Knot to be Knotted wood and rope puzzle

Mr Puzzle standard range puzzle made between June 1996-Feb 2021.  1652 made.  All sold.
Original Price: AU$11.95


The puzzle is to remove the rope from the wood.

The earliest known reference to string puzzles is in Jerome Cardans’ De Rerum Varietate published in 1557 in which he describes two different string puzzles, one of which is similar to this one. Over the years puzzles have been used to express political commentary (some not so subtle) as seen in the 1918 puzzle called “Hang The Kaiser” where you had to undo the rope from around the “Beast of Berlin’s” neck so you could hang him again by putting it back on.

Be careful not to get it into too many knots, and remember you will need to get the rope back on again if you want to re-use the puzzle!
