I asked this a little while ago, but no one answered. Maybe it got lost in another thread, so I'll ask again.

Can anyone tell me what the Rubik's Eclipse and Infinity games are like? For example Connect 4 is a game of strategy, but it is also popular with everyone. Are these games too "mental" to be enjoyed by the average person? Are they actually fun? How do they compare to each other?

Thanks,
Rob.

Why not try Eclipse for yourself online?

Unfortuntely, the computer player is very easy, even on the "hard" setting.

Infinity is a variation of Connect-4 where you insert your pieces at the bottom instead of dropping them from the top. Each player has one special "joker" piece that gives you extra scoring points if you get 4 in a row with it. Sounds promising, but I haven't played it yet, and from the rules I can't tell whether it's great or lame...

I'm also a fan of Rubik's illusion. Again, the concept is a wee bit like Connect Four, but in this case, you are trying to make lines of pieces using a mirrored gameboard. Not only can your lines incorporate the reflections of the physical pieces, but you also have to grapple with the fact that some pieces reflect in the OPPOSITE color. In other words, some pieces are red from both sides, some are yellow from both sides,and some are red on one side and yellow on the other. Keep an eye out for it.
