Need a fun challenge to beat the winter doldrums? ThinkFun, Inc., a leader in educational games, today announced a way to entertain and challenge minds while giving back to schools with the 36 CUBE Contest. The first 36 puzzlers who can demonstrate they solved the 36 CUBE puzzle correctly will win a ThinkFun Game Club Kit for the school of their choice – and have the glory of solving what is quite possibly the world’s most challenging puzzle.
The contest begins December 2 and ends December 31, 2008. Entrants must prove they solved the 36 CUBE by submitting two photos – one showing the completed top of the puzzle and another showing a completed side of the same puzzle. The first 36 people to do so will be named winners, receiving a ThinkFun Game Club Kit to be donated to the school of their choice. Each Game Club Kit has an approximate retail value of $360.00 and is comprised of an assortment of problem-solving games and puzzles that bring fun and learning to the classroom.
“With the 36 CUBE Contest, contestants are not only able to show off their problem- solving skills, they also have the chance to give back to schools in an exciting and unique way,” said Bill Ritchie, CEO and Founder of ThinkFun, Inc. “This contest embodies our mission to challenge kids and adults to become better thinkers, and to develop the deduction skills that they can carry with them throughout life.”
36 CUBE is available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 at Barnes & Noble, Calendar Club, specialty toy stores and www.ThinkFun.com.
