Product Description

Take the 3 parts apart and put it back to the original shape, that is the objective of this great metal puzzle. A word from the designer: "Patented in America in 1975, the somewhat swirled pieces of this puzzle by Eldon Vaughn must be disjoined and then put back together. I once found a smaller version of this puzzle about twenty years ago in America, but considered it impossible to solve at the time. We have made a new version maintaining the difficulty of the original and licensed it for the Cast Puzzle series. This is without a doubt among the most difficult of all puzzles. The key word is 'Twist'. Don't use too much force...the pieces should just slide apart." Original Designer -NOB 2001

He is still tinkering and seems happy with the challenge.
Gin Fizz
Even after getting it, it's still amazing when you look at it and consider its craftsmanship and that it even works at all.
TEA
Not only is it difficult to take apart, but it is also challenging to put back together again.

This puzzle is amazing! It took me 4 hours to solve, and for the first hour, I couldn't even *IMAGINE* how the thing came apart! You'll want to solve it more than once, as you will likely forget some of the steps in the long sequence of moves required for total disassembly. Of course, that assumes you've completed the challenge of putting the thing back together after you first solve it =). Leave Enigma on your desk and wait for someone to ask, "Hey, what's this?" and you're in for some fun. All in all, a very good mind bending contraption.

This is an excellent puzzle. It seems impossible when you look at these seemingly interlocked iron rings, but that's what makes it great. If you work at it enough, and use your eyes and good mind, you will get it. Even after getting it, it's still amazing when you look at it and consider its craftsmanship and that it even works at all.

This puzzle is great! It is good fun for the entire family. I bought most of the level 6 cast puzzles that hanayama toys company makes, and I can tell you that I liked this one the best. It took me a couple of hours over several days, to take it apart. Putting it in place was no easy task too and it wasn't until the fourth or fifth taking apart, that I was able to understand and remember the flow - what that means is that you can have fun playing with it more than just once. Bottom line: if you want to stimulate some good brain activity, get that puzzle.

I purchased this item for my husband and he has yet to crack it. For the past two years he's been able to complete the other puzzles I've purchased within an hour of tinkering. He is still tinkering and seems happy with the challenge.
