Part Rubik's Cube, part hieroglyphics, The ISIS ($200) has been called "the most difficult puzzle ever." Each handcrafted aluminum orb features a unique set of etched hieroglyphics which must be positioned — using 10 encrypted clues as a guide — in the right combination to unlock the ISIS. Once unlocked, the ISIS offers you access to the Award Zone, with the chance to win thousands in prizes.
While it might not be as lively as the real-life wizard's chess from Harry Potter, the Wobble Chess Set ($265) is sure to add a little life to the motionless game of chess. Designed by Adin Mumma and made from walnut, the concave board helps the Weeble-like pieces stabilize in their spots, allowing for more interaction between the board and the pieces. Checkmate.
