What is it
Roll The Dice & Race Your Opponent To Complete The Square!
The aim of each of the 62,208 possible puzzles is to complete the square using the nine coloured shapes, once the seven ‘blockers’ have been positioned.
Each player receives a Genius Square grid (two are included) and a set of nine coloured shapes, plus seven ‘blocker’ pieces. Roll all seven of the dice together and place a ‘blocker’ piece into the squares matching the seven co-ordinates that appear on the dice. Now race your opponent to fill every other space on the grid using the nine shapes.
There are 62,208 possible combinations in which the dice can fall. Using a specially devised computer programme, we have confirmed that all of them have at least one possible solution. Some combinations will be easy to solve, some much harder. It’s all in the luck of the roll of the dice.
As soon as somebody finishes first, roll the dice and play again! You also can play alone and challenge yourself against the clock!

What our experts think
The Genius Square is a fantastic game that challenges spatial awareness and strategic planning! Our testers loved playing this game and felt it was very interactive and engaging. It was simple to play and we liked that you could play alone and challenging yourself against the clock, or play with another player. The game had a level of competitiveness for older children which they enjoyed and is great for their personal, social and emotional development.
