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 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.

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.

As a connoisseuse of marble-rolling games (or did I mean "addict"?), I love the Perplexus Epic. It's a big step beyond the original: many paths are curved in a way that makes them non-planar, and play necessarily involves a lot more acceleration and deceleration than the original. There are also at least two points where the ball has to drop through the air a significant distance, and there are many more moving parts. I'm especially charmed by the "gondola", a sliding structure that is used and re-used ingeniously.

There are some manufacturing inconsistencies, as others have said. My co-worker also has an Epic. On his Epic there is only one wall on the path at 18, where mine has two walls; he also claims that my see-saw works better. Having now played all the way through, I've found one flaw in the manufacturing of mine: after 114 but before the blue circular barrier, the blue tube passes too close to the gray track and the ball cannot continue. I've tried bumping the ball up and over this unintended barrier but without a lot of luck. There's also one especially soft spot in the transparent sphere.

The Epic provides three extra starting points along the path -- Practices A, B and C, which drop you into the path at 33, 56 and 91. Other practice points become available if you use a small magnet to bring the ball up and drop it onto the track. Points that are especially accessible this way include 24, 45, 49, 117, 63 (the steps), 104, 31, and 80. I definitely recommend this trick for repeated practice of specific parts of the track that are giving you trouble, or parts that are impassible due to a loose screw.

This is a great puzzle toy. For the price, it will provide many hours of 'entertainment'. To maneuver the rolling ball thru the puzzle 'tracks' it involves several skills; Hand/Eye coordination, problem-solving, perception, feel and projection. Along with PATIENCE!
AGE?? I'm saying for kids at least 10 yrs old or so. They can figure it out, but the hand/eye coordination will be a struggle. You can see by my PICTURE how I calmed my senses and worked diligently thru the stages. :-0
There are many areas where you can restart the ball on a recent track by jerking the thing up and landing the ball there. Also, every so often there are stages for re-entry without going back to the start. I shook it pretty good sometimes. It is pretty well built. But if you plan on taking it on a trip for the kids or yourself, handle it with care. Plus, in a moving vehicle, it will be that much more difficult.
GOOD LUCK!!
( I replaced the plastic stand with a more sturdy holder )
