I enjoy fiddling with lasers--particularly those than can burn my eye out--but I'm not sure how I'm going to like one whose use also requires a certain amount of intellectual fortitude. Or, as the Laser Maze prefers to call it, logic. I feel like if logic were one of my strong suits I'd program video games instead of writing about how cool they are, and be able to consistently load my dishwasher with more than a third of the dirty dishes piled in my sink. But I'll give anything a chance. Even you, Jenna Dewan Tatum.

Laser Maze is a single-player game wherein the participant tries to reflect and split a laser beam module using mirrors and targets on a puzzle grid. Success sends the laser through checkpoints, off beam splitters and double-sided mirrors, around blockers, and straight into the bullseye of the target. A deck of 60 cards establishes the initial board setup, and the player's job is to figure out where amidst the commotion to place the laser. Cards ascend in difficulty from Beginner to Expert.

Maker ThinkFun deems its Laser Maze anywhere from a rewardingly entertaining to hair-pullingly frustrating gift for kids and adults alike.
