Metal Puzzles

They are metal but do not condone tossing them out the window out of sheer frustration!!!

The 9 Linked Rings (often called the Chinese Ring puzzle) is said to date back to the Song dynasty (960-1129). It could be the earliest known metal puzzle ever. And still it’s being enjoyed (well, at least puzzled over!) by people today. You’ll find it and many, many other metal puzzles in this category.

When we think of metal puzzles many of us think of small wire puzzles where you need to disentangle the two interlinked parts. And there are many examples of these types of puzzles in our online shop. But there are many other types of puzzles made in metal too.

Metal is a very exact medium to work in and puzzles often need that exactness to ensure they work correctly so the two fit very well together. And metal is strong. As a general rule (with the exception of a very few specific instructions in particular puzzles) we say you are not supposed to use force to separate part of a puzzle. But what if the frustration just gets to you? Most metal puzzles will probably survive a little bit rougher treatment than puzzles made of other materials. We do not, however, condone tossing them out the window out of sheer frustration!!!

These days there are many mechanical puzzle categories where metal is used to make the puzzles. Cast metal puzzles that you disentangle, metal maze type puzzles, puzzle locks, puzzle bolts, and very high end engineered take apart and sequential discovery puzzles. And here at Mr Puzzle you’ll find them all.

One of the biggest names in metal puzzles these days is Hanayama. They’re bringing out new designs to challenge our thinking every year across six different degrees of difficulty. And puzzle lovers want to collect them all. You’ll need persistence to figure out how to disassemble their mechanisms. Maybe by rotating, sliding and some other manipulation the cast metal pieces will come apart but one thing is for sure, they’ll keep you puzzling for hours.

Wil Strijbos is another puzzle inventor and maker who uses the precision of metal to make puzzles that really test the cognitive processes of the puzzler. He is a small volume manufacturer concentrating on smaller quantities of very precisely engineered aluminium puzzles. People are very prepared to wait a long time for the chance to get a Wil Strijbos puzzle!

Metal has been used for some of the oldest puzzles we know too. The Chinese Ring Puzzle (aka The Nine Linked Rings), probably China’s most famous puzzle ever was proven by Stewart Culin (an American ethnographer 1858-1929) to have been invented by the Chinese general Hung Ming in the 2nd century AD.

From contemporary to historical, fun to very difficult, inexpensive to high end precision, if you’re thinking about building your metal puzzle collection then look no further than Mr Puzzle. At any one time we’ve usually got more than 50 different types of metal puzzle on the website.

The Ins and Outs Of Metal Puzzles

Whether you’re interested in metal 3D puzzles, link puzzles, or loop puzzles, metal puzzles can be a lot of fun. If you’re investing in a metal puzzle, there’s a good chance you’ll want it to be of the best quality possible. At Mr Puzzle, we love metal puzzles, and you can always rely on us to have the highest quality metal puzzles available. To help you get the most out of your puzzle, we’ve come up with a short guide on metal puzzles. So, read on and get ready to master your metal puzzles!

Different Kinds Of Metal Puzzles

There are so many different kinds of metal puzzles! The one you end up selecting will depend entirely on your preference and skill level.

  • 3D metal puzzles. These puzzles are often made very precisely, with exact craftsmanship to make them as challenging as possible. No matter how much you try to push and shove the puzzle, you won’t be able to force a solution. There is a specific solution, and you’ll need to find it.
  • Hanayama puzzles. Using very fine mechanics and beautifully intricate designs, Hanayama’s metal puzzles are both gorgeous to behold and difficult to solve.
  • Metal link puzzle. These fun, intricate puzzles more closely represent the old fashioned wire puzzles we all know and love. Don’t be fooled by their simplistic appearance, some of them can prove to be quite tricky!
  • Metal hoop puzzle. One of our favourite things about a metal hoop puzzle is that you can put it in your bag or pocket and carry it around with you. You’ll be able to puzzle over it on the train, in line at the shops, or on your lunch break at work.

How To Care For Your Metal Puzzles

Of all the materials used to create brain puzzles, metal is definitely one of the sturdiest. Like all materials, however, you’ll need to take care of it to keep it in tip-top shape! From large metal 3D puzzles to a small metal chain puzzle, here’s Mr Puzzle’s guide to caring for your brain teaser.

  • Don’t be too rough. We get it; puzzles can be frustrating! We don’t have enough fingers to count the times we’ve wanted to throw a difficult metal loop puzzle out the window. However, we don’t condone puzzle throwing. Not only is it dangerous, but it’s also bad for your puzzle! We know you’ll want to pull, tug, bash, and try anything you can to get the piece to move. However, most metal puzzles require precision and delicacy rather than brute force.
  • Avoid dropping your puzzle. Some of the smaller, fiddly metal link puzzles can be easy to drop, but try to avoid doing so. The slightest bend or change in the puzzle’s structure could inhibit you from finding the solution. Try to solve it over a table or a softer surface.
  • Keep your puzzle in a safe location. As your brain teasers are metal, they’re susceptible to rust and corrosion. Keep your puzzle in a dark, dry place away from any potential spills or damage. If you have a precious puzzle, you may want to consider bubble wrapping it.
  • Keep it away from the kids. Unless you’re supervising them, it’s probably best to keep your metal puzzles away from little hands. Children are curious problem-solvers by nature, but they may not know to be gentle and careful with your puzzle. When using metal puzzles with kids, make sure they know that slow and steady will always win the race!
  • Clean it when necessary. Now and then you’ll want to take your puzzle apart and clean it thoroughly. Dirt, oil, and build-ups can prevent it from functioning correctly, so make sure your puzzle is kept clean. To avoid having to clean it often, wash your hands before every use and keep it stored in a clean location.
