BELOIT, Wis.— Perplexus is the game that’s putting a fresh new spin – literally! – on game play. Patch Products is pleased to become the exclusive distributor of Perplexus to independent toy and gift stores, starting April 1, 2013.

Perplexus ups the ante when it comes to play. It’s a maze, it’s a puzzle and it’s a game, all in one. This labyrinth maze’s windy, obstacle-laden pathways are within a sphere – unlike anything you’ve seen before. The maze circles up and down and ‘round and ‘round inside a clear globe; turn the globe to move the marble inside to its destination!

Here’s how it works:
Perplexus is a maze game where players maneuver a small marble around challenging barriers inside a transparent sphere. Unlike traditional flat-surface mazes that are composed of one path, Perplexus houses various challenging tracks with 100 barriers providing a three-dimensional experience. Players select the track they would like to attempt and must work with gravity to carefully shift, flip and twist the sphere to guide the marble. Players can race each other or the clock.

Choose the version that’s perfect for you: Rookie, for ages 4 and up, Original, for ages 6 and up, Twist, for ages 6 and up and Epic, for ages 8 and up.
