This week my youngest was away visiting her grandma so we decided to play a game that was geared more towards older players since it was just my 16-year-old, myself, and husband at home. This week we played Color Cube Sudoku from Thinkfun. It’s a really fun and challenging puzzle game that you can play alone or as a group. We really enjoy puzzle games and this one was a lot of fun to try and figure out. For snacks, we had a great box subscription called sweets giftbox. Full of yummy treats and each month provides new snacks to try out.

Color Cube Sudoku is a fun and challenging puzzle game. It has more than half a million solutions and over a 2 trillion combinations. So every time you play it you get a different game and different solution. It’s a great and challenging puzzle game that you can solve over and over again. You can solve it by yourself or work with a partner or group of people to come up with a solution together.
In the box you will find:
1 game board
9 color cubes
Who Would Enjoy this Game:
Color Cube Sudoku is designed for ages 8 and up. It’s a fun challenging game so it’s enjoyed by adults as well as children. I love Sudoku puzzles and really enjoyed this game. My 16-year-old had a lot of fun trying to figure it out. I think it would be harder for younger players. I know I struggled a little trying to figure out a solution. So it is challenging enough for adults and older kids. It’s more of an individual game or for a small group to work on together. It can be a lot of fun though if you really like puzzles.
Is It Fun:
Yes, It is a lot of fun to figure out the different combinations. Each time we played we removed the cubes completely to mix them up and get a different combination. We worked together on one puzzle and then we timed how long it took to complete and challenged each other to see who could get the better time. There are a lot of possibilities for play on this one. It makes a great game night.
The gameplay is very simple and easy. Set up the game board in the middle of the table and remove the cubes to the side to set up the game.
Then spend time trying to arrange the cubes so that no color is repeated in any row or column. There are six different colors (green, orange, red, blue, white, and yellow). Each row and column show have the six colors with none repeating. It sounds easy but it’s harder than it looks. Keep working on it until you have no repeating colors to win the game.
No concerns with this game. It’s fun, educational, and challenging. The only concern would be if it is age appropriate. It’s a great way to get the kids thinking and problem-solving.
