The challenge of this puzzle is to break out of jail. That is remove the ring from the prison cage! A new puzzle from Jürgen Reiche in late 2018 and nothing like the Alcatraz puzzle.

The puzzle is to free the ring! 
And yes, right away this looks like the well known Alcatraz puzzle. But it’s nothing like it.  There is no magnetic lock. No hitting or bashing. 

That’s got you thinking hasn’t it?  So, how to get the ring out when it’s trapped over one and behind the other bars? It’s a bit like breaking out of jail!

And just to make the puzzle a bit trickier there are some unusual optical illusions to deal with.  When you’re playing with the puzzle and looking through the edges of the clear acrylic there is strange mirroring of the ball bearing you can see inside the puzzle. But you’re never quite sure exactly where it is and what you’re looking at.

A new design in late 2018 from Jurgen Reiche and made in Germany by Siebenstein-Spiele. These puzzles sold out pretty quickly and Jurgen has only just made another batch of them since the lockdown.

Size of frame: 65mm x 65mm x 65mm.
No solution included.
Made from laser cut veneered plywood with stainless steel screws and clear acrylic cover pieces. Most of this batch have the tiger pattern wood but the colours can vary.

Difficulty Level 6 stars out of 7 on Jürgen’s scale.
