Arokah Review

The first game I want to talk to you about this week is Arokah. It is a one-of-a-kind 23 piece puzzle that will test your brains, memory and patience. Suitable for the whole family, this game will really get you working together (or on your own if you prefer!) to become the Arokah Master.

Steve C Brazier is the mathematician behind Arokah. He discovered a new mathematical phenomenon. An algorithm which produces 23 unique elements within a single hexagon. Consisting of familiar and unique shapes, the ‘Arokah’ effect is exclusively applicable to the hexagon.  The 23 pieces of the hexagon, can then be used to create various other beautiful, predetermined shapes. To play the game, you must use these pieces to create different shapes. Each level is progressively harder than the last.

Arokah isn’t a board game, as such but you can work alone or together as a team to compete the challenges. The more you play, the better you become. Can you become the next Arokah Master?
