Puzzles. They're a bit of a guilty pleasure, aren't they, like watching Countdown when you should be at work, or doing a wordsearch in one of those puzzle magazines that you always hide when someone else enters the room. They've been predictable and fun since you've been a kid - just like crosswords and Sudoku - but they've never been, how can we put this, cool.

Until now that is.

Welcome to Perplex City - a completely new type of puzzle that's starting to cause more than a stir around the world.

Perplex City It's The Matrix meets Alice in Wonderland meets The Da Vinci Code in one of the most unusual concepts we've ever seen at Firebox. Is it a game? Is it a story? Is it a series of interlinked puzzles spanning mysterious websites, cryptic phone calls, stray emails, hidden messages and live events in random cities around the world? We're not entirely sure but we're looking forward to finding out.

Perplex City What is known is this - a valuable object, the Receda Cube, has been stolen from a place called Perplex City and hidden somewhere on Earth. The people of Perplex City desperately need it back and have offered a reward of UK £100,000 or US $200,000 to the first person that cracks the mystery and finds it.


This is where the puzzles come in. Created by a range of leading designers and illustrators, the Perplex City puzzle cards range in difficulty from the fun and easy to the captivatingly complex. There are beautifully crafted riddles, origami challenges, pop culture trivia, logical mindbenders, 3D mazes, Egyptian hieroglyphs and much, much more. These cards give you a window into the world of Perplex City and contain information and clues essential to unraveling the mystery and finding the missing Cube.

Perplex City New - Starter Pack
Perplex City can be a confusing place. There's so many characters to meet, websites to visit and puzzles to solve. That's what the Starter Pack is all about, it's the perfect primer to the perplexing world of Perplex City. The box contains issue zero of Perplex magazine, ten- track CD, 2 packs of cards, a tourist guide, and even a wallet to store your growing card collection.

This exclusive pack is the perfect gift for anyone - from the veteran player who's already hooked, to the complete beginner looking for something a little more exciting than Sudoku for the long, winter nights. Perplex City is the sort of enigma where sheer brain power isn't as valuable as creative and lateral thinking. In other words, a quick-witted child is as likely to piece the story and clues together as is a retired Maths professor.

There! Now you have gone and done it! Got me hooked! The cube is found but there is still TONS OF FUN and SOLVING in Season 1. BRING ON SEASON 2!
Gene Homan, USA - 10th February 2007
I ordered the perplex city starter pack after reading all the reviews on firebox and solving the online cards. I am totally hooked!! Thanks to Firebox for getting my Perplex City stuff to me so quickly!
Lynsey Hill, Stirling - 20th September 2006
I love Firebox and order loadza stuff so have gotten used to the free sweets (thanks Firebox), but when ordering a <a href="/index.html?dir=firebox&action=product&pid=5">Smokey Amp</a> (which was super) I found a free pack of Perplex City Cards - yes free. After looking through them and solving a few I then got hooked...
Douglas, Kent - 9th September 2006
Get the 36 pack box. This will keep you occupied for ages and is very good value. Not only that but you will get lots of the rare silver and black cards. For example I landed 7 blacks and 11 silver super shiny ones! However it is not all good news as when you begin to get through all those packets you'll end up with a few duplicates. This is not such a problem as they can easily be sold on internet auction sites. Overall this is a really good buy and a great way to start if you've got a few extra quid in your pocket.
Earl Nuce, Lytham-St.Annes - 8th September 2006
I have attempted this puzzle after I found my first pack in one of my orders. Its very addictive trying to solve the puzzles and now got my first leitmark and over 1, 250 pts. Its also great that additionally to the regular orders firebox adds their own free pack. So if you order a 4 pack you end up with 30 cards thanks to firebox !
Christian Radeloff, London - 1st September 2006
