RUBIK’s Race Gives Retro Twist to Holiday Gift Giving

RUBIK’s Race is a re-introduction of the original ‘80s game inspired by the world’s most popular, yet torturous, hand-held puzzle!

Designed by reclusive Hungarian sculptor, engineer and architect, Professor Erno Rubik, inventor of the original RUBIK’s Cube®, RUBIK’s Race is the ultimate face-to-face game that challenges players to get their brain and fingers racing and go head-to-head with their opponent to match the pattern of nine coloured squares.

Like the original RUBIK’s Cube, the world’s best selling puzzle ever which has achieved global sales exceeding 350 million units since its launch in 1980, RUBIK’s Race requires skill, speed and logic. But in this game — players race to complete a puzzle!

Shift It. Slide It. Solve it!
The RUBIK’s Race includes a Scrambler, a device that contains 9 coloured cubes, and a Game Base. The Base allows two players to face one another, separated by a hinged vertical “window,” and provides each player with a 5×5 slide puzzle of 24 tiles comprising of the six iconic cube face colours — white, yellow, orange, red, green and blue.

At the beginning of each round, the Scrambler is shaken to set the target pattern. The goal for each player is to frantically shift and slide their tiles around and try to be the first to make the 3×3 centre of their puzzle match the target pattern of the RUBIK’s Cube Scrambler. When a player completes the 3×3 target pattern on their board, they drop the window onto their playing area, covering all but the centre 3×3 grid, and declare themselves the winner!

My son Elijah is a thinker and at age 7 this game has him frustrated, puzzled, and obsessed – kind of like I was with the RUBIK’s cube when I was a kid!  I’m so glad I can share the frustration with him!! (ha!)

RUBIK’s Race is for ages 5+ and can be found at toy and game retailers across Canada, including Toys ‘R’ Us. Manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $19.99.
