Mr Puzzle - We've got puzzles!

Current Category
Puzzles by Type > Wire & Other Metal Disentanglement


austmapsmall.jpgThe brain teaser is to disentangle and reentangle (is that a real word?) the parts of the metal puzzle.  These brainteasers are described as cast metal puzzles, steel puzzles, wire puzzles, nail puzzles, string puzzles or rope puzzles and sometimes even tavern puzzles but the essential ingredient is that they come apart and are made of metal.  Similar disentanglement puzzles can also be found the Metal Disentanglement Hanayama section where we've listed just metal puzzles and cast puzzles made by Hanayama of Japan and the Other Disentanglement category but these are wood puzzles not metal puzzles or cast puzzles.

There are some DISCOUNTED SETS on this page too.  If you're thinking of buying a few puzzles save with our discounted sets.
