Perplexus Epic By PlaSmart Inc. Named 2013 Game Of The Year

OTTAWA, Canada, Feb. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PlaSmart Inc., the Ottawa-based global toy distributor specializing in fun, innovative and engaging products that bring families together, is thrilled to announce that its brainteaser game Perplexus Epic was named the 2013 Game of the Year last night by the Toy Industry Association (TIA).

The Toy of The Year (TOTY) award is the latest accolade earned by Perplexus Epic, which also received the PTPA (Parent Tested Parent Approved) Media Seal of Approval, among others.

"What makes TOTY so special is that it is an award given by a panel of toy industry experts and peers," said Tim Kimber, Owner of PlaSmart Inc.  "We are thrilled that such a distinguished group of people have recognized Perplexus Epic's play-value and cognitive benefits that are so fundamental to the brand through this prestigious award."

Perplexus from PlaSmart Inc. is the ultimate in the Perplexus family of fixed-track, 3D marble maze games. Players must guide a small steel ball around an intricate, 30-foot-long track inside a large, transparent sphere. Unlike traditional, flat-surface mazes, Perplexus Epic challenges players with 125 paths and dozens of barriers.  Along with hours of intriguing entertainment, Perplexus Epic helps promote cognitive development, motor, dexterity and problem-solving skills, and contributes to hand-eye coordination improvement.

There are four Perplexus models, each with a varying degree of difficulty. Perplexus Original with 100 barriers to overcome was launched in 2010.  Perplexus Epic, the most challenging model with 125 barriers to overcome, and Perplexus Rookie for ages 4 to 104, with 70 barriers to overcome, were launched in 2011. The newest addition to the Perplexus family, Perplexus Twist, has a fourth dimension that requires a player to twist and realign the tracks to escape traps, decoys, and cliffhangers.  More information on Perplexus can be found at
