First Blog on my first REVOMAZE!

Hi All,

This is my first attempt at blogging, so please let me know your thoughts.

As many of you know, I am new to the company and to REVOMAZE and for those of you who do not know, my name is Emma and I started with the company in February. I thought I would share a little about my experiences with REVOMAZE so far.

Like starting any new job, I spent my first few weeks learning the ropes and taking in a lot of information about the company & the REVOMAZES- past, present and future.

Now, I wouldn’t call myself a keen puzzler but if there happens to be a puzzle lying around I will often find myself glued to it, so as you can probably imagine I was itching to get my hands on one of these interesting puzzles. I’d had chance to play around with the V1 Indigo in a clear sleeve to get the general idea of how these puzzles worked but it took most of the challenge out of it being able to see. I soon managed to get my hands on a V1 Aqua (which wasn’t too hard being here at HQ). I would like to say I did it with ease, but unfortunately I did take a glance at the map for guidance and an hour or so later it was open, I knew from the moment I glance at the map that I had deprived myself of the ‘AHAH’ feeling everyone talks about. I think the V1 Aqua does exactly what it was design for to help introduce you to the REVOMAZE.

Following Aqua the next obvious step was the V1 Blue and It didn’t seem to take me long to work my way through the Blue. Well, until arriving at one particular point that no matter what I did, I fell into traps and had to start all over again, those of you familiar with the Blue will most likely know the point I am referring too. After giving up for a couple of days, I decided to take the Blue with me on a 5-hour car journey (obviously as a passenger). After spending the majority of the trip falling at the same hurdle or asleep, I eventually managed to get past it and carefully navigate myself to the end. The feeling of accomplishment on opening the Blue was great! I finally got that ‘A-Hah’ feeling.

I am currently working on the V1 Bronze and I would love to say it’s going great, but I feel this puzzle is a little beyond me at the moment and it currently spends its days teasing me from the corner of my desk. I pick it up every so often but haven’t quite worked up the courage to give it a real go. Maybe it will come with me on the next long car journey…. I will be sure to update when I defeat the Bronze.

Which REVOMAZE was your first?

Would you recommend the Blue to a REVOMAZE novice?

    My first Revomaze was a Bronze, once I realised I wasn’t going to solve it anytime soon, I moved down to a Green Obsession, again, I wasn’t really getting it, then I got a Blue,

    This was probably the best choice, I solved it in a couple of weeks, and then the Green Obsession a couple of days after that.

    At this moment in time I’m working on both the Bronze and Titanium, and have had the first A-Hah moment in the Bronze.

    I would definitely say start with a Blue, but I may be a bit biased as I’ve never tried the Aqua.

    Tut-tut for cheating 🙂
