This is the new Rubik’s 2x2 with tough tiles. The traditional stickers have been replaced with plastic; which mean no fading, peeling or cheating! It also has a brand new mechanism that results in a smoother, faster and more reliable Rubik’s Cube.

It might look easy but don’t be fooled – it is still a challenge. The 2x2 Rubik’s Cube (also known as the pocket or mini cube) consists of 8 corner cubies and operates in much the same way as its bigger brother – the Rubik’s Cube. As it is smaller than the traditional Rubik’s cube it can be more easily slipped into a pocket or bag, making it the perfect item to take on a bus, train or plane, and an awesome loot bag gift. It also makes a great present for younger puzzle enthusiasts who might not be ready for a 3x3 Rubik’s Cube.

The Rubik’s 2x2 Cube has 3,674,160 permutations and only one solution!

Improve your skills through 35 fun activities. This isn’t just a textbook about the rules of the game!

Try Scholar’s Mate: the four-move checkmate every beginner needs to know, and when you’re really good, play Bughouse, a crazy four-person game with two chess sets. All the activities have clear, colorful illustrations so you can see exactly where pieces should be on the chessboard.

Shut-the-Box is a traditional game of counting, addition, and probability that dates back to the 18th century when the game was enjoyed by Norman fishermen after a long day at sea. Today the game is played with family, used in classrooms for teaching addition and probability, and is even a betting game played in pubs all over Europe! Roll the dice and lay down any numerical combination of tiles that match your roll. Just keep on rolling until you can no longer match your roll on the remaining tiles. The lowest score wins the game. If you lay down all the tiles, then you've "shut the box." This four-sided version is made of medium stained wood with a felt playing surface. It features 10 wooden number tiles rather than the typical nine numbers of other versions, bringing more numerical combinations into play. Can be played with any number of players, but the 4-sided board makes it ideal for four players. Sure to bring hours of enjoyment and old world charm to your home.

For 2-4 players.

Includes 8 dice and instructions.

Box measures approximately 14" long x 14" wide x 2" tall.
