This game seems so simple but wow, is it complicated! The goal: to make a complete snakefrom head to tailusing the different shape tiles available to you.

First you have to set up the tile board according to whatever skill puzzle you’re doing (much like Rush Hour). The catch? Those starting tiles can’t move, and you have to use all the rest of the tiles, even if they’re not part of the snake (some of them are blank on the flipside). The easiest starting configurations would be challenging for a 7 or 8 year old, and they only get harder from there. Yes, I did manage to beat the hardest puzzle (#100) but it took me long enough! Talk about exercising the cranium! The game board comes with a plastic cover to keep all your pieces in one place, making it a perfect travel game.
