The concept here is very simple: use all of the cardboard squares to make a square puzzle in which all touching pieces only touch other pieces of the same shade. i.e. white touches white; black touches black. A simple idea and to begin with it is very simple - another multi-age friendly game. Towards the end, things get tricker and you have to swap pieces in and out in order to complete your square. Once you've managed to complete the first square, there are variations using shapes to make the challenge more devilish - I've not attempts those yet as its still a new-ish purchase but it means the game has longevity. My only criticism would be that the pieces are cardboard - given the usual quality of ThinkFun's games, I'm surprised the playing pieces weren't made of some sort of plastic to make them more durable and resistant to damage.

Although this can be done as a solitary activity, my son and I have sat a few times to attempt it together. You think you're making great progress and then there is a final piece that doesn't fit, so keep trying! It's good fun, a very simple concept, inexpensive and portable.

HASH(0x91cf3eb8) out of 5 stars Excellent, portable puzzle 15 Aug. 2007
By Learning All The Time - Published on Amazon.com
This puzzle is fascinating to my kids. As you can see from the picture, each side of the black and white square can be all black, all white, or split black/white or white/black. The object is to match sides and create a square using all of the pieces.

Granted, we rarely build the entire puzzle using all the pieces - in fact, we've probably lost a handful. But the kids just build as far as they can, they like trying to match up sides, particularly when they must match up 2 or more sides. Sometimes they'll race each other, to see who is first to build a 5x5 puzzle, but usually this game is a cooperative effort to see how many pieces they can place.

I love this game because it can productively entertain the kids for 15-20 minutes, I enjoy helping them, and it's a great value b/c you can lose some pieces and still play it. Plus it is portable; we often keep it in our "wait bag".

HASH(0x92bde0a8) out of 5 stars more expensive at amazon.com 15 Dec. 2011
By shopper - Published on Amazon.com
Just saw this toy in a Barnes and Noble store for $5.95. Amazon is selling for $6.71. The Think Fun company makes it and says the list price is $5.99. Amazon claims the list price is $9.99.

The game looked like fun. I will go back to the store to purchase it.

In the future I will be more careful before assuming amazon.com offers the best bargain.

HASH(0x925435dc) out of 5 stars Just found my Christmas present to myself :) 1 Dec. 2010
By Kati Mendez - Published on Amazon.com
Okay, so when I was out at the bookstore trying to find a $5 item to add to my son's $20 so that he could get a free bear with $25 purchase, I found this game. Immediately I was drawn to it and knew I had to have it. It's been years since I've put puzzles together - puzzles kept me busy daily as a child. This is similar to a puzzle, but yet not. It's much more addictive! We sat down as a family tonight to play it, and found that it makes you frustrated, it makes you laugh, it makes you think, and it lets you have fun all at the same time. Of course my husband and son gave up but I had to sit and try and try and try to finish it - which I still haven't done yet! But you'd better believe this is one game that I can't put down :) I'll return to it tomorrow to try and finish it again. And after telling a few of my friends about it, they went out and bought some for Christmas gifts - I'm thinking I'll probably do the same!

HASH(0x91e8bbc4) out of 5 stars A great entertainment for all ages 10 Oct. 2010
By Jerry Guild - Published on Amazon.com
This puzzle came on the market in 1992.It came out a year before IZZI 2 (see my review dated April 8,2010);and made by the same company Binary Arts Corp,which has come up with a lot of well made,and entertaining games or puzzles for all ages.If you are familiar with the name of Binary Arts;and wonder how come we don't see new puzzles from them anymore;fret not .This company has now been renamed ,among other things,and now goes by the name of ThinkFun,and continues to come out with excellent games.
IZZI consists of 64 tiles,each 2 X 2 inches.The tiles have various Black and White designs.The challenge is to place the tiles next to each other so that colors are matched.There is no single solution,even when all tiles are used to make an 8 X 8 tile square.Smaller squares can also be attempted,especially for the younger set.This game is almost without limit in the challenges that can be made,and even competition between players;both in the size and shape as well as time challenges.The package indicates how challenging versions can be tried.There is no booklet with IZZI with challenges as is the case with II 2.
One will never exhaust the possibility of games that one can make up.
However;the tiles are made of cardboard,and will wear in use.It is a shame that a little more quality wasn't put into making the tiles of plastic.But even so;this game will provide years of enjoyment and creative play for all ages;and can be enjoyed by one or more people.

HASH(0x91cf7270) out of 5 stars Fun puzzle...makes you think 7 Sept. 2009
By Lover of Kids Books - Published on Amazon.com

Izzi is a great puzzle that interests multiple ages. My 3- and 5-year olds enjoy trying to match up the pieces and just see how big they can build it. Adults are challenged to put the whole puzzle together. It's easy till you get close to the end, then fitting those last pieces in becomes a fun challenge.
