Frustr8tor Pocket Brain Teaser – Can you muster the patience?
We look back on history and oftentimes feel as though we’re missing out on something. Maybe we wish some of the mannerisms still held to present-day, or that some fashions had not gone out of style. Of course, if you actually went back in time for those few pleasantries, you would be met with an onslaught of other issues.
However, some things are good enough to stand the test of time. There’s a lot of music, art, and books that have come from ye olden days, as well as some games. We’re not just talking about hopscotch of course though. The Frust8tor Pocket Brain Teaser is a modern version of an old brain-buster from 1848. While the spelling might be a bit of an annoyance, the game, while simple, can keep your mind tangled for a good minute or more.
It is a puzzle of eight queens on a chess board. They can’t be allowed to kill each other, which means not being able to meet horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. There aren’t any small pieces, so you shouldn’t need to worry about dropping anything other than the game itself. To play, simply slide the markers. If you want to make it more difficult, you can toss in some red markers which take the place of the queen, and force a spot to be used. It’s $10, and could be a better alternative to Angry Birds while you’re on public transit.
