gift me one....(Ok, a girl can dream can't she!)  I bought the blue and the green from the company in the UK when they first came out-or maybe when the green came out I bought backwards to save shipping costs (lord knows how I hate those) I had them sent to a friends in the UK and had to wait until he went home and came back during that summer.  The wait almost killed me, but once I started playing, the holding on to that little tiny bolt that pokes out did.  My hands simply aren't strong enough for that!  The bronze and silver I picked up at IPP30 for a good price.  PuzzleMaster just didn't want to ship that extra weight back to Canada, and since I was only traveling to HK and bringing all my puzzles on the plane, I simply couldn't resist the deal!  I read over on another blog there is an orange one out there, and as much as I'd love to get one....Money better spent on other toys.


  1. Who on earth told you they were easy?!

  2. You need to give them a go, Rox. They are terrific puzzles. The blue is pretty reasonable and is solvable in 5-7 hours. The green about the same. The bronze is my favourite and that will take much much longer. Forget the silver - it is practically impossible for normal people (although you aren't really normal!!!).

    They don't need strength just a decent grip and a little stamina. To make it easier they sell a training aid to make it easier to grip - out of stock at revo HQ but I think Puzzle Master has them.

    Looking forward to days 5 - 12!!
