Product Description

Product Description

The Worldwise Imports Square Root Wood Puzzle challenges players to maneuver the largest square out through the slot in the frame without lifting, turning, or removing any of the pieces. This skill puzzle game features a durable wood construction.

Amazon.com

This mind-teasing Square Root puzzle stands out from the crowd for two reasons: first, it's difficult, requiring more than 80 moves to solve; second, it's big (7.5-inches-by-9-inches) and handsome, handcrafted from smooth, unpainted wood, backed with wine-colored felt. The object of the game is to maneuver the largest square out through the slot at the bottom--without removing, lifting, or turning any of the 10 pieces. Did I mention how difficult it is? Luckily, a Cheater's Map to Success is available separately from Square Root Games at an additional charge. --Rebecca Hughes

The rough spots on the solid wood blocks and frame can be sanded smooth easily to a high gloss finish but the bottom is only 3 ply plywood. A felt pad protects the base; I hope the glue holds out over years of play. Made in China. You should have two sets to facilitate the different start positions of the various puzzles and you can then then creatively construct your own. Some have already started their own websites dedicated to proving various "over 80 move solutions," but I demonstrated a 61 mover. Different hardware/software are programmed with different 'move' definitions apparently...

Fast shipping and factory sealed so it is a brand new game at the nice price. I could not find this game in my local area so I was very pleased to find it on Amazon for the price and speed I received it.

This puzzle has a long history.It got started around 1834,travelled around Europe testing people's skills.It was brought to North America by Pioneers.It was simple to make ,even with very basic tools.Today it is made by many companies around the world. There are several different ones here at various prices.Who knows,it may even have been the puzzle that prompted many other "sliding block" puzzles such as the 15 Puzzle or the more recent Rush Hour. There are several sequences whereby the puzzle can be solved,some requiring more moves than others.If you would like to see it being solved,you can see several videos on YouTube,with unbelievable short,but fast solving times.If you have high speed,memory,you might even remember the move sequences.If you are not endowed with such skill,you might go to PuzzleMaster and find a solution.There, the puzzle is called "Scrambler" and you will find a 123 move solution.Supposedly it can be solved in 18 moves.That would require considerable work to find.
