Product Description

Product Description

IcoSoKu is a surprisingly challenging puzzle that will test your spatial skills, your ability to keep several things in your head at once, and your ability to focus. Arrange the triangular dominoes so that the cornder that touch the round yellow corner number add up to that number. A brand new, mind-bending puzzle from Recent Toys.

From the Manufacturer

The puzzle is a maddening addition. Place the number buttons randomly on the ball. Solve the puzzle by matching the dots to the numbers so that all of the dots touching a number add up to that amount. There are thousands of ways to play. It all adds up to fun - you can count on it.

Pros: If you write down the positions when you first get it, at least you can return the puzzle to a solved state easily. It's fun to click the pieces in and out, even if you don't end up with a solution. It's visually very attractive. It makes for "family fun" over the holidays as everyone has their turn at not being able to solve it.

Cons: The tiles and pins actually don't all stay in their respective positions properly, ie, they can easily fall out in the usual course of playing with this toy. This makes the puzzle more difficult than it needs to be. Also, the numbers start to wear off the pins after just a few days. This toy is marked as ages 6 and up, but I would suggest ages 12 and up.

Unlike other puzzles where you feel as though you are making progress, this puzzle gives beginners the experience of rapidly moving from having all the pieces out - to having "all but one" piece back in, which is not the "correct" piece you were hoping for... but there is no intermediate feedback. I will have to play with it more to see what happens a few weeks into playing, but I can predict that the intense fun most people feel for the toy will wear off within an hour, and 95% of owners will not pick it up again. However, diehard puzzle-lovers will continue beyond this initial phase. I don't really understand the notion that it is educational (in the traditional sense), unless you do what a previous reviewer recommended and remove only the yellow pegs. However, I can't imagine a child who would refrain from pulling out the triangles.

In summary: Totally awesome puzzle for those who *really* love puzzles.

This is a great toy/game for anyone who loves Soduku, logic puzzles or things like a Rubik's cube. It is absolutely addicting!!!! We opened it up on Christmas Eve, and could not put it down. We ended up staying up most of the night working it out. And don't be fooled into thinking you'll figure it out easily, you won't. It's alot harder than it seems at first -- or tenth -- glance. Buy it and you will NOT be disappointed!

Icosoku is a hand held sized ball that holds movable number buttons and triangular tiles. The round yellow number buttons range from one to twelve. There are twenty white triangular tiles that contain different numbers of dots in each corner. The idea is for you to match the white, triangular tiles so that their corner numbers add up to the round yellow number buttons that they surround. Each round yellow number button will be surrounded by five different triangle corners. Some of the corners are blank to make the number additions possible.

Regardless of where you place the little yellow round buttons, the puzzle can be solved which means there are thousands of combinations of game play. It's all in where you place the white triangular tiles. The ball is about five inches across and is the perfect size to hold in your hand comfortably. The tiles and buttons go in and out easily and stay in the ball securely once you snap them in.

The game uses math and logic skills which makes it ideal for both public schools and homeschoolers. It's fun to play and much more difficult than it sounds. It's totally addicting and I keep picking it up to play just a few more minutes to see if I can solve the puzzle. I manage to get almost to the end of the puzzle before realizing that the tiles are not in the correct places because there are no more tiles whose numbers add up properly. Icosoku is meant for ages 7 to 99 although I would think that a younger child might be frustrated in their attempts to solve the puzzle.

Less than a week after Christmas, this educational toy is bagged for trash. After quickly solving the configurations, the entire ball came apart and is impossible to put back together. We have all tried.
The idea is good, however the design construction is poor. Don't waste your money.

Icosoku is so smart! Great way to get kids focused on math. I love the way it can be played over and over again and it's always a new challenge.

This puzzle looked great but it is flimsy and didn't last a day. Very disappointed with the puzzle and it's construction.

The principles of this game are more or less the same as Sudoku proper, except one is dealing with 12 numbers instead of combinations of 9. I've seen 4D Sudoku but find this game to be a much better use of adapting a 2D game into a 3D format. And the game can be used by most ages, and common sense tells anyone that the game shouldn't be around toddlers or infants as well as use by those older if having greasy fingers if one wants to keep this game around long term.

I'm hard to please when it comes to brain teaser games so I give this an 8.5 out of 10, definitely recommended.

I love this so much I can spend hours on it but at the same time I hate it because it takes forever it try to finish it and the prices fall off really easy
