Firstly, can you free Merlin’s Eye from the maze without taking any of the ropes out of the mouths of the dragons?
Then you can disassemble the puzzle completely to reveal a new challenge; that of assembling the dodecahedron shape again and enclosing Merlin’s Eye again.
Merlin may have indeed used magic to assemble this puzzle; we hope you can you see success by looking into the future using Merlin’s Eye.
