ZahlenSchloss translates as combination lock and that’s exactly what it looks like.
But when the design is by Jean-Claude Constantin you can be sure there’s nothing straightforward about it. Sometimes the dial turns. Sometimes it does not. To be able to solve the puzzle you’ll need to get into the mind of Jean-Claude and understand what else he may have incorporated into the puzzle.
There are many steps to this puzzle and it’s not just a matter of finding a combination of numbers and opening the lock.
Jean-Claude has designed some of the most devious and challenging puzzles around for more than 30 years and this is one of them! And no matter how experienced you are at solving puzzles, he’s always sure to have come up with something new that will challenge and keep you entertained. The Zahlen Schloss is nothing like the very famous Schloss 250 (commonly known in English as Lock 250) that is also available on this website. Another testament to the huge variety of different styles of puzzles that Jean-Claude continues to release.
Size: 120mm x 60mm x 40mm
The puzzle is made from laser-cut plywood and the outside is veneered. This is a natural wood product and so the exact tone of the wood does vary from puzzle to puzzle.
