Well I love Chess but I found a new puzzle/game that is on the same level of ingenious. Chess requires two persons while this only requires just one. Let's see how far all of you can get through this puzzle. There are 33 levels to master and you will need to bring your thinking cap for sure. Stupid people, such as Bob, could probably only manage to get through 5 or 6 levels no doubt. Seriously, this game/puzzle is ingenious. If you ever liked Chess, this will appeal to you. I'm through level 30 and it's been a kick butt ride.

I bet only a handful of people at the mane could get through all 33 levels. You need to be one smart person to get through all of them.

No download, you play it free on the internet. Read the instructions, trust me, you will need them.

It's called Bloxors - give it your best shot !!!

Post up your results when you are done. Let us know if you conquered the whole thing or did the puzzle take your manhood away from you.

Finished the 1st 10 stages, will continue later.
Nothing too special (I understand it's getting harder) just a nice game.


I have to assume you're not very good at Chess to even suggest thread title. Not even close.

Technically this isn't a game as much as it is a puzzle. I still love Chess but this is different in the fact it's a one person puzzle and not a 2 person game, as in Chess. Let me know how things are going around level 27 bud. ^5

Just passed stage 13. It's a nice puzzler. Has a Tetris feel to it.

Giving this a bump because it is a fun little puzzler that helped me pass time at work on a Saturday. Best effort was 2490 (I think thats within 300 or so of best possible), 33:10 and 0 retries. That was on my second pass through the game though, so I did have solutions for the levels already in my head. Re. the title, not to be a chess snob (cause frankly I am not that good at chess), but talk to me when the game has been around being played by a large percentage of the population of the entire earth for over 1000 years and has become an olympic event, til then I would put this more along the lines of tic-tac-toe, a waste time game with a fixed solution. Fun none the less, so thanks for an afternoon of entertainment.

Yes, it's not really a game like Chess because as you said, the outcome is fixed. There really is only way path to success, while in games, there are sometimes an infinite amount of ways to succeed.

But, it sounds like you enjoyed it so that's all I really was hoping for. That people actually went to the site to check it out and had fun with it.

OK game. Become easier once you get a feel to it.
Last 2 levels (32 / 33) were disappointingly easier than the previous two.

Not even close to chess.
