Jean-Claude Constantin has been a prolific puzzle designer for many years in Europe and has designed and made some very ingenious and original puzzles.  It's hard to get stocks outside Europe because they sell out fast but we have just a few listed here.




Alles fur die Katz 9 piece packing puzzle Alles fur die Katz 9 piece packing puzzle


QTY:





Also known as the All For The Cat puzzle the object is to fit the 9 cats into the cat's head.
This is one of the many very difficult puzzle designed and made by Jean Claude Constantin. The puzzle is rated 7/10 with just one possible solution. When all 9 cats are fitted in the frame correctly there is a surprising amount of space and movement possible so no force is required to place them in.
The perfect puzzle present for any cat lover.

The puzzle uses multi-coloured woods and every puzzle is different. Some examples of colours are:

Lock 250 puzzle lock by Jean Claude Constantin Lock 250 puzzle lock by Jean Claude Constantin


QTY:





Designed by Jean Claude Constantin this puzzle is called Lock 250 because there are 250 moves to open... that means another 250 moves to close again.  And that's only if you get them all correct!   The 4 steel sliders on the front move the internal wooden plates of the puzzles and which slider you can move depends on the position of the internal plates.
The puzzle is made from laser cut plywood and the outside is veneered.
We also have the HUGE Generation Lock in stock here at Mr Puzzle with 8 sliders and many, many more moves to solve.

 
Generation Lock over 340 million moves Generation Lock over 340 million moves


QTY:





Designed by Jean Claude Constantin this puzzle is the big (VERY BIG) brother of the Lock 250 also available for sale at Mr Puzzle.  The 8 steel sliders on the front move the internal wooden plates of the puzzles and which slider you can move depends on the position of the internal plates.

Dr Goetz Schwandtner from Germany did an analysis of the number of moves to solve the puzzle and came up with over 340 million moves! 341 718 750 to be exact.  He has published his theory here.  He says that "assuming we employ a group of puzzlers willing to work full time on this lock, without holidays and in shifts, so that the solving is going on 24 hours a day, and 365 days a year, and on average 2 seconds per  move, this will take about 21.6 years".  A big thanks to Goetz for the analysis.

 
Zahnradlabyrinth double gear maze Zahnradlabyrinth double gear maze Out of Stock





Two start positions. Two balls to get out of the maze. A double maze designed by Jean Claude Constantin to give you double the puzzle fun (and double the trouble!).

Move the two balls around the maze using the two gear wheels.  You need to consider the moves carefully because the gears are meshed together so every move on one gear will also move the other.

A great present for those engineering minded people (or those who think they are!) in your life.
Made from laser cut veneered plywood with perspex cover and so you can see all the workings of the maze; like all puzzles by Jean Claude Constantin the puzzle as a brilliant design with very high quality finish.
