Orange Opening Time

Post by Playa » Mon Nov 05, 2018 2:12 am

So how long does it take to open Orange?
I heard that it is solved rather fast compare to the Bronze, which seems to be somehow similar in difficulty.

How many hours of fun does one have with the orange.

The price tag is rather hefty, how much do I get for my money? Thinking of getting this as my second Revomaze after the Bronze while it is still available.

I would always say the orange is a higher challenge than the bronze. There's more going on which will take time to work out and through but that can be relative on your knowledge of revo's. My orange journey took a lot longer than bronze but it was definitely worth it. Orange is a favourite just on the maze design rather than the puzzle itself. Mark did a great job with it.

I opened orange after bronze and it took me substantially longer. To the point where orange sat idle for months.
I'm still undecided on which I like more but they're both great puzzles.
Your experience may be different, but I definitely got more puzzling time per dollar out of orange :roll:

Bronze took me almost exactly a week of almost non stop play. The Orange took me almost exactly a month to open and it took help/tips from 3-4 different members here for me to open as well. If anyone manages to open the Orange faster than it took them to open the bronze, I would be extremely impressed!!

I started with the Orange and it took a really long time for me and I agree Guiltfeeder, the Orange is a harder maze and normally it should take longer time to solve than the Bronze. I think the Orange is a better puzzle than the Bronze and a real adventure to solve. I think it took me 85 hours to solve the Orange but it was my first Revomaze so I guess this is not the normal opening time :)

I haven't been timing myself, but I am quite sure orange has taken me less time to solve than bronze did. In fact orange has been one of the quicker revomazes for me to solve, may be I got lucky with orange or may be my experience with the other mazes has helped.

Although it took me very little time to open, it is a great maze and feels like it will be quite repeatable.
