The object of the puzzle is to remove the ring. This is the hardest rope disentanglement puzzle around.
We’ve had more positive feedback about how hard this puzzle is than any other since we started making it way be in 1999. This puzzle is EXCLUSIVE to Mr Puzzle Australia and is covered by Australian Design Registration No. 142170
Whilst there have been a few puzzles using similar topology released over the years MR PUZZLE chose to make this design because it appears simple to solve at first, but will actually prove very difficult. In looking for a puzzle to present at the 19th International Puzzle Party in London in 1999 designer Rick Eason of USA wanted one which would be ‘tricky’ to solve. Rick thought the nickname of a famous past President of the USA aptly described his new design.
Note: The disk is designed NOT to go through the loop. It won’t help if you force it and break your puzzle.
Size: 130mm x 40mm footprint of package.
