The Perplexus line from Patch Products are 3D Maze games.
“If one had to name it, it would be called a spherical octahedron, but around here we just call it weird, cool, different, warpy, or the hyper egg. The new shape is also a bit easier to hold, doesn’t roll off a table, and maximizes player’s visibility all in a fun new size,” says Matt Nelson of Perplexus, LLC.
Perplexus Warp features nine internal cups that act as “baskets” when you maneuver the marble to leap into them, and new internal pivot that gives the illusion of a magnet sticking to the ball, defying gravity, as it travels across a bridge with no rails. Warp has six flagged check points, 50 challenging events, and is deemed a difficulty level of six.
One player is the “client,” choosing a card and reading aloud the job. All other players use their business cards, selecting the best one for the job, and telling the client why they should be hired! Sometimes the amusing names and witty taglines sell themselves, sometimes you may want to act the part and boast about your imaginary skills.
Components include 200 business cards, 90 cards, and 60 tokens. Odd Jobs is for 3 or more players, ages 14 and up.

Originally published in 2002 and designed by Tom Quinn, Ted Quinn, and Mark Sherry, in this party game, one player reads a topic card and all write down a response. It can be anything that comes to mind, there’s no right or wrong answer. Then all the responses are read aloud and you have to figure out who said what.
