5.0 out of 5 stars An amazingly hard puzzle, October 16, 2006
This review is from: ThinkFun Gordians Knot (Toy)
With many puzzles, a few moves will completely take the puzzle apart. They don't allow much playing around. A successful disassembly may mean that the puzzle is undisplayable and put away, sometimes forever.

Gordian's Knot requires lots of moves to take apart -- over 60 -- more than any simple 6-piece puzzle. Thus, it can be fiddled with and set down again in a perfectly presentable state. Taking a puzzle apart is generally more fun than putting one together. Myself, I have thousands of puzzles, but this is the one that I've played with the most, due to the fact that I don't have to do any clean up when I set the puzzle down again.

I'm as much a fan of a great puzzle as anyone--but by definition, if the reviews here are accurate--this is not, in fact, a "Gordian knot." That name implies that there is some not-obvious but simple way to solve the puzzle, and if you think creatively and hit upon the right novel strategy--then, boom!-it's done. Did anyone have that experience?
