Using the Revomaze is never a dull moment, with the hidden tricks and the alerting traps that you’ll discover, it never seems to get boring. However, there are a few downsides to owning a high-quality and weighty puzzle. We have come up with 5 tips on how to use the Revomaze safely.

Number 1: ensure that you do not leave the Revomaze on a slippery surface where it is likely to fall off.

On our website shop we sell stands to make sure this problem doesn’t occur, the worst fear is your expensive puzzle rolling off your table on to flooring where it is likely to cause damage to your Revomaze. To prevent this happening, we would recommend that you use a stand for your puzzle where it will live whilst you’re not using it or keeping it somewhere safe where you know nobody is likely to use.

Number 2: Use a puzzle pouch

Puzzle pouches are great because they prevent any sort of damage that could potentially happen to your Revomaze, potential dents, scratches or unwanted marks is the last thing you want to happen! We sell black velvet pouches on our website and usually are always in stock. If you’re interested, you should visit the accessories section on our website.

Number 3: Do not leave unattended with children.

Kids are curious about anything, and the Revomaze could be a potential danger to small children. This is because of obvious reasons such as the internal tiny parts such as pins, the hard outer surface such as the sleeve and the shaft and the bubble label which can be removed quite easily. We would recommend that you are always vigilant and as stated before, keep your puzzle protected as much as possible.

Number 4:  avoid using too much force 

You think you’ve hit a dead-end and you don’t know where to go next, this is one of the most common occurences where too much force is not needed and it can cause damage to your puzzle. It’s important to bear in mind at all times when using the Revomaze that it is fragile and things can go wrong if too much pressure is added. Next time, gently navigate the pin in difficult areas of the maze and take regular breaks if you think you are not making progress.

Number 5: take regular breaks

Following on from number 4, we recommend that you take regular breaks when puzzling. Over a long period of time you will begin to notice that your hands will have aches and pains due to over doing it. It’s vital that you pick it up for a short period of time, come back to it after a little while and start again. Mapping is a popular tactic to solving a Revomaze, if you feel that you are not making any progress, trying to visualise the maze in your head and mapping it can be of help.

We really hope that this short guide made an impact on the way you use your Revomaze’s, we would love to hear your opinions on what you think helps prevent damage to your Revomaze.
