Brick Fetish

The problem was that the Lego brick, with an aspect ratio of 6:5, was different than standard European construction modules of 1:1. Rather than contend with the problems of using regular Lego bricks he simply had new, special bricks molded for him. Bricks that would allow him to more closely copy his architectural plans. These new bricks were based on a 5mm cube (1:1) and were about 5/8 the size of a standard Lego brick. After he finished his house model, Godtfred began to investigate the possibility of marketing these elements to architects and planners.

Everything You Need To Move Beyond Lego. May 2013. I believe this is the first review I write for SmartGames.

May 2013

As I've been saying in past reviews I love multi-challenge games, not just from ThinkFun, which might be the most popular, but from other brands as well. In fact, SmartGames has one of my absolute favorites, Oskar's Anti-Virus, which I'll be reviewing soon. Today, I will be talking about IQ-Twist, a very clever highly addictive puzzle game. The IQ-Twist can be simply described as a 100 packing puzzles in 1. Since I'm a big fan of packing puzzles, you can imagine how cool I think this game is. The game has a very interesting and practical design, perfect for your travels. The rules of the game are very simple. There are five difficulty levels. Since the difficulty is relative to your packing skills, the time to solve each challenge will vary greatly.

Closing Comments: The IQ-Twist is a superb puzzle game. Availability: You can find the IQ-Twist at for about €13. Lego dimensions: the measurements. Search Thingiverse. The Free Universal Construction Kit. Ever wanted to connect your Legos and Tinkertoys together?
