    Worst purchase ever!

    Sifteo cubes was the biggest money waste. We purchased a set and one cube didnt work. We drove out to Barnes and noble to pick up an add on cube. The add on cube did not work! Now we have 4 cubes and two don't work. I contacted sifteo an 2 weeks later they manage to send replacement cubes. One of the replacement cubes is faulty with lines running through it! So now we have 6 cubes. 3 work. 2 don't work at all and 1 is gimpy. From my experience half of all sifteo cubes don't work! That's a very poor product. You need three cubes to play the game and its taken almost a month to get 3 working cubes. The games are not engaging or fun. My boys and I are very disappointed. Sifteo is not offering my money back so now a month later I have to try to return this set as broken to the store.
