Review:
This colorful challenge is based on knowing (or learning) the spectrum color sequence in order to select correct pairs of wood “marbles” in order to build a pyramid. The solo puzzle starts with 30 marbles randomly placed in a circular trough on the playing board. A square frame is placed in the center and the solo player's challenge is to pick up adjacent pairs of marbles from the ridge and place them in the frame to build a pyramid. BUT, the marble pairs must share one primary color(red, yellow, or blue) in common. For example, a yellow marble can be paired with either an orange (which is a combination of red and yellow) or green (made of blue and yellow) marble, but not a red, purple, or blue one. Careful selections early in the game will assure that there are enough usable pairs to complete the pyramid. For a greater challenge, solvers can roll a die to determine which color marble must be the final one placed at the apex of the pyramid.
