Holiday 2010 Giveaway: Rubik's Slide Electronic Puzzle Game [CLOSED]

The Rubik’s Slide is a new game from the makers of the Rubik’s Cube. It combines the puzzle of a Rubik’s Cube into and electronic game. The object is to make the colored lights on the face of the electronic Rubik’s Cube match a specified set. You must twist, push, and pull the face of the game to move the lights, as seen in the video below.

I am a Rubik’s Cube-aholic, so I was thrilled to get to try this game. It is fun, entertaining, engaging, and hours of entertainment for anyone age five years through adult. Avery, my nine year old, has had a blast with this game too, almost as much fun as I’ve had. You can play this game in two modes, timed and free play. In timed mode, you try to solve as many puzzles as you can in an alloted time. In free play, you are free to play as many of the 10,000 possible puzzles as you like. You can also play as a one-player game or battle in a two or more player game. It is conveniently travel-sized, and made for tons of entertainment for Avery on a recent road trip of ours. It does require two “AA” batteries to operate, but those come installed.

This would make an excellent Christmas gift for any puzzle-lover in your life and is a perfect size for a stocking stuffer. You can learn more about Rubik’s Slide and see videos on their website, . You can purchase Rubik’s Slide at most major retailers including Target, Toys R Us, Wal-Mart, JCPenney,, and more. It retails for approximately $17.99.
