Edward Hordern Puzzle Exchange – Kyoto, Japan, August 2016.
Presented by Patrick Major. Made by Václav Obšívac. Designed by Václav Obšívac.
Difficulty 5+/5 on Vinco’s scale.
The puzzle is to assemble the 4 identical pieces into a ball. Each piece is made of three wooden balls joined in an L type shape. A very hard challenge to assemble them into the interlocked wooden ball.
The puzzle come already assembled in a ball and getting it apart is tricky in itself. So much so that Vinco has provided a solution to do this as well as assemble it.
Size: 70mm x 70mm x 70mm
