Back Spin Review (Thinkfun Inc)

Back Spin
What It Is

A brainteaser to play anywhere, Back Spin is an interactive puzzle from ThinkFun. It's a double-sided disc filled with 35 multi-colored balls that they player must get in their color-coded slots. The color coded aspect gives it a similar feel to a Rubik's Cube. Designed for solo play, the game comes solved so first step is scrambling the colors around to be solved again. The disc features two halves that the player twists to pass balls from one side to the other. Logic and reasoning are needed to master the puzzle. 

Is It Fun?
Small and portable, it's a great toy for travel since it easily fits in a bag, and is a fun way to pass time during flights, long car rides, or when waiting somewhere. It may be challenging, even for adults.
Who It’s For
Back Spin is a one-player game for kids, ages 8 and up, to play anywhere. It's portable and easy to travel with. Adults may enjoy it, and find it challenging as well.  
What To Be Aware Of
No real instructions are needed, as the game play is pretty self-explanatory. That said, it can be pretty challenging, even for adults, especially since there are two sides to solve.
