There’s a lot of puzzling to go around over a beer when you set this stand up on your bar!
4 intriguing nail and cast metal brainteasers included on the one stand. The stand includes a couple different nail puzzles made here by Mr Puzzle since way back in the 1990’s and they’re still as popular as ever. Only the Bent Again puzzle on the front can be bought separately now. We don’t make other nail puzzles any more but have included the last few we have on this stand so this is the only way to get them now.
For each puzzle the challenge is to separate the two parts and then join them back together again. Really popular and very intriguing.
For a bit of fun why not try joining one part from a puzzle with one part from another puzzle. We don’t even know if that’s possible but it could be fun trying!
Size: The base of the stand is 120mm x 160mm and it is 140mm high.
We’re down to the last few of these so the metal puzzle on the left of the stand may vary but will be similar to the one shown in the photo.
The package contains a printed solution for each puzzle on the stand.
Mr Puzzle puzzles included on the stand:
The linked nails on the front of the stand are our signature Bent Again puzzle made here at Mr Puzzle. We sell it on its own for $10.00! The puzzle is to separate them and then see who can put them back together again. Perhaps you’ve seen nail puzzles before? But look for the extra bend we added to increase the difficulty of the puzzle. It’s our own design even though others may have copied it since. This is an adaptation of the original nail puzzle that was patented in 1910 in the USA by Walter Jenkins, however, it was certainly known much earlier than that.
The inventor of a simpler form of this type of puzzle, first found in a market in Brazil in 1995, remains unknown. This inspired Mr Puzzle to create a much more complex puzzle, although it does not appear so difficult at first glance. Be very wary of the extra hooks!
This puzzle was designed by Brian in early 1998 and is EXCLUSIVE to Mr Puzzle Australia. It is covered by Australian Design No 138325.
