Edward Hordern IPP Puzzle Exchange - Washington DC, August 2012

Presented by Matthew Dawson. Designed and made by Brian Young @ Mr Puzzle.

The challenge is to work your way through the puzzle to find the barrel of oil.

You've inherited this oil well from Uncle Bubba who plugged it in a very tricky way back in the 1960's when oil was selling for under $3 a barrel. With oil now over $100 a barrel the challenge is to unplug the well. You'll know you've got the oil flowing again when you find the barrel of oil.

Can you pitch your wits against Uncle Bubba and work out how he plugged the well? You will have to discover a range of tools and work out how to use them, some are very well disguised, to reach the final goal. No physical force at all is required to open the drawer when it’s unlocked. If you find yourself forcing something you are doing something the puzzle was not designed to do.

Puzzle is made from Queensland Walnut and has fabricated brass and steel elements and magnets.

Size of base is 48mm x 65mm x 40mm. The oil rig is 100mm tall.

The puzzle has been reviewed on many blogs.  Here's Jerry's Small Puzzle Collection blog review.

Auction Update 15th June 2019 This puzzle was re-sold at Auction on Puzzle Paradise for GBP 305.00 which is approximately AU$ 560.00
