Product Description

Mini rotating cylindrical slide puzzle, with numbers in bold colors. he basic shape of the ENI is cylindrical. The cylinder is divided by several 'ring-shape sections. These sections can rotate independently. Each ring section includes multi- individual parts, with one piece missing. These parts can travel along each ring by using the missing piece (empty space). By rotating and sliding the pieces in and out of the empty space, a multitude of solutions is possible. The object of the puzzle is to place the tiles into patterns by making the rotating and sliding moves that manipulate the empty space. The difficulty of the game is very normal and medial. This is a real puzzle that can be solved without knowing a pre-set series of moves. There is no algorithm, this is a problem solving challenge; just like a jigsaw or sudoku puzzle. No batteries or accessories required! The Mini offers more solutions as each column is 8 pieces by 8 colors. The perfect travel companion- it fits comfortably into your pocket!

First of all, this is a really small puzzle. Tiny. Like the size of a film case (remember those?). And I did know ahead of time that it would be small… I did read the description. But what I didn't account for is with this being so small, and the puzzle having eight pieces in each row, that the individual tiles that need to move would also be REALLY small in turn. The pieces have to be "just right" in order for each horizontal disc to turn on the puzzle. I had purchased this as a fun toy to occupy my daughter on the bus ride to school and back, but if I can't move the tiles easily then I know she won't be able to either. I had an old whip-it puzzle when I was younger (the kind with only three tiles in each color), and although it was only slightly larger than this Eni puzzle, it worked really well and I remember having it for all of my childhood. This toy feels as though if you had to force any of the tiles the least bit, that they will snap off. For $15 I wanted this to be more like the toy I remembered. This one is going back and my search will continue.

I first found this puzzle in the gift shop for the Museum of Modern Art. That place is full of fun, interesting stuff, but this thing kept me occupied for so long that my wife had to drag me out of there. I wasn't in the mood to lay down the cash that day, but the next year I received one as a gift. It's a very simple idea: just a tile sliding puzzle wrapped around a cylinder, but the fact that each row can be rotated independently is what makes it possible. I'm a grown man who probably should play with these kinds of things, but I imagine that younger folk with an interest in puzzles, logic, reasoning, algorithms, math, etc. might also have a good time with this toy.

The Eni puzzle is small, but will keep you fiddling with it endlessly. It is small and quiet and doesn't bother other people. It is expensive, but for a puzzle-lover, I think it's worth it.
I almost gave up trying to make the colors into vertical lines, but kept at it, and eventually, to my surprise I succeeded.
So keep trying! it IS possible!!
FYI, the Eni puzzle website has this puzzle with pastels & with numbers printed on the pieces. But the shipping is expensive (for such a tiny item) and some of the items are out of stock. Too bad Amazon doesn't carry a larger selection of these fun/challenging puzzles.

Unlike the Rubik's Cube, this is a puzzle that requires you to teach yourself how to solve it instead of memorizing a preset series of moves. As you learn to use the empty space as a tool, it evolves from a logical puzzle into interactive design. There is not just one set solution, then you are done. Once you line the colors up you are just getting started. There may be 200 solutions in each puzzle! A revolutionary new way to look at mechanical puzzles. This one is suggested for focus and creativity enhancement.
