Recently I won a 'merchant' catalogue from Idéal Loisirs France, the licensee for ITC in the eighties.
The catalogue is from 1982 and shows the new range.

Interesting to notice that Rubik's Game - Rubik's Challenge came with coloured pegs.

I never saw a coloured pegs' version and I would be interested to hear from a fellow collector who has one.

I was lucky to get the catalogue for 2 euros.

Can anyone translate the bit about the Rubik's Game? Is it supposed to play differently?

I'm not the greatest French reader (I've had the last of three years worth of lessons two years ago), but this is my translation:

Quote:
One should align 3 pegs of his colour but taking their turns the other players can mess everything up.
It's a real challenge, a game in which every cube-crazy person can match himself to the others and adapt his technique using math. The cube at its best, a great concept adapted to a family game.
This will be an instant classic for young and old. It will be seen in a advertising campaign, reaching the cinemas and the papers for young and old.

Where's that? I can't find it. I'd like to try and match up the words as I'm doing French GCSE at the moment.

It's very hard to try to match up the words while making a translation, it is easier to get the global idea per sentence and freely translate taking into consideration idioms. Here's a translation that's closer to the original, but still not word for word...

It's a board game for 2, 3 or 4 players based on the famous Rubik's Cube. Everyone must line up 3 pegs of their own color, but other players have, meanwhile, scrambled everything! It is a real challenge, a fight where all the Cube crazies can feverishly measure each other while adding tactic to calculation. It is at last the Cube for many, the extension of a great idea to a collective game. For children, teenagers and adults, it will be permanent; a classic. It will be supported by a major advertising campaign in film and in printed media for children and adults.

As an example of not-word-for-word-translation, pions = pawns, but in this context, pegs sounds better

Skarabajo.

Thanks, I didn't mean to say 'word-for-word', I was just tired. In class I read to get the gist, rather than reading each word. Thanks for the translation. :D

Also, thanks to Georges for the link to the big picture. :D
