Quarks!® is a spherical 3D puzzle based on the sliding shell mechanism. It is also a brainteaser that makes the players familiar with some concepts of modern physics. Inspired by the world of quarks (subatomic particles that are one of the fundamental building blocks of all matter in the universe), Quarks!®  is an amazing game that will challenge anyone at any age. Holding the ball with both hands, twist the hemispheres in any direction to scramble the color pattern. The objective of the puzzle is to bring all the six colored spiral shaped quarks back to their original order. As an alternative to giving up, Quarks!® can easily be taken apart and recombined; a puzzle in itself. Once assembled, the Quarks! globe is returned to the original “out of the box” configuration.

Scramble Squares® are nine-piece puzzles that feature original art and only one solution. They're great for everyone from age 4 to 104. Interesting fact: Modern football had its start in the mid 1800s, when Webb Ellis of England’s Rugby School scored a goal in a game of English soccer football by picking up the ball and running it over the goal line in a desperate attempt to win the game before the school’s five o’clock curfew bell. From that day forward, English football divided into two distinct games: the “handling game,” rugby, where the ball could be advanced by carrying it, and the “dribbling game,” soccer, where the ball must be advanced by kicking it.
