This review is from: Perplexus Epic (Toy)
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!

What retail store did you find it in? I can't seem to locate it anywhere, and my order online has said "getting ready to ship" for 3 days now...

Same problem. I pre-ordered weeks ago and it hasn't shipped, and TRUS/ K-Mart by me don't have it.

Is this good for a young adult? It looks like it would be fun for any age group.

It's good for any age. I have serious concerns about the build quality, though. Our first unit broke within two hours of normal use. We were sent a second one free of charge. The second one broke after a week. We didn't bother to contact Perplexus again. It's okay for the price, but the frequency of defective units prevents me from recommending it.

Perplexus has a website. You can type in a zipcode and it will pull up any store that sells them. That's how we got ours.
