I loved the original Perplexus so I couldn't wait for Perplexus Epic to come out. I bought Epic at a retail store and I can tell you the guy who invented this thing must be an evil genius! You could speed through the Original Perplexus once knew what you were doing. With Epic, you have to finesse the ball different ways in different areas or that thing is going off the track.Cool new obstacles. One looks like stairs out of an Escher painting. If you loved Original Perplexus you have got to try EPIC!

I'm waiting for my third Epic as I write this. The first two had defects that made them unplayable, which is sad because I'm a big fan of the Rookie and Standard balls and I've been waiting for this one for awhile. The Perplexuses are great games and I would fully give this a 5 across the board if the quality control on these things was a little better. :(

The first Epic had a misaligned section of the maze that offset several key points, making them almost impossible. Eventually I realized it WAS impossible at a point because the ball didn't have room to go under an obstacle. Returned it. Amazon sent another.

Second Epic looked good, but on closer inspection the piece that the gondola slides along has a spur in the plastic that won't allow the gondola to slide all the way across to the other side. Returned it. Amazon sent another.

Update: The third Perplexus is defect-free, I'm happy to report. It was almost a game in itself trying to get one that wasn't defective. I'm glad that Amazon makes returning and exchanging items easy.

I bought 2 of these - one for myself to test the durability and one for a gift to an 11 year-old grandson who loves puzzles. Contrary to my worries brought on by other reviewers, both Perplexus Epic spheres arrived in perfect shape. It didn't take me long to realize why so many people had problems. The maze is very, very difficult to work. The unit is designed so that one always has to have the ball placed in the start position to begin. Personally, I have gotten past 19 of over 120 numbers only a few times, so most of the sphere remains unexplored. The numbers are impressed (but not colored) into the plastic, so they are somewhat hard to read, but not impossible. I have not dropped the sphere and so far have resisted the urge to throw it against the wall, so I don't know how robust the unit is. I have learned that if the ball lands in a track farther down the line in the puzzle when it falls out from where you're working, to continue working from that point because it may be your only chance to explore that section of the puzzle. In short it's a puzzle that makes you want to tear your hair out. I doubt that it could ever be completed, but I'll enjoy trying. The second sphere is being returned. I like to give my grandson something that he might be able to solve.

December. Have worked with the Epic for some time. My opinion has not changed in that it is an advanced kid/adult puzzle. I did find starting "practice" spots: A at 33; B at 56; and C at 91. They all lead, eventually, to nearly impossible tracks for the ball. I'm still fascinated by maze and hope to make it to #125 some year.

After waiting for months (including the postponed release date), the Perpluxus Epic finally arrived yesterday and my son was overjoyed when he returned home from school.
However, after only an hour of playing with it he showed me that one of the screws (by #1) was very loose and that he must be careful that the ball doesn't fall through when he begins playing(picture posted).
Another hour later, he came to me to tell me that the funnel piece totally dislodged from the Perplexus (picture posted as well) and is now rolling around the unit whenever it is moved, effectively making it unplayable. This seems to be the same piece that has broken on another reviewer unit as well.
As you can imagine, my son and I are devastated!
After waiting months for this, the unit broke within a few short hours and was not even dropped once (compared to our regular Perplexus that has been dropped multiple times but keeps on ticking!).
I have emailed the company but have not received a response yet.
Edit- After contacting the company, I received a replacement which seems to be much better quality.

Just gave this to my grandson for his 10th birthday. He was ecstatic and so was everybody else at the party. They all took a turn with it. I like it because it is made well and worth the price. The idea behind the levels of play keeps kids interested a long time. This is my third time I've bought a Perplexus as a gift and have gotten great feed back from all the recipients.

We purchased the original perplexus maze for my son, and he loved it, I loved it. We thought this would be a nice step up for a challange. While the maze challanges are very well designed, the construction quality is very lacking. The outside shell is noticably thinner than the original. We purchased the maze three months ago, and some of the challanges/obsticles are now falling apart. I would recommend this if you are an adult and will handle with the utmost care, but if this is intended for anyone who may accidentally let it roll off of the chair, I would save your money.
