Fans of the frustrating 80’s toy Rubik’s Cube know that unless you were in Mensa, it was nearly impossible to get all the colored squares to match. Unless you peeled the stickers off and then you “won” the game. Not that we ever did that or anything.
Now, the Cube has gotten a whole lot cooler with Rubik’s Race, a fast-paced game where the object is to win the race to copy a random 3×3 square pattern of 9 colored squares by sliding the tiles on your side of the game base. It’s fun because you can play with a partner and it also has a Battleship vibe to it. It (almost) makes us want to break out the original Rubik’s Cube and play/peel again ($19.99, rubiks.com).
