I can’t stop staring at this mind-scrambling color game

If Dots, 2048, and #TheDress made a baby, it would be Kuku Kube. A new, incredibly simple game has caught the Internet’s attention; you’ve likely already seen Facebook friends obsessively playing it, joking about how if they never get a score higher than 30, they’ll gouge their eyes out.

Here’s how it works: You’ll see a set of squares on your screen. It starts out with just four and multiplies as the game goes on. All the squares are the same color—except for one lone block that’s just slightly off.

You click the different square.

But as the squares multiply, it becomes more and more difficult to find the non-matching one.

Eventually you’ll start to feel like you’re in Home Depot staring at paint swatches, losing your mind because seagull’s-neck gray looks exactly like pigeon-feather gray.

Your eyes will start to gloss over, and maybe if you look away or let things go fuzzy, the solitary square will show itself to you. 

Or just try to hack it.
