This puzzle is what I would call an innovative brainteaser. It apparently did not
appear to be a brainteaser. However this puzzle was certainly no joke. While it is less
geometric with linear edges and points as tangrams, soma cubes, or pentominoes, it still
was not an easy puzzle. Arranging the colors in the proper color and shape silhouettes
really turned out to be tough. If you are looking for puzzles other than standard picture
jigsaw puzzles and you are artistically inclined, then this puzzle, reasonably priced, would
be the best puzzle to purchase.

It sounds simple enough. You have a model and eight cards. You need to stack the eight cards so as to reproduce the model. How hard can it be? Well, in truth, harder that you might think. There are hundreds of possible combinations, subtle differences in shapes and colors that make the task challenging. You try, you think you have it, but then, there is that lingering small detail that just does not fit. You deconstruct and reconstruct. There are plenty of qualities to this game: it is fun. It can be played alone or in group. It is suitable for pretty much anywhere: home, car, or plane. It is durable. I see only one drawback: it is a lot more fun to do it the first time. Once you have done it, your brain stores the pattern and it gets easier to reproduce. My advice: don't do it all at once. Savor slowly, like a good meal and display your favorite pattern as decoration. (I received this game complimentary from ThinkFun in exchange for an honest review.)

I found Stenzzles to be a unique visual puzzle that is more challenging than it first appears. The purpose of the puzzle is to stack 8 stencil cards on top of another with the final result matching the exact color pattern of the challenge card. With thousands of possible combinations for stacking the cards, it makes completing the puzzle more difficult than you might think. The subleties in the shapes and color patterns will have you rearranging the order and orientation of the cards until you get a perfect match. As a speech pathologist, I am planning to use this puzzle with some of my higher-level cognitive patients who need to work on visual spatial/perceptual skills. I feel it is an appropriate challenge for ages 8-adult.
Perfect little game to keep out on your desk for a quick, challenging distraction and the finished product looks like a piece of art.

I loved that it is small - packaged it's only 5.25" x 5.25" - and only has a few pieces which makes it an easy puzzle to carry in a purse or backpack (a drawstring carrybag would have been nice) to take along for playing in the car or in a restaurant. I think that the sports theme and coloring would appeal to boys. It took me about 10 minutes to solve each of the first two puzzles so it's challenging but not too difficult. I'm not sure how durable this will be but I plan to test it out at the library where I work. I only rated it as 3 stars because I think that the replayability (very important for me) will be limited.

Let me start by saying that I was sent a set of these Stenzzles for free to review. The opinion is my honest view.
We have 3 boys, ages 9, 6, and 1. My husband, our oldest, and I were the ones to test this out.
It was challenging. Our son thought it was cool but hard. This isn't at the top of our list of favorites. We have a few other logic puzzles from ThinkFun that we all enjoy a lot more. I think this is one that will be enjoyed more later when our boys are older.
The cards are very durable and I don't worry about them wearing out anytime soon.

Stenzzles -Sports is definitely a challenging game with hundreds of possible combinations for stacking the cards, it makes completing the puzzle more difficult than you might think but don't let that stop you as both kids and adults will love the challenge and ability to play alone or in a group. This is another great Thinkfun game for home, office or on the road use. It is also compact in size so easily travels and stores. If you are looking for a fun mind challenging game this is a great choice.

We love ThinkFun products. Most of their games/puzzles offer multiple options for play, and they all seem to teach the value of patience and persistence. Stenzzles is no exception.

It's a clever concept: Flip, turn, and layer the eight stencils until you match the puzzle image provided. We each took turns solving the puzzles individually, and also enjoyed working cooperatively on a few. They were challenging, but not frustratingly so. Both my 7 year old and my 11 year old preferred working as a team, but could solve the puzzles on their own. Arriving at the correct pattern involved a good mix of educated guessing and methodical trial and error.

My 7 year old also had a lot of fun using colored pencils to stencil with Stenzzles. After playing with them as a stacking puzzle, she thought it was cool to color her own layered design.

We give Stenzzles four stars, rather than five, mainly because of the design. The stencils are thick, laminated cardboard. They seem sturdy, but within minutes of gentle use, the laminated paper started to peel back from the inner edge of one of our stencils. It seems like plastic would have been a better choice. We all agreed that we would have preferred larger stencils, too. Because the cardboard is thick, when the small, 4-inch squares are stacked, it becomes difficult to see the smaller slivers of color within the puzzle. I suppose the small squares were chosen so that stacked designs displayed in the provided stand wouldn't take up too much space. My personal preference would be to use Stenzzles as a puzzle/game rather than an art piece, so I guess I would have preferred one of ThinkFun's drawstring storage bags instead of the stand.
