The puzzle itself is of good quality and will certainly baffle family and friends and worthy of at least 3 stars overall, but if they can't assemble it correctly at the factory you will be unable to use the puzzle which is why I have rated the product I received as 1 star.
My particular version had the small wooden ball on the wrong side of the Wooden Bar piece, which means you simply can not put the locking piece into position on this puzzle which is the whole purpose of this product.
It meant 30 minutes of frustration trying to work out what I was doing wrong, until I went to you tube and saw a working version of this product and realized that the error lay with the manufacturer not me.
Fortunately I was able to pull the rope out of the locking BLOCK, reassemble it correctly and then re-glue & nail the piece correctly. This is not difficult for anyone with basic handyman skills but for any children or non-handy people this would render this puzzle completely useless.
Once fixed, the puzzle provides lots of fun.
After using,it can be left around,and when seen people will be curious and will want to give it a try.
Another warning might be ,that this sort of puzzle can be very difficult to solve,especially without instructions,so make sure they are with the puzzle when you get it.Although this particular puzzle will be a challenge,it is not all that hard,and if I were to rate it,I would rate it 1 or 2 out of 10;therefore given a little time, most people could solve it.The rest would probably get it if given the instructions.
There were a couple of quality issues with the puzzle but were easily fixed. The beads on the rope would snag a bit. I took the edge of a scissor and ran it inside of the bead (without dissasembling the puzzle). This allowed the beads to slide without catching. Also, the wood piece that goes on top of the bottle had a crack in it at the end furthest from the bottle. I'm not sure if this happened after some use or was shipped that way. In either case, a little wood glue made that a non issue. Overall though, the puzzle looks quite nice and feels good in the hand while trying to solve.
In any case, I would buy this puzzle again...knowing that I might have to do a little prep work to make it operate smoothly. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 due to the quality issues.

This was the second one I bought. The first one we bought in a store. It's hysterical, mind boggling, until the person can get the puzzle open to drink the wine. Read morePublished 22 days ago by Pam

I gave this as a gift to some already inebriated friends, nothing is more entertaining than watching your drunk friends break down in despair because they can't get to the alcohol.Published 25 days ago by sara
The only thing I'd like to see changed is the rope to be either more rugged or the use of a chain. Te rope is easy to stretch no matter how tight I tied it in the set up. Read morePublished 26 days ago by Amazon Customer
