The aim of each of the 165,888 possible puzzles is to complete the star using the eleven coloured shapes, once the seven ‘blockers’ have been positioned. There may be times when it seems impossible, but there will ALWAYS be at least one solution… and that’s why it’s called The Genius Star!
Roll the seven dice and place a ‘blocker’ piece into the triangle matching the seven numbers that appear on the faces. Now race your opponent to fill every other space on the grid using the 11 shapes.
If you have previously played the now legendary Genius Square, you will find The Genius Star’s puzzles to be significantly more testing!
There is also a wonderful new twist to each challenge, in the shape of a ‘Golden Star’. Will you play safe and complete a regular win, or will you go for a double win, by completing the challenge with the ‘Golden Star’ in one piece? Only 57.4% of the puzzles actually have a solution with the ‘Golden Star’ whole, so it’s a tough decision to make. You’ll need speed of thought… and nerves of steel! There’s also a web page where you can input your coordinates and find out whether the ‘Golden Star’ can be completed in one piece!
